Student Life

Growing beyond the regular curriculum in skills and relationships.

With the help of parents, teachers, and members of the congregation, we are able to offer many extracurricular opportunities for students. We have extracurriculars in athletics, fine arts, and technology with more being added each year.

We are truly grateful for all those who give to these programs with their time, talents, and gifts. Although we are a small school we offer many opportunities for students to grow outside of the standard curriculum. In our small school setting, students may pursue a variety of extracurriculars to improve their abilities and to engage in social settings with other students. In all things the students are encouraged to glorify God with their abilities.

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord.” – Colossians 3:23

Athletics

Basketball

Each Fall our school is given a plow for the cities snow plows to paint. Our art teacher leads the students through the painting process for a creative, original mural on the large blank plow “canvas”. After school for about 6 six weeks, students can opt into this art experience to have a hand in creating and to learn skills in this painting medium.

Volleyball

We have offered volleyball for 3rd-5th for the past two years through a YMCA league.

Cheer

3rd – 8th girls may participate in cheer during the basketball season to cheer during tournaments and perform at Good Shepherd.

Track & Field

We compete each year at the Great Plains Lutheran High School Track meet and we hope to grow into a full track team to compete in multiple meets next year.

Fine Arts

Junior Choir

The 2018-2019 school year is the first year of Good Shepherd’s new Junior Choir. 3rd-8th grade students are welcomed to join this choir which meets weekly to practice for singing in several worship services throughout the year and select performance pieces for other events like our Talent Night. They will also have vocal training in order to learn pitch, breathing properly, singing in harmony,  and more.

Piano

Our piano teacher offers piano lessons for any student from 2nd-8th during the school day for a fee. We will make sure any student in piano can have their lesson at a time as unobtrusive to their school schedule as possible.

Paint the Plow

Each Fall our school is given a plow for the cities snow plows to paint. Our art teacher leads the students through the painting process for a creative, original mural on the large blank plow “canvas”. After school for about 6 six weeks, students can opt into this art experience to have a hand in creating and to learn skills in this painting medium.

Technology

Robotics

We believe as disciples of Jesus Christ that all believers are commissioned to teach the truth of His Gospel to all people. It is therefore our responsibility to proclaim God’s Word to all students under our care so that the Holy Spirit can work faith and nurture it in their hearts. God’s truth, revealed through His inerrant Word, is not only taught in the religion curriculum but permeates all areas of the school’s curriculum, activities, and environment.
