Wizard of Oz Musical
The school and community were treated to great entertainment with this year's GSA Musical Theatre Club's production of "The Wizard of Oz." Congratulations to the cast and crew for an outstanding job! Your GSA family is proud of you. Kudos to our directors: Mrs. Cathy Serio, Mrs. Margherite Alfano and Ms. Donna Russomanno. They did it again!
Easter Basket Offering
Members of our National Junior Honor Society made baskets filled with chocolate candies supplied by the 6th, 7th and 8th graders. They were brought to the infirmary of Sisters of the Religious Teachers Filippini at Villa Walsh in Morristown. The sisters were very grateful and happy to see the Amanda and Reema, representatives of NJHS, presenting them with some Easter joy.

Help the Falsetta Family
The Falsetta family suffered a devastating fire early Friday morning, March 20. They are a family of four with a first grader boy attending our school and a five year old girl. We ask for your generosity of gently used toys, books, games or clothing for the children. Possibly gift cards for Shop Rite, Kohls, Walmart, CVS, etc. Whatever you feel would be helpful as the family adjusts to this tragic event in their lives. Items may be delivered to Good Shepherd Academy on Brookline Avenue. If anyone wishes to make a monetary donation you can do so by writing a check to the GSA Home School Association for the Falsetta Family Fund. Thank you for your generosity.
