Track is for grades 5-8 with the occasional need for 4th graders to complete the team. Good Shepherd participates in one track meet held at St. Croix Lutheran Academy (West St. Paul), which is coordinated by the Lutheran Grade School League. Individual events are chosen by students with the guidance of Mr. Arndt. Each student is allowed to run in two running events and be in one field event, or one running event and two field events. Students compete against students in their grade; boys against boys, and girls against girls. Practice information will be posted closer to the actual meet.
Bowling is open to all students in grades 5-8, and no experience is required! It’s a Baker-Style Bowling Program that is the same as high school bowling in the state of Minnesota. Teams are formed based on the talent levels of those participating. Practice is held once a week at Apple Place in Apple Valley. The day and time of practice will be determined shortly before the season begins. Matches are played against schools from our area Lutheran Grade School League. We typically bowl two matches of five games each on Friday evening or Saturday mid-morning at different bowling centers around the Twin Cities area. Matches take about three hours and are a great time to get to know other families!
