Midsummer on a Playground
What a great turnout of Shepherd ES families and neighbors from Shepherd Park at the
Midsummer on a Playground
production by Pocket Change Theater last weekend! As you can see, the actors performed right on the Shepherd Park playground, even using some of the playground equipment in the production.
We look forward to seeing everyone at Back-to-School Night! This is a wonderful opportunity to hear from your child's classroom teacher as well as the special subject teachers (like Physical Education, Art, Music, Library, French, and Spanish).
The Star Achievers Program will provide childcare during Back-to-School Night. If you plan to use this childcare, please review these important details:
- Children do not need to be enrolled in Star Achievers to come for care during Back-to-School Night.
- Childcare will take place in the cafeteria and in a classroom for early childhood age students.
- No children under age 3.
- Siblings who are not enrolled at Shepherd can participate in childcare.
- Parents must sign their children in and out. Children should not go down to the cafeteria by themselves or with older siblings.
- Children cannot be automatically transferred from Aftercare to Back-to-School Night childcare. Parents need to sign their child out of Aftercare and into evening childcare.
The PTA has a new shipment of t-shirts for students plus some new hoodies. We also have t-shirts for parents who want to show their Shepherd pride. The Shepherd wear will be available for purchase at Back-to-School Night. Remember - your students can wear their Shepherd gear every Friday for Spirit Day!
