Principal's Pen
Welcome Back!    I hope you all had a wonderful summer. I also hope you are relaxed, recharged and ready to start a new school year. I am so delighted that you are part of our amazing community. I welcome and value your positive energy and dedication to excellence in education, and I look forward to working with you and your children.
All signs point to another incredible and productive school year. Our skilled and devoted teachers have had an amazing first week of school with your child(ren). Our enthusiastic office team is here to answer your questions and help you with school needs and have been busy ordering needed materials and updating student files. Please note...

School T-Shirts 
It's not too late! We are 10 shirts shy of our goal of 100 shirts so we have extended our deadline until Monday, August 27.  T-shirts will be delivered the week after Labor Day. Click HERE  to view and order t-shirts. 

Pizza Order Forms
We are doing pizza a little differently this year. Instead of twice a month, pizza will be served each Friday. Also, instead of ordering for the whole year, you will be able to order for a month at a time. Order forms will be sent home on the third Friday each month and due back to the office by the last Friday. Order forms can be accessed by clicking HERE. They were also sent home today with your child.

PTL News
Welcome back to school. I hope everyone had a wonderful summer break with their families. We are looking forward to another fantastic year!
First meeting of the year will be Monday, August 27, 3:45-5:00 pm in the office conference room. Childcare is provided free of charge. Parents of preschoolers-Eighth Graders are welcome to join us. This is a great way to get to know other parents at Shepherd and earn volunteer hours at the same time.

Room Parents: We are in need of room moms or dads for this year. They are mainly responsible for helping to organize the class parties (only 3) that we have during the year along with helping the class celebrate your teacher's birthday. If you like to throw parties this would be a great way to earn volunteer hours. Please contact our Room Parent Coordinator Michele Schulteis at
Feel free to contact our PTL president Adrienne Olsen for more information.
