Dear Shepherd Families,

There was a lot of holiday cheer at today’s All School Meeting! Thank you to Ms. Pereira, Ms. Mack, Ms. Murali, Ms. Hagan and Dr. Leonard for bringing us so much joy this morning. They spend a lot of time rehearsing to get it just right, and because they have so much fun as a team, we have so much fun as an audience. If you missed today’s broadcast, you can see it Tuesday night 12/21 at 6:30pm here.

For more holiday cheer, look here. Mr. Hernandez, Madame Gadie and Ms. Hernandez collaborated for their students to create Christmas cards.

And, on December 21st, the PTO is sponsoring a celebration for staff from 3:30-4:00 pm in the courtyard.

As all of you know, Covid-19 cases are spiking again. Here are a few reminders as we approach Winter Break:

  • Reminder #1: Get vaccinated, and if eligible, get your COVID vaccination booster.
  • Reminder #2: Practice healthy hygiene habits such as hand washing.
  • Reminder #3: Always wear your mask unless you are eating or drinking.
  • Reminder #4: Remember to practice physical (social) distancing.
  • Reminder #5: Do not send your children to school if they are feeling ill or experiencingCOVIDsymptoms.

Ready for Math and Reading is available over break to keep your student on track. Please encourage its use. And let’s have a school-wide pajama day on Wednesday, December 22nd to celebrate the end of 2021!

Enjoy a wonderful weekend, and I hope to see you before Winter Break!
