Dear Shepherd families,

It was great to see so many of you on Friday celebrating Ms. Johnson and her remarkable career serving children. There was so much love and appreciation on 14th Street yesterday. Thank you especially to our PTO co-Presidents, Liz Bradley and Taryn Beridon, and staff members, Ms. Akaba, Madame Gadie, Ms. Hagan, Ms. Holt, Mr. James and Mr. Velez (former), for their efforts to make it such a sweet and special event. We love you, Ms. Johnson.

Unfortunately, our moving up ceremonies scheduled for yesterday had to be rescheduled, but fortunately, Juneteenth is now a federal holiday. Happy Juneteenth!

Here is the new schedule for popsicles and praise:

PK 3 Thursday 6/24 from 10-11
PK 4 Thursday 6/24 from 9-10
K Monday 6/21 from 2-3
1st Thursday 6/24 from 1-2
2nd Tuesday 6/22 from 2-3
3rd Thursday 6/24 from 11-12
4th Thursday 6/24 from 2-3

Enjoy the weekend! And please look forward to an overview of our vision for SY21-22 and end of year student achievement data next week.

Phyllis
