Principal's Newsletter

Good morning Shepherd Families,

I hope you have a peaceful weekend. Tomorrow is EdFest, which will be held virtually again this year. Please remember that families are our best recruitment tool. Please feel free to refer interested families to me at any time. Please see the important announcements that follow, and take care.

Picture Retake Day is Monday, December 13th

Please respond to this email if your child needs a retake, and you have not communicated with me yet.

Boys & Girls Basketball Coaches Needed

Please contact Mr. Muskett ([email protected]) if you are available to coach one of our Shepherd teams. It is an exciting year for us as we will finally be able to host home games! Each team practices two afternoons a week from 3:30-4:30. The game schedule has yet to be announced. Thanks for your consideration.


As an IB school, Shepherd is committed to caring by supporting our local community and The Capital Area Food Bank.  Will you join us in donating to our Virtual Food Drive starting on Friday, November 19 – Friday, December 10th?  We want to support the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal of “Zero Hunger.”  Our goal is to donate $500. There will be a cupcake party for the grade level that collects the most donations!  

Please give here and record your giving for the competition here. No gift is too small.
