It is our 30th Annual Jazz Night this year! Please sign up to bring something to the potluck and invite some of your friends and neighbors! Dr. Wallace has some great musicians lined up and it’s a great time to chat and meet with other Shepherd families! This community event is supported by the Shepherd PTA.
PTA meeting – Wed, Feb 27 at 6:30 pm
Principal Neal from Deal Middle School will be joining us to talk about tranisitioning to middle school and what Deal is all about! More on the agenda will be sent out tomorrow.

Save the date for the FY 19-20 School Budget Hearing on Friday, March 29 at 10 am. Bring your students to testify!
