Hi Mustang parents,

It’s August now and that means that school is right around the corner…

Just a few updates and info to share as you’re preparing for school to start.

School supply lists – are being shared in the teacher assignment letters that are being sent home via mail. We are working on getting an electronic copy and will share ASAP.

PK3 and PK4 start dates – these students have staggered start dates to help with acclimation into the Early Childhood classes. Will share drop off location info soon.

Thurs, Aug 23 (full day of class) – Last names A-K

Fri, Aug 24 (full day of class) – Last names L-Z

K-5 start date – Monday, Aug 20 – doors open by 8:20 am and classes start at 8:45 am sharp. Please drop off your students in the multi-purpose room – look for the balloons!

Uniforms – Students are permitted to wear Shepherd gear every day to school! YAY! We’ll be selling t-shirts at the upcoming school events so you don’t have to deal with just white polos! Navy bottoms are still requested. 

Shepherd Star Achievers Before and After Care – The before and after care program is in the midst of transitioning registration platforms, so will be starting before and after care registration closer to Aug. 13. The link will be shared as soon as they are ready to take registrations. 

Informal Play Date – We’ll be hosting one more play date this summer – Sat, Aug 11 from 10-noon – so come on over to the park on the lower field below the school (Jonquil side of the street) to see friends and buy your Shepherd gear!

School Beautification Day – Will be Sat, Aug 18 from 10-1 at the school. Come see the school, find your classroom, volunteer to do some clean up, painting or helping the teachers, and have an ice cream with classmates. Link for volunteer sign up slots:

More soon – and enjoy the last few days of summer!
