Are You New to Shepherd?

Attention New Shepherd Families! The PTO would like to host some Zoom meet-ups for parents new to the school. We’d like to do some large group sessions as well as smaller group meet-ups. And, we’d also love to get new students connected with other Shepherd students! 

If you are a new family and have any interest in being a part of these Shepherd meet-ups, email Caroline Smith (mom of Henry, 4th grade, [email protected]). Please include your name, contact information, and the names and grades of your students.

Connecting with Specials’ Teachers

This Friday (Oct 9th) there will not be classes, so parents can attend conferences with Shepherd teachers. Your homeroom teachers will communicate their sign up procedures. If you would like to meet with a Specials teacher, please use the links below to secure a time.

Seeking Room Parents and Other Volunteers – WE NEED YOU!

We are seeking Room Parents for all Shepherd classrooms. In past years, we have had more than one Room Parent per classroom so please feel free to volunteer at the following link, in case you are interested.

This link will also solicit interest in any other school-related volunteer activities for SY2020-21…so, even if you aren’t up for serving as a Room Parent, feel free to check it out and let us know if you can lend help in other areas.
