Shepherd PTOPTO Bulletins

WELCOME TO OUR PK3 AND PK4 STUDENTS!
We’re excited to welcome our newest Mustangs, the PK3 and PK4 students, and their teachers and staff tomorrow – Thursday, Aug 29! We hope you have a GREAT first day!
“Kiss and Ride” drop off on 14th Street in the mornings STARTING TOMORROW – NO PARKING ZONE
14th Street between Kalmia and Jonquil Streets (closest to the school) will be designated as a “Kiss and Ride” drop off area in the mornings from 8:20-8:40 am. Staff and administrators will be there to help your children out of the car and to get them to their morning drop off locations.
INCLEMENT WEATHER DROP OFF LOCATION FOR 4TH AND 5TH GRADERS
If there is rain, snow, sleet, hail, or it’s below 32 degrees on school mornings, please drop off your 4th and 5th graders in the multipurpose room.
GET YOUR T-SHIRTS!
PTA will be selling t-shirts again on Thurs morning at school in the atrium from 8-9 am. We’ll have more in stock in the smaller sizes and some new designs available, including a unisex navy polo! More hoodies, long sleeve shirts and winter gear will be coming by Fall Fest on Oct 19!
SHEPHERD BEAUTIFICATION DAY SUCCESS!
Thanks to the more than 75 volunteers (parents, students, and community members included!) who came out for Shepherd Beautification Day this past Saturday! We planted, weeded, scrubbed, cleaned, organized, created and
purged to get the school ready for everyone to come back this week! We truly appreciate your time, energy and enthusiasm. The school looks fantastic!
