Shepherd PTOPTO Bulletins

Hi Mustang families,
A few updates as we hit AUG 1 today! More info from Dr. Hedlund is coming soon re: supply lists and how class lists will be shared prior to school starting.
We will also be sharing a sign-up link for you to join PTA Committees to help us support the many activities we’ve already been planning and to sign up to be a Room Parent for your child’s class.
Enjoy the last few weeks of summer and hope to see you at some of the upcoming events in August.
Don’t forget to “like” our Facebook page for even more info and reminders @ShepherdElemPTA.
THANKS!
Liz and the PTA crew
