EXCITING SCHOOL IMPROVEMENTS:  I wanted to share with you pictures of school improvements made from our PTO fundraiser, that you all helped and contributed to this past year.  We were going to surprise the children when they came back from spring break with the additional swings and the shade!  However, COVID impacted our plans, but we still wanted you see the new additions - the swings and the shade (please note that we're going to put cement under the shade so it isn't muddy for the children when standing under the canopy)!   We love our Shepherd Community!  Principal Mitchell

It has come to our attention that there are several mistakes in the blue monthly I-SS calendar that was sent home with your child.  Of particular importance are October 28 and January 3.


*October 28, 2019 is NOT a teacher workday.  Students will report to school on October 28

*January 3, 2020 is Winter Break.  Students return to school after the winter break on Monday, January 6, 2020

Thank you Dale Jr and Amy, Vera Bradley and Blessings in a Backpack

The Dale Jr. Foundation has provided food every weekend for approximately 100 Shepherd students every year, for many years, through a program known as "Blessings in a Backback."  Due to this partnership, Shepherd was selected by Dale Jr. to receive a carnival-like event and brand new Vera Bradley backpack, thru Blessings in a Backpack and Vera Bradley!  Dale Earnhardt, Jr. and Amy made a surprise visit to our school and visited with our students!  It was a wonderful day!!!
