News and Events

The school year at Shepherd Elementary School is rife with activities and events—both during and after school hours.   The robust calendar is a lot to keep track of and few of us can be present for, or directly involved with, all of it.  This section of the website is designed to keep families and faculty, alike, informed about what’s coming up, what’s going on, and what we might have missed—at Shepherd, as well as within DC Public Schools.

We hope you will bookmark this page and visit it often!  Events and announcements will be added throughout the year.  If you’re short on time, click first on The Mustang newsletter, a quick but comprehensive overview of everything you need to know most.

Please remember…  communication at Shepherd is a team effort!  Please let us know if you would have information to share.  We also welcome your photos for the website, newsletter and social media.  (But please, only photos of your own kids or those whose parents have agreed to let you share them.)
