Back to School Blast Off

It’s the LAST week before school starts, vacations are almost over and the weather looks a bit cooler for this Saturday’s Beautification Day and School Supply Drive! That can only mean – it’s time to sign up for a shift and get back in the swing of things!

Come meet new families, work on projects to make the school FABULOUS for next week, and help us make sure the school is stocked with supplies for this school year. NOTE – these supplies will be used in the specials’ classrooms and general school locations, not the supplies needed for your child’s class.

We have a curated Amazon link for the supplies needed for Art, Music, Library, French, Spanish, Special Ed, etc. Any purchases made will be MUCH APPRECIATED and can be shipped right to the school – 7800 14th Street NW, Washington, DC, 20012 – or dropped off on Thursday from 9 am – 7 pm, Saturday from 9 am – 3 pm or the first week of school.

Lastly, WE’RE LOOKING FOR PARENT VOLUNTEERS!

If you’d like to be on a PTA committee, help at an upcoming event, or serve as a room parent, click here to sign up! WE NEED YOUR HELP TO DO ALL THE GREAT THINGS WE HAVE PLANNED FOR THIS YEAR!

Last, but not least, we have an updated SCHOOL HANDBOOK FOR PARENTS! ShepherdParentHandbookFinal

See you all on Thursday at the “Sneak Peek” play date at school and on Saturday at Beautification Day!
