Hey Shepherd Families – 5 weeks until Gala time where we have a ton of fun at an adults-only night out at Bobby Vans on Sat, May 4th and raise some serious money for the PTA to support our students, teachers and staff next school year!

What Does the Auction and Gala Support?
The Shepherd PTA provides nearly $35,000 annually to directly support our school community including: teacher and classroom supplies, classroom libraries, field trips for every grade level, a new Teacher Assistance Fund program, school and community programs and events like Fall Fest, Movie Nights, Camp and Health/Wellness Fairs, and more.

Most importantly, we will have a dedicated appeal at this year’s Gala to focus fundraising on STEM materials, curriculum and hands-on opportunities for our students next school year. More details to come…

Our FANTASTIC team of volunteers has been hard at work collecting awesome experiences, event tickets, gift cards for great places to take the kids, and fun activities for adults too!
