Newsletter 9/27-10/3
Dear Families:
This past week was a short but busy week. Students started using their Wordly Wise
vocabulary books and played a variety of games to practice using their new words. We
also read and discussed the geography themes of human interaction with the environment
and movement. Classes looked for these items in CNN Student News and gathered facts
from the broadcasts to be used in their current event summaries.
Responsibility is the character trait for September at Shepherd. Pieces were written about
people that students felt exemplified responsibility. I have enjoyed reading their papers
highlighting the character of everyone from family members to famous members of
The Shepherd book fair starts Monday, September 28th through October 6th (Curriculum
Night). The book fair is a great opportunity to purchase books for reasonable prices and
to also help the school purchase critical resources for our students.
Dine at Chick-fillet on Wednesday, September 30th. Not only will you enjoy a tasty
meal, but you will be greeted by some of our awesome staff from Shepherd while
helping support our school.
Lastly, I enjoyed the opportunity to meet with parents this past Friday. Parents who
where unable to come in on Friday, please contact me so we can arrange a time that is
convenient for you.
Have a great week and please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
