Rain, Rain, Go Away

We are so ready for Monster Dash tonight - even if the rain might bring us inside. Thank you for all of your work towards making Monster Dash a success and helping our PTA to raise funds for all the amazing things we get to do here at Shepard.

Kristin and Kate are going to be starting TTESS observations over the next few weeks. We will be in and out of classrooms still for walk-throughs also. We love seeing all of the amazing teaching that is happening everyday!
