Principal's Weekly Message

CMS Families...

As we spring ahead, and the daylight hours increase, it's a great reminder that warmer days are ahead. This year has really moved swiftly and we have accomplished a lot. As for the week ahead, we will continue to dig in and work hard to make a difference for every student.

For your planning purposes, 8th grade students and parents are invited to attend a Showcase night on Wednesday, March 16th at 6:30 p.m. to become a little more familiarized with everything SH has to offer. This is always a great night and their administration, staff and students always do an amazing job selling Shepherd Hill's WHY...

Finally, Friday is a half day due to professional development for staff. Dismissal will be at 11:15 a.m.

I/we are looking forward to another great week at school.

Please feel free to reach out to me directly if I can be of any assistance.

Wishing everyone a great week.

Yours in education,

Dean W. Packard - Principal

Mr. Rogalski - Assistant Principal
