Spartan Weekly

Shepard Middle School 5/6/22

Happy Mother's Day!!!

Happy Weekend Spartan Families:

We just clicked under the "20 days left" marker and the summer break excitement can be felt in our classrooms and our hallways. We had a productive week as we celebrated our teachers and completed our final round of MAP testing. For our students who missed testing due to absence and for those that need some extra time to finish, we will have make-up sessions during encore periods all next week.

Next week we will have our annual Erin's Law presentation (see below) and we are looking forward to our final Band, Orchestra and Choir Concert of the school year.

Thank you to our amazing Shepard PTSO and all of our Spartan families who helped to make this week special and let our teachers know how much we appreciate everything they do to make our school a wonderful place to learn and grow.

Wishing all of our Spartan mothers a very special and happy Mother's Day!

The Shepard Learning Commons (LC) staff is excited to share a wonderful opportunity for our students--a virtual author visit with Jennifer Nielsen hosted by local bookseller, The Book Stall! Ms. Nielsen is a fave among students and staff here and has written many incredible titles such as the 2018 Illinois Caudill Winner, A Night Divided. Her latest book is Lines of Courage and will be made available for purchase through The Book Stall and includes an autographed bookplate! (Books must be purchased by May 23 and will be delivered to our school.)

Students who are interested in attending our virtual author visit in the Shepard LC on Thursday, May 19, from 9:10-10:00 am will need to seek permission from their teacher(s) and arrange to make up any missed work. They also must sign up with their DPS109 e-mail to attend here:

We look forward to this event in our Shepard LC! Please let us know if you have any questions.
