Donate to Shepard's STREAM Lab

Shepard has been working towards creating, improving and granting access to Shepard Students for our STREAM Lab located in the Library. We have made amazing strides to provide students with many hands on learning activities and opportunities but there is so much more we'd like to do! Please consider donating to help us reach our goals of providing Shepard Students nothing but the best in STREAM education.

Shepard Elementary PTA is proud to sponsor the 2016-2017 Earthsavers Program. This program is open to Kindergarten through 5th grade students who want to learn more about the earth and how to be responsible citizens of our environment.

Please start collecting your Box Tops. They will be collected on Friday, October 21, for the first Contest of the school year. Each Grade level has a container, so your student just puts them in a baggie and brings them to their Gr. Level Box. The grade that brings the most Box Tops in, wins a Popcorn Party!

This is a huge fundraiser for PTA, and the funds always go back to the kids! Thank you. If you have any questions, please contact Julie Sluder at jsluder97@hotmail.com.
