We have an important update for you to include in your calendars. The Board of Education has approved that there will be no school on Friday, May 12, due to a number of the faculty being out of town on this date.
Since we are making an unexpected change to the calendar, childcare will be available for this day for any families that are unable to accommodate this change.
If you decided to split the registration fee into two payments, we will be extending the deadline for the second payment to April 17th. The second payment amount is $200. A reminder that the registration fee secures your spot for the 2023-2024 school year.
School Pictures – Yearbook
Each year, students are able to purchase a yearbook that has class photos and highlights from throughout the year. Sheena Carter is kind enough to put together the yearbook for the school. If you have any pictures from school events that would work for the yearbook, please share them with her through Google Photos – [email protected].
For those that have an 8th-grade student that is graduating, each student receives their own page in the yearbook with pics throughout their life and, if you so desire, a special message from their parents/guardians. These items can also be sent to Sheena Carter.

The Talent Show is this Thursday, March 30, at 6:30. Students from grades 3-8 will be able to display any type of talent, and students in grades K-2 will be performing some mini-items as a class for the talent show. We will have practice on Monday and Thursday. If students can bring any necessary items, that would be great. We will also have pizza for students and families available starting at 6:00. If you plan on eating pizza, please fill out the Google Survey through the link below.
Teacher Changes for Next School Year
We have some upcoming changes for our faculty next school year. Mrs. Ross will be stepping down from teaching, and Mrs. Jones will be retiring. We are very thankful for all of their years of service at our school.
Shepherd of the Hills will be adding a teacher for grades K-2 and for grades 3-4 for the 2023-2024 school year. This Wednesday, leadership will be extending calls to two teachers for those classrooms. I will continue to communicate what decisions are made through email and the newsletter. If you have any questions, please let me know.
