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.
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.
Before and Aftercare Link
If you are using before and after care this week, please take a moment to fill out the times using the link below.
All students from grades 1-8 are invited to participate in our annual Track Meet in Carlsbad on Saturday, May 6th. Please consider if your child would like to participate and take a quick moment to let us know. Students will need to know which events they are doing by this week Friday. If students do not sign by this Friday, they will not be able to participate.
If you decided to split the registration fee into two payments, we will be extending the deadline for the second payment to April 21st. The second payment amount is $200. A reminder that the registration fee secures your spot for the 2023-2024 school year.
Teacher Changes for Next School Year
Great news! Anna Vogel has accepted the call and will be teaching grades K-2 full-time next school year.
We also extended a call to Timothy Zunker from Wisconsin to teach grades 3-4. We are communicating with him about Shepherd of the Hills and our outstanding school. Usually, a teacher takes around 3-4 weeks to decide.
Please keep everyone involved in your prayers. If you have any questions, please speak to Mr. Vogel.
