Shepard Elementary PTA
Our PTA brings together parents and teachers who strive towards better education, communication, and community involvement. Just being a member helps you and your child feel more at home at Shepard. We welcome grandparents, parents, teachers, and other community members who wish to come together for our children, families, schools and communities.
Monster Mash Carnival and Silent Auction Fundraiser
Be sure to join the Shepard PTA for our Carnival and Silent Auction Fundraiser on October 20th from 5:30-8:30pm.
We will have vendors on site with Food for Purchase. The Bracelets are $25 and cover unlimited games, including the dunking booth, face painting, inflatables and all carnival games. Want to come have fun but not spend on a bracelet? We will have small bags of tickets for sale at $5 and $10.
Remember, this is the main fundraiser for PTA this year in lieu of asking kids to sell wrapping paper, etc. All proceeds go directly back to YOUR kids at Shepard. The funds we raise help us pay for:
- grade level bus fare and field trips throughout the year
- for High Touch High Tech Science to come in and do experiments in every grade level
- for events such as the Sock Hop and End of the Year Picnic
- for much needed supplies in classrooms and Stream lab
- for Field Day and Field Day t-shirts
- for showering our teachers and staff with meals and treats throughout the year
AND MUCH MORE...
(feel free to email email@example.com if you have questions)
Be Sure to Wear Your Costumes and we'll see you at the Monster Mash!
