Dear Parents,


Welcome to the 2016-17 school year at Shepard Elementary. I am honored to be the proud principal of Shepard and excited about starting in August with the staff. The teachers returned on August 11 and began their professional learning journey. I am proud of their collaboration and efforts to prepare for our students.


We were fortunate to receive funding for a new roof for Shepard. They have been hard at work all summer. We are on schedule, but they will be continuing their work during the next few months. I am working closely with facilities. They will not be working during school hours.


Our theme this year is the quote by Dr. Seuss, “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” We are using it in a variety of ways to communicate to our students that their potential and options are endless. The teachers have embraced it and the building is becoming very “Seussical”.


As always, I appreciate you support and look forward to a wonderful year!


Principal Lancaster
