Thanks to all of you that ate at Chipotle on Wednesday night. It was a huge success. The folks at Chipotle said they were very busy and the school had great spirit. Thanks again for supporting our kids here at Shepherd.


What is Grandparents' Day?

Grandparents' Day is coming in two weeks on Thursday, Oct. 19th.  This is a tradition at Shepherd that goes back several years.  Students may invite their grandparents or someone else special in their lives to enjoy a production from the Columbus Childrens' Theater.  This year's show will be The Three Little Pigs and will be staged in the sanctuary.  Doors open at 9:30 and the show starts at 9:45.  After the performance many families choose to go out to lunch and then to an afternoon activity of their choice.  Students withdrawn early will not be counted absent.  Students remaining in school will enjoy activities with the teachers.


BOOK IT! Reading Program is Back!

We are excited to hold a BOOK IT! contest once again this year.  Winning classes will celebrate with a huge pizza party at lunch.  Our goal is 100% of the kids get to the party.  Happy reading!




Box Tops



The competition is on!   We are collecting Boxtops from now until the end of October.  Winning classrooms will win an awesome lunch time party and kickball game. Bring in the Boxtops and help us earn free supplies for our school. The last day for donations is October 27th.


Volunteers Needed

 

We need two parent volunteers to help with school pictures. One volunteer is needed on Tuesday at SCS, and on Wednesday at LLCC.  You will need to arrive at school by 7:45 and assist the photographers through the morning.  You will be bringing classes to the shoot and helping students to look their best.  Volunteers will get $20 HR Imaging voucher towards a picture package.  Please let the office know if you are interested ASAP.





This Week in Chapel



This week in chapel Pastor Ashley brought the students a great lesson about the importance of obeying the Lord when he asks us to going the extra mile.  It is easy to think hard work is someone else's job, but the Bible was the very first book that talked about having grit.  Jesus taught is someone asks you to go one mile, then you should go two without complaint.  In practical terms for all of us, we need to give that extra effort whether it is in the home, in the classroom or witnessing to others.  Have a conversation with your kids about what going the extra mile means to them.
