Last night BESD53 held our "Kindergarten Roundup"! We had Kindergarten teachers from every building meet the incoming students and did a quick screener to help ensure the best placement for them. Information was also handed out on kindergarten readiness, and a fun photo op for our future BESD53 Tigers! Thank you to all who came and the staff who helped make this a success!

Along with the Ace Program for students at Shepard, we have the Super Staff program for staff members."Super Staff" is a staff member who always goes above and beyond, maybe lending a helping hand, or just bringing a positive to your day. Once nominated, they enjoy the bonus of having their class covered by the administration and can choose to take our, Staff Only, hovercarts for a spin. Why should only the students have fun, right? Say hello to our “Super Staff” member Mrs. Mosier, along with her TA Mrs. Skanburg. Thank you Mrs. Mosier for all you do for our staff and students. We appreciate you!
