Principal's Message



    WE at Overby-Sheppard Elementary School are exceptionally Thankful for the generosity of our Students & Parents. This Year has been phenomenal in every aspect thus far. We have just ended a very successful "Pennies for Patients" Campaign, organized by our Counseling Department, where students collected and donated pennies to help stop Cancer & help those that are living with the challenge. Our students & parents have done a phenomenal job! We have also concluded our "Can Drive" to help families in need during the holidays. We were able to completely supply full Thanksgiving Dinners for 12 families. Mrs. Dunn spearheaded this effort & thanks everyone for their support! Overby-Sheppard is divided up into Families. Each family demonstrates the meaning and attributes of their Families Name. The Compassion Family & its attributes have been featured this Thanksgiving Season. I am so proud of them. Don't Forget that "Thanksgiving Break" begins this week Wednesday November 22nd, 2017. We return Monday, November 27th, 2017.

    We are excited about all the great new initiatives, partnerships & opportunities for our students. As a community of learners with high expectations, we will continue and enhance the following programs:

    - PBIS: Our monthly character traits and Positive Behavior Intervention Supports
    (PBIS) program will support the Community of Caring, being formally introduced
    this year.
    - Uniforms: Students are encouraged to wear their uniforms on even days. Staff members will continue to wear uniforms, as well.
    - Tune-In Tuesday Folders: will be sent home each week with important home-school communication and student work. A grade-level newsletter will be sent home bi-weekly to inform you of objectives and upcoming events. Student work will be sent home for your review and signature.
    - Parent Honor Roll: You are encouraged to earn points and recognition for your support as a Parent Honor Roll recipient.

    I believe "Together, We Can & We Will Succeed!"
