11/13  Marilyn Kaufman's College Planning

11/15  Reflections entries are due

11/18  Parent Program – Teenager emotional health 

11/18-22 Teacher Appreciation Drive  







By: Marilyn Kaufman


November 13 6:30-7:30 PM


Come learn the twelve strengths and experiences that colleges look for in their applicants. Learn the secrets and strategies of students who have successfully navigated this complex college process from an expert who has reviewed thousands of applications for freshman enrollment at SMU and UCLA. Uncover practical ways that students can be distinguished from a plethora of bright, talented, and exceptional high school seniors. And most importantly, learn how to avoid yelling, nagging, eye-rolling, and sarcasm when you remind your child of the importance of making good grades.


Parents and students are encouraged to attend this must see program on Wednesday, November 13th at 6:30 PM in the Shepton High School Presentation Room, sponsored by the Shepton Parents and Teachers Association. Prepare to be enlightened on how to get into college by Marilyn Kaufman, M.Ed., a certified college consultant, President of College Admission Consultants, a private, personalized approach to college counseling, one of twenty-five college counselors who serves on The Princeton Review’s National College Counselor Advisory Board, and the parent of a Shepton alumni. Preparing for college does not have to be stressful or filled with angst; it can be a positive and extraordinary opportunity for young adults to gain self-awareness and responsibility while developing
self-motivation and strong communication skills. Timelines will be provided of when and what necessary steps can be taken to enhance an applicant’s admission for college and how to find the right fit and be able to afford it! This program is as much for students as it is for parents, as the key to being accepted to college is self-awareness, self-motivation, self-discipline, and taking personal responsibility for one’s future.

Be A Shepton Volunteer!


As our children get older in school, it seems that the school doesn’t need as much help as they used to.  Actually they still need us, just in different ways.  Do you have an hour once a month, once every 3 or 4 months, once a year?  We have volunteer opportunities that fit all of these needs and more. Sign up to help in a variety of ways by checking your preferences on our PTSA Toolkit or sign up to be “Ready to Help” when the opportunity arises.  You may also contact with any questions. 


IMPORTANT:  You must be a cleared volunteer to volunteer at the school.

Be sure to complete your PISD Volunteer Application for 2019-2020 after July 1.


Renewals must be done annually.
