COLLEGE PRESENTATION POSTPONED
 
 
 
Unfortunately, after conferring again with the Campus and District Administration, the Lee Dee Sachs College Presentation has been POSTPONED at this time.
We are looking forward to rescheduling this event in the Spring where we can receive some expert guidance that will be directly beneficial to our Sophomores as they begin planning for the important Junior year of high school.
 
For the time being, we are fortunate to be able to provide some resources for you to start the college discussion with your student.

A Texas PTA Life Member Award is a high honor bestowed upon an individual who has made a worthwhile contribution to the well-being of children and youth. He or she (while usually a member of the PTA) does not have to be a member of the PTA, nor must the service for this honor being bestowed be connected with PTA.

 
Texas PTA Extended Service Award is the highest honor that can be presented to an individual who has been actively involved in the Texas PTA for at least 10 years and has previously been honored with the Texas PTA Life Member Award noted above. 
 
To nominate a Shepton parent, teacher, or staff member, please complete this form.
 
Completed forms should be submitted by Tuesday, December 1 to Kara Grimes, VP of Membership Shepton PTSA, at membership@sheptonptsa.org.

 

 

 


 

 

Grant Halliburton Foundation was established in 2006 in memory of Grant Halliburton, a Dallas teen who battled depression and bipolar disorder for several years before his suicide death at the age of 19.

Grant Halliburton Foundation offers a variety of programs, presentations, and an annual conference on mental wellness, suicide prevention, bullying, resilience, and other issues impacting youth mental health.

Shepton PTSA would like to offer these virtual presentations to your family.  The links are available for your viewing for 30 days.  We hope you will watch these together as a family and that this will start some important conversations.
