Beth Embry and Team – I just wanted to personally thank you for the hard work you and your team put into Parent’s Weekend and everything provided at Shepherds Hill Academy (SHA).
The personal touch that SHA extends is so valuable too. From the cakes to your name cards at the tables – it’s the old fashioned home-made touch that makes a big difference.
I sincerely hope that as SHA grows, you retain that non-corporate, down-to-earth style. The staff, methodologies, and little touches really make SHA stand out WAAAAAY above and beyond any of the other schools I researched. Don’t forget, you have an enthusiastic group of past, present, and future parents out there who will be more than willing to organize a Parent Volunteer group to help SHA retain it’s individuality as you expand in the future. We would all like to help because what you and Trace have started, is really superb and original.
Also – side note – I hope you and Trace and the team are considering a nice pine tree line along the highway there for coverage year around. I’m sure that steep grade will qualify for land erosion risk and you can get free trees from the state and additional tax write-offs potentially. I’m sure you guys have a plan. But again, this is something Parents could get a committee working on also if not.
We’re here to help and we love you all very much! LOL and I still chuckle when I think back on you speeding around in the golf cart with Gramps and the dog in the back! Thank you so much! You’re amazing 🙂
