Principals Message


Hello, Iā€™m Heather Gore and I am honored to be the Shepherd Primary Principal. It is a pleasure to serve our community and contribute to a successful school year in every way possible. Every family in our school is very important as we create a school community that will prepare children to thrive in a "competitive and every changing society." We welcome your involvement and participation in our school. Working as partners with parents, we will educate your children and help them reach their full potential.


Shepherd Primary School provides a safe, nurturing and child centered environment in which our children can grow academically, socially, and emotionally. We have set Guidelines for Success that will help our students make good choices and reach their potential. Our Guidelines follow the M.A.T.E.S acronym.

                              M - MAKE GOOD CHOICES.

                              A - ALWAYS TRY YOUR BEST.

                              T - TREAT OTHERS WITH KINDNESS.  

                              E - ENCOURAGE EACH OTHER.

                              S - SPEAK THE TRUTH


Staff members are dedicated and committed to the success of every child. Our parents/guardians and volunteers, through their continued involvement, help provide the support and interaction that contributes to a wonderful partnership between home and school, benefiting the children of Shepherd Primary.  


I am so proud to be a part of this Shepherd Primary family. It is going to be a great year. Feel free to contact me anytime at 936-628-3302 EXT 2928 or by email at
