The talent show is coming up really fast here at Shepherd and this year we have many talented students! We have a variety of awesome acts ranging from whistling to singing to acting to jump roping. Students are quite nervous about this Thursday's shows. The drama class will be doing skits for the show and Mr. Bradley is very proud of the skits that they have written. Not only are there actors but there are also some amazing singers with a variety of beautiful voices! There are even some other acts like dancing, whistling, and even jump roping! I got to interview Kaiden from third grade who will be whistling for the talent show. Here is what he said.
Interviewer: are you going to be whistling for the talent show?
Interviewer: are you nervous about it?
Interviewer: are you excited to be on stage?
Interviewer: who's going to be there to watch you?
Kaiden: my grandma and my aunt Nicki
Interviewer: and finally are you excited to see the other acts?
As you can tell from this interview many people will be nervous for the talent show. However Jesus gave these children these talents so that they may shine for him. So come watch the talent show. It'll be fun!

A shadowy, mysterious, and giggly figure is looming in the distance here at Shepherd. Is it a ghost? Is it a vampire? Is it an ostrich with bad eating habits? No! It’s the Talent Show.
On the sixteenth of this month, students and their friends will gather in the gymnasium to show off their talents. Several piano pieces have been entered as well as some skits and a host of other acts (unfortunately the No-Homework-For-The-Rest-Of-The-Year act, which students were hoping the middle school teachers might do despite said teachers’ lack of knowledge pertaining to said act, did not make it to the Talent Show).
Regardless, this year’s Talent Show is sure to be a baaaa-ing success. I, A. Nonny Mous, snuck around the school building yesterday disguised as a rabid brick and found students everywhere brushing up on and adding final details to their performances. Each act that I saw was more disguise-ruining than the next, so I had to be careful (my disguise started running when I laughed till I cried in the drama department). But these acts are secret until the performance, so if you want to learn more, you’ll have to come on Thursday the 16th. Performances are at 2:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. We’ll see you there!

Tis the months of B’s and P’s, which are otherwise known as birthdays and parties!!! How many people are born in January and February?!?!? Phew!!! To start off with, I’m sure we all had fun celebrating the New Year. Party Number One! Then, we had quite a few birthdays!! Mr. Poppe, Clark, Jaina, and Chance all celebrated their birthdays in January. (There are probably several that I’m missing, too!!) Let’s see, that’s now four birthdays. Next, we have February, which includes at least two birthdays (if not more), and St. Valentine’s Day classroom parties!! That’s now three celebrations!! (Four if you count the talent show!). Okay, now you get to do the math. One plus four plus four equals at least nine birthdays and parties!! Oh, and the Super Bowl!! Now that’s ten!! Carrots and pineapples, that’s a lot!
Oh yeah, one more P thing – paste. This mania of the copy, paste, and cut game is slowly but surely taking over the middle school!! You can hear very odd conversations if you listen in on people’s lunch talks!!! Watch what you say, Middle Schoolers. You never know when someone will decide to pop out and yell, “COPY!”, and then you’re stuck! I hope, however that this does not happen too often to middle schoolers, and that everyone has a fantabulous week!!
