Durham County Teen Court is training teens (ages 10 -17) to run a justice program that is run by teens for teens. "In teen court, teen volunteers perform the roles of the prosecuting and defense attorneys, bailiff, clerk and jury. The Judge is the only adult directly involved in the court proceedings."

This is an excellent opportunity for students to gain volunteer experience AND looks good on college applications.

The official Teen Court flyer is housed in the Shepard Student Services Department😀
You can also contact me at Shepard. My son did the training for teen court and it is a great experience.

Children learn more and have better lives when parents, school staff, students and the community work together.

Shepard PTA wants to bring these groups together to come up with ideas about programs and activities that will benefit our children, their families and our community.

Operating as usual

We ended the week with a walking Taco lunch. It didn’t quite go as planned but I think the teachers enjoyed it.

Thank You Shepard Teachers and Staff for all you do!!!!
