Coming Up at Sherwood:

6th graders participating in Relay for Life and raising money for the American Cancer Society. 

 
On Friday, April 26th, Our 6th graders will be participating in Relay for Life.  Relay for Life is an event in which we celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that has taken too much.  This year the Sherwood 6th grade team has a goal to raise $10,000 for the American Cancer Society and they are asking for your support.  There are many ways your can support the Sherwood 6th graders.


  1. Visit the team website and make a donation to your favorite 6th grader or a general donation to the team.  http://main.acsevents.org/site/TR?fr_id=90719&pg=team&team_id=2437617
  2. Join us on Thursday, April 11th at 6:30pm in the gym for the Annual 6th grade talent show.  All students and families are invited to attend to see just how talented our 6th graders students are!  6th graders will be selling items at this event.  All proceeds go toward Relay for Life.
  3. We hope many cancer survivors will join us so we can honor and recognize them.  If you are a cancer survivor, or know one, please RSVP for the celebration ceremony and dinner that will take place at 6pm at Nagel Middle School on Friday, April 26th.   For more information and to RSVP visit: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0a4fabaf2da1f85-relay
  4. The night ends with the luminaria ceremony. Purchase a luminaria that will line the track during Relay for life.  Order forms will come home next week.
