Calling all parents! We are looking for parents who are looking for a way to get involved with their child's class. Consider being a room rep! 
This coming year we have made the task even more simple by developing tools and templates! 

Responsibilities include:
  • Organizing fall and winter parties
  • Planning class gifts for our wonderful teachers
SIGNUP HERE  for your teacher and reach out to me with questions!
1st Grade Families:

As you are out shopping for school supplies, also please pick up a "Fun Folder". This can be any folder that shows your child's interests - puppies, LEGO's, Star Wars, My Little Pony, etc. We use them during reading groups, and it's great to see all of the different folders.

It is not on the supply list because we didn't think it would work with SchoolKits.

Please label your child's folder when you send it in with supplies....and spread the word to other 1st grade families! Thank you!! 
We are excited for another great year in first grade! Text Link

Sherwood presents 
ANNIE KIDS! 
Once again, Sherwood will be teaming up with Performing Arts, Inc. to allow all students to perform on stage. 

With the overall increased interest in theater at Sherwood, we have decided to split it into two separate performances this year. 

We will kick off the year with grades 4th - 6th ONLY performing the classic, Annie. 
 
We will follow up with Grades K - 3rd later this year for an early spring performance of 101 Dalmatians!
 
Be on the look out for signups in the next few weeks for the 4th-6th grade show!  We will also have a table at the Back to School Bash, so please stop by and see us!
