Sherwood PTA invites you to a free evening out of the house, playing games with your family and friends of all ages.  

We have classic games, games you've never played, and GIANT sized games.  All games are quick to pick up and play, have simplified instructions, and can be played at your own pace.  

New games this year include Catch Phrase, Connect 4, Giant Candyland , Giant Left Center Right, and many unique games on loan from Hobby Pop.   
We'll also have an all new Family Feud game with answers supplied by current 3-6 graders.  

This is a food-free event. 
Hobby Pop owner, Bethaney Becker, will be available to explain new games and some games will be available for purchase. 

If you have any games to share, especially giant sized games, please message Kelley at .

Please RSVP here:

Box Tops!!!

I will be collecting Box Tops until the 3rd week of October. 

Please send them in a ziplock baggie with your grade level/teacher name. There are white bins located in each grade level area, with a box top label on it.
I must have all box tops sent (postmarked) by October 31st. 

The grade level with the most box tops will earn a special pajama day!

Keep clipping, and continue sending them in! Pay close attention to expiration dates, it is a daunting task to sort through them. (And count them!!!)

Every box top counts! Thank you for your participation!
