The Sherwood Scoop

Sherwood Elementary November 2021

Information for Parents & Families

  • Great job arriving on time in class by 7:20am! Ask your students about the stuffed eagle who is being passed to the grade level class with the best attendance (absences & tardies). Thank you to Ms. Sharp for donating eagles for this positive, motivational effort. Getting our students to school and on time helps support your child's education and our teachers appreciate it. Thank you!
  • If you would like your child to eat breakfast at school, please have them arrive by 7:00am so that they have time to eat and be in class by 7:20am.
  • Progress Reports will be sent home on Monday, November 29th when we return from the Thanksgiving Break. If you have questions about this, please contact your child's teacher.

Thankful November

Instead of celebrating our fabulous support staff during the school year at various dates throughout the year, we decided it would be easier to focus on them twice in the school year instead. One week in November (Thankful November) and one week in February (Kindness Week). November 15-19 will be our Thankful November. Each grade level will have a support personnel to celebrate. We would not be able to be a successful campus without all of our SWE staff and we want to show them just how much we appreciate them! 😊 Thanks everyone!!!

Choice Schools Application

The choice schools application opens on November 15th. If you know a family who is interested in enrolling their child in a Pre-K or Kindergarten Two-Way Dual Language class, please share this link: https://www.springbranchisd.com/studentsfamilies/choice-program/about-the-choice-program-process/list-of-choice-programs. SWE will not be accepting late entry students to the program (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th), unless the student has previously been in a Two-Way Dual Language program elsewhere. As a reminder, transfers are not allowed between the other SBISD elementary schools with a two-way program (Pine Shadows or Cedar Brook) after students have started the program at SWE. If you or someone you know is interested and would like more information, please contact sarah.salas@springbranchisd.com.

SWE will be hosting interested parents on the following dates:

December 2 5:30-6:30pm

December 3 8:30-9:30am

January 6 8:30-9:30 & 5:30-6:30

Spring Branch Education Foundation Parent Advisory Council

Spring Branch Education Foundation is committed to serving all the children of Spring Branch ISD, and to help us ensure we are hearing the needs of families throughout our district,

we are creating a Parent Advisory Council, with parent representatives from each Middle School feeder pattern or school community. These parents would be invited to attend our Parent Advisory Council meetings every other month to offer their insight on our programs and provide suggestions as to needs in their communities.

To make the process accessible for all families in our district, we would like to give parents a couple of options:

1) Parents can return the forms to Sherwood and then the school will forward them to SBEF through district mail.

2) The parent can complete the form and email it to Brook Kato, in the SBEF office OR

3) They can complete the form online. The link for the online form and Brooke’s email is in the parent letter that is attached.

Our deadline for applications is December 1, 2021.

We look forward to bringing parents into the foundation so we can better serve our schools and our families.
