Sherwood Updates

Hello Sherwood Families,

It was a week full of rainstorms, saliva testing, smiling students, lots of learning, picture day, and an incredible PTO-sponsored assembly!

We hope to see many Sherwood families at the annual FUNd Run on Saturday, October 2nd. There is more information below about this wonderful community event. Hope to see you there!

Please be on the look out for an envelope in your child's backpack today. This envelope will contain your child's fall MAP scores and more information about the test.

Thank you for another amazing week at Sherwood. We cannot wait to see you all next week!

Panda Pride,

Rachel & Kevin

Thank you to our amazing PTO for bringing Matt Wilhelm to Sherwood! Our pandas were thrilled and in awe of his stunts and tricks! They were equally taken in by his message of empathy, kindness, and perseverance.
