Dear Sherwood Families,
Thank to all of our families for joining us for Movie Night last week! It was wonderful to see our families together while our students enjoyed the park, candy, popcorn, boba, pizza and of course the movie! Thank you to our PTO once again for organizing such an amazing family friendly event for our community. We appreciate your generosity and support of this free experience.
Griffin's Tale visited Sherwood today! The Children's Repertory Theatre Company from Northwestern takes stories and poems written by OUR students and turns them into skits, sketches, songs, raps dances and more! Thank you to our 112 Educational Foundation for making this opportunity possible for our students and staff!
We hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend!
Rachel & Kevin
It's time to celebrate and recognize our Panda SuperSTARS this week!
