Principal's Note: First Day of School

We are SO excited to officially welcome our students back to Sherwood on Monday! It was wonderful to see so many smiling faces walking our halls and out on our playgrounds at our Teacher Meet & Greet. Thank you to our PTO for providing popsicles! Yum!

Kindergarten - third graders, should look for their teacher near each grade level assigned door (pictures below). Fourth and fifth graders, will look for their teacher on the blacktop with the basketball hoops. All teachers will be holding bright signs to identify themselves. We will have all hands on deck, therefore, please feel free to ask questions of anyone wearing a Sherwood shirt.

We hope everyone enjoys this beautiful weekend and we can't wait to see our students on Monday!!!
