Message from Mr. Mitchell

With tomorrow being Veteran's Day, we want to thank all of our veterans, and specifically those with ties to Sherwood High School and the Sherwood community. We thank you for your service and all that you have done for our students, staff, and community. We are very fortunate to have great relationships with our military partners and appreciate their willingness to guide and mentor our students. I hope that everyone enjoys the weekend and takes time to honor those who deserve our special recognition.


Have a great weekend and Go Bowmen!

Mr. Mitchell

Fall Musical - Tuck Everlasting

What would you do if you had all eternity? Eleven-year-old Winnie Foster yearns for a life of adventure beyond her white picket fence, but not until she becomes unexpectedly entwined with the Tuck Family does she get more than she could have imagined. When Winnie learns of the magic behind the Tuck’s unending youth, she must fight to protect their secret from those who would do anything for a chance at eternal life. As her adventure unfolds, Winnie faces an extraordinary choice: return to her life, or continue with the Tucks on their infinite journey.

The performances are November 17th, 18th and 19th at 7:00pm at the SHS Performing Arts Center. Ticket prices are $12 for adults and $10 for students and senior citizens. Buy tickets on-line here: http://bowmentheatre.com/tickets/


AP Coordinator

Thank you to all who have paid their student's AP fees. I believe all our students have completed the required online registration.

If you have a student who is planning on NOT taking the AP exam in May, please let me know ASAP. AP imposes an additional S40 fee to any changes made after Nov 13. So, if your student decides to not take the exam I will be able to credit your account all but $40. Look for the email I sent with more detailed information.

Feel free to contact me with questions. Bfarwell@sherwood.k12.or.us

Sherwood Education Foundation's "Clicking 4 Kids" Campaign

The Sherwood Education Foundation (SEF) was formed to enrich and enhance the quality of education in the Sherwood School District by distributing grant funds to individual teachers, and by funding programs that support the District’s vision for educational excellence. Because of community support, in the last six years alone SEF has awarded 98 teacher grants totaling over $323,000. Whether it's Sensory Paths, Ozbot Evo Robots, Oregon Battle of the Books, kiln restoration or a PE equipment reboot for the High School, SEF is committed to and will continue to be there for our teachers and their students.


SEF's annual Clicking for Kids fundraiser campaign is now open and will run through November 30th, providing you an opportunity to help continue this incredible support for our Sherwood students and teachers. SEF’s continued success is only made possible with your support! 100% of your donation goes directly back to funding teacher grants at all grade levels.
