SHS Weekly Newsletter #33
Now that May has begun, so have a large amount of fun and enjoyable events at the High School. We are excited to host our Prom tomorrow evening, our first off-campus dance in three years! Additionally, we will be hosting our new Spring Fest next Friday, May 13, in our stadium from 6:00-8:30pm. After that, we will begin on the numerous events around our seniors coming to the end of their K-12 careers, culminating in Graduation on Friday, June 10th. After that, our last day for all students is Friday, June 17th, with students being released at 12:20pm that day. We are so excited to celebrate a great year over the next six weeks!
We would also like to thank our community for responding to our plea for safer driving on Sunset Blvd. before and after school. Both schools on Sunset have noticed an increase in the amount of safe driving near their schools and appreciate it very much. Thank you all again for responding proactively to that important safety request!
Have a great weekend, and Go Bowmen!

Sherwood Spring Fest
Hello Sherwood community members! Sherwood High School is very excited to announce our first annual Spring Fest! Spring Fest is a carnival-style event happening at the Sherwood High School main stadium field on May 13th from 6-8:30 pm. There will be games, food, a talent show, raffle baskets, and attractions. All event booths will be set up on the turf field, not the track itself. All Sherwood community members are invited to attend this event. While admission is free, game tickets and food will be available for purchase. More information will be released soon, and a presale for game tickets will be available for sale online starting next week. Spring fest is a fundraising event; all the money raised will go towards SHS clubs, sports, and Sherwood organizations.
We want to give back to our community and be as inclusive as possible by having free admission, but we need your help! If you are able to support, below is a PayPal link to donate directly. Your generous donations will go towards event vendors, prizes, decorations, and more! This is our first year hosting Spring Fest, and your generosity will help us kick start a new community tradition!
Thank you for your generosity and support, as this event is made possible through Sherwood community members like you!
