Archer Glen Elementary | Incoming Kinder Special Edition

Welcome New Kindergarten Families

Welcome to Archer Glen Elementary

Dear 2022-23 Kindergarten Families!

If you are a new family, I'd like to be the first to offer an official welcome to the Archer Glen community. If you are a returning family with a newly enrolled younger sibling, we are very happy to continue partnering with you to give your child the best educational experiences we can.

This special edition newsletter is to provide our new and returning families with the information you need to successfully start the school year with your soon-to-be Kindergarten student. You are always welcome to reach out by calling the Archer Glen front office at 503-825-5100 or, during the summer, email Sandi Emmert at slemmert@sherwood.k12.or.us.

Also, please feel free to share this newsletter with any families with a Kindergarten age child who may not have heard about Kindergarten registration. Thank you!

Patrick Shuckerow

Principal, Archer Glen Elementary
