Have you seen this STICKER?

This year at Sherwood we are rolling our new building-wide leadership and behavior expectations called SHINE. Each month we will be talking with students about one power word that encompasses a skill we would like to see students displaying during the school day. This month's word is SYNERGY. To show synergy we expect students to be able to STOP, COLLABORATE and LISTEN. Ask your student about what this word means to them and be sure to praise them at home if you see them with a SHINE sticker. Watch for more information in the coming months about the remaining words and definitions!

Attendance Reminders

Can you believe we are at the middle of the first quarter!?!?!


Many families are doing a wonderful job getting students to school on time each day. Thank you for your support in making this happen. Again this year we will be celebrating student attendance quarterly. All students with 95% attendance or better will receive an award and recognition. In order for your child to receive their award, they need to be at school each day, on time, and not leave early. We understand that students may have appointments or illness that is out of their control. Please send documentation to the main office or nurse when this occurs. In the rare situation that a child's attendance percentage becomes extremely low, we will utilize the support of our District Attendance Officer and/or other agencies.


We will be sending out mid-quarter attendance letters to families next week. Please make it a priority to teach your child good attendance habits starting now so that they can reach their full potential. If you have questions about your child's attendance, contact the main office at 417-523-3800.
