Sherwood Updates

Hello Sherwood Families,


We would like to put a spotlight on our incredible community after the outpouring of generosity we witnessed this week.


As of Thursday afternoon Sherwood had collected 24 bags of rice for the 2021 Day of Giving. There were notices sent out by staff, administration, and our PTO that we had one more day to hit our goal of 100 bags. This afternoon we had collected over 225 bags of rice! Thank you all so much for your kindness and giving spirit. We are so proud to be a part of the Sherwood community.


We would also like to thank our PTO for organizing Sherwood's participation in the Day of Giving and giving us all the opportunity to support families nearby.


Panda Pride,

Rachel & Kevin

The Panda Project (New Student Club)

We are so excited to announce the formation of a new club at Sherwood, The Panda Project. The mission of this club is to spread kindness and positivity throughout the Sherwood community. Each month students will design themed kindness projects that will ripple throughout Sherwood.


If your child is interested in joining The Panda Project, please fill out THIS FORM by December 8th. We will host two groups of students: Kinder - 2nd grade and 3rd - 5th grade.


Due to continued Covid mitigation efforts, we are able to have 25 students in each group. If participation exceeds 25 students per group, we will facilitate a lottery. Meetings will be held before school every other week on Tuesdays from 8:00-8:30 am. Parents will need to provide transportation. If you have any questions, please email lsachs@nssd112.org or mott@nssd112.org.

Student Covid Vaccine Cards

As a reminder, per current guidance, fully vaccinated individuals who remain asymptomatic will not be required to quarantine in the event of an exposure. For those who are participating in SHIELD testing, once an individual is fully vaccinated, they will be removed from SHIELD testing. Guidance indicates that fully vaccinated individuals are those that are two weeks post second vaccine.


If your child is vaccinated, please share their vaccination card with Nurse Gina (gvalerugo@nssd112.org) for our records. This will help us in the event that contact tracing is necessary.

MAP Testing 12/7 - 12/8

NWEA MAP testing begins next week. We strive to provide our students with the utmost opportunity to do their best. It is important for students to get a good night's sleep, have a healthy breakfast, and to arrive on time to school. Thank you!


The schedule for testing next week is as follows:


  • Tuesday: K-5 MAP Reading
  • Wednesday: K-5 MAP Math
  • Thursday: K-5 MAP Makeups
  • Friday: K-5 MAP Makeups


Your continued support and partnership is greatly appreciated!
