Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We have come to the end of another school year at Sherwood. This year was successful on many fronts. We had a greater focus on social emotional learning through our 7 Habits of Happy Kids initiative; we focused on overall student wellness by hosting our first ever Wellness Week; and we also continued to show students the importance of giving back through our food drives and other fundraising events. We hope that the students are all better citizens as a result.

This year, the students were also able to venture outside of the walls of Sherwood and visit different places such as: Suffolk County Police Headquarters, Brookhaven National Lab, the Engeman Theater in Northport and many other great destinations.

The year isn't over quite yet though. June brings many different events. Field Day will be held on June 5 (rain date, June 12). We invite parents to come enjoy the track events on this fun day. We also are hosting our Sherwood Spring Concert on June 11; this will be held at 7:00 pm in the Islip Middle School Auditorium. We also have several more trips and grade level events happening this month; please see the "Dates to Remember" section in our school newsletter for more information.

The Islip Public Library will also be visiting Sherwood on June 17 to share information about their awesome Summer Reading program. We hope that you can get your child to read this summer, and the Public Library is a great place to make that happen with all of their resources. Please check out the link provided here for more information.

We had a great time teaching the students this year, and the best part is that we get to do it all over again in the fall. We wish all of the members of the Sherwood family a safe, healthy, and restful summer.

See you soon!

Warmest Regards,
Chad Walerstein
