Dear Parents and Guardians,
Greetings and welcome to
November. We are just about finished with the first trimester of the
school year, and the cold weather is just around the corner. It has been
a busy time at Sherwood, and November will be no different.
are in the throes of our house system, and this month we will have our
next House activity; this will take place during the days leading up to
the Thanksgiving holiday. We will also host our 5th grade Sports Night,
and this year, the students will be competing in events with their
housemates. They will not only compete for the Sherwood Cup, but will
also be rewarded with house points that will benefit all students in
their house in grades 2-4 as well! This is truly a Win-Win for all.
month our PTA is bringing an author to Sherwood! Charles Smith, Jr. is
the author of I Am America, Rimshots, and Twelve Rounds to Glory: The
Story of Muhammad Ali, an award winning picture book. Mr. Smith was also
a competitor on American Ninja Warrior. We are excited to host him to
share his story.
Additionally, this month, our second
graders will be visiting Brookhaven National Lab; this visit will
provide additional hands-on activities for our students to show them
some real world applications that further support our STEM instruction
and Amplify Science Program.
Our Annual Night of Giving
will take place on November 20; this is a great event for our students
to see the importance of helping others. This year we are collecting
items by house; please see the items each house is responsible to bring
in the November edition of the school newsletter, linked in the sidebar
of this page.
Lastly, some reminders:
Superintendent's Conference Day; November 5
Make-Up Photos; November 8
