Dear Parents and Guardians,
We hope that you have had a great beginning of the school year. The
daylight is getting a little shorter each day, but we hope that the mild
weather will hold out as long as possible. Either way, the school year
is underway at Sherwood Elementary School.
This year, we will continue on our journey to teach the students The
Seven Habits of Happy Kids, help them to develop positive routines, and
get the boys and girls on their way to be effective lifelong learners.
This will be accomplished by monthly lessons facilitated by myself and
Ms. Tramaglini, our school social worker, as well as through read-alouds
and other lessons in the classroom.
Our teachers realize the importance of relationship-building, and the
first weeks of school are all about developing a sense of community with
their new students and with the students' parents/guardians. We hope
that you were able to join us at Meet the Teacher Night to forge these
relationships with your child's teacher.
Finally, we are looking for everyone to support our wonderful SES PTA
and SEPTA. These organizations do an amazing job supporting our students
and provide them with programs, assemblies, and other activities
throughout the year. Additionally, they support our classroom learning
as well. Please visit the Sherwood Elementary School eBoard for links to
contact these organizations for more information.
We are looking forward to a wonderful 2018-2019 school year. If you have
any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the Sherwood
Main Office at 631-650-8650.
