Dear Parents and Guardians,
As we come to the end of the school year, it is important for all of us
to look back and reflect on all of the successes of this past year.
Whether that success was in the classroom, on stage, or anywhere else,
it is necessary to think about how much we have grown and changed.
This last month of school is a busy one here at Sherwood. Please be
mindful of our upcoming dates. Fourth graders will be taking the New
York State science assessment on June 5; our final band/orchestra
concert of the year will be held on June 8 in the Islip Middle School
auditorium at 7 p.m.; we will have a Flag Day celebration on June 14 at 9
a.m.; and Field Day is scheduled for June 15.
To our fifth graders, we wish you well as you end your elementary school
years and become middle schoolers! This month, our fifth graders will
be celebrating with a Yearbook breakfast and BBQ at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.
respectively on June 12. Also, please do not miss our 5th Grade
Moving-Up Ceremony on June 20 at 1 p.m. We hope to see you there.
Included in this newsletter is some information about websites students
can access over the summer for enrichment. We also encourage all of the
students to keep learning...whether it is while on a car trip, sitting
on the beach and relaxing, or simply sitting around the house, students
should try to read as much as possible - reading is thinking and
This has been a great first year for me at Sherwood, and I am excited to
continue working with the Sherwood family again next year. I wish you
and yours a safe, productive, and restful summer. We will see you in
