Dear Parents and Guardians,
Greetings! I hope everyone had a restful and relaxing spring break, and
that everyone enjoyed the holidays with family and loved ones. It has
been a busy month, and as hard as it is to believe, we are coming down
to the home stretch of the school year.
First, we would like to thank the PTA for all of their hard work this
past month in organizing our Earth Day activities. Students had the
opportunity to plant seeds in recycled egg cartons, and bring them home
to watch them grow. The PTA also put together the Sherwood Talent Show.
It was great to see all of the students exhibiting their various
talents on stage in front of the community! Special thanks to our PTA
President, Ms. Sanders, the Talent Show chair, Ms. De Lapi, and Ms.
Breslin who helped out preparing the music, and all of the other parent
volunteers. Also, thank you to Ms. Markee for helping out during the
show as well. Great job by all!
May is going to be a busy time! The month begins with NYS mathematics
assessments May 2-4. On May 9, we will be celebrating our friend and
colleague Maureen Bodkin with the dedication of a plaque; we hope you
can join us for this fitting tribute. On May 11, we will have the first
of our two spring concerts at 7:00 pm in the Islip Middle School
auditorium; we hope you can join us to hear the amazing music groups
Please remember that due to the use of snow days, school will be in session on May 25 and 26. Wishing everyone a great month.
See you in June!
Sherwood Elementary School Principal
