As the holidays approach, we want you to know how thankful we are at Sherwood Heights Elementary School on a daily basis. We work, learn, and grow in a beautiful school filled with amazing students, teachers, support staff, and principal. One of the practices we have been employing in the building is to develop positive, supportive, and loving relationships with our school family. Words of encouragement and love, coupled with smiles and laughter greet each and every child as they enter our building to get their day started. As students walk through their own classroom door, their teachers give each a reassuring and warm welcome setting the tone for a wonderful Sherwood day!
A special thank you goes out to our community for supporting us with their finances and friendship. Sherwood has been the recipient of a number of grants this fall. Wow, Pendleton Foundation Trust you bless our hearts! $11,168.97 to purchase 30 Chromebooks and 3 charging station carts. Wildhorse Foundation accepted our grant for Cycling our Way to Higher Achievement for $7,500 to purchase commercial grade student sized stationary bikes for use in our "learning corrals." Students will be encouraged to take 5 - 10 minutes to get their wiggles out, while reading and exercising. A shout out goes to Altrusa for their generous donation of $288.00 for iReady Reading Intervention materials for the 5th grade and for $600.00 for Raz Kids (a computer program) licenses for several primary-aged classrooms. It is so special to live, play, and work in such a generous community.
