Forest Hills Council of PTAs and PTOs is thrilled to offer a complimentary showing of "Screenagers" to the parents and students of our schools on Feb. 20 at 6:30 p.m. in Nagel Middle School's cafetorium. Studies are showing an undeniable link between the increased use of devices and the decline in mental health among young people; the subject of screen time is a tough topic but a very important one.
To reserve your seat, visit http://bit.ly/ScreenagersFeb20.
While all are welcome, the content of the film is intended students in 6th-grade and beyond. Due to contract stipulations, an additional screening or a link to the film is not possible; our apologies in advance. Questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ve had a great first week of Penny Wars as we support families in our community this holiday season for 9United’s Shop & Share event.
Just a reminder, pennies are positive points for each grade, where all silver coins and dollar bills are negative points.
A fun and healthy competition for our students! Which grade will take home the bragging rights this year? Collections will continue through Tuesday, December 5.
Sherwood is proud to support this project as we “help take care of others” with a focus on giving, in whatever way you can.
Additional Ways to get involved today:
Questions about 9United and this project can be directed to the organization’s founders, Amy Miller or Jen Schlosser.
Have specific questions about Sherwood’s involvement & want to get more involved in this great cause, contact Sherwood parent, Stacy Gillard.

Olympic Day is still on, but mother nature demanded the date be changed, twice.
Sixth graders will be participating in Olympic Day on Monday, May 22 from approximately 9:30 - 1:00.
All 6th Grade students from all Forest Hills school will come together to compete in various sporting events. The event will be held at Anderson High School. Due to construction, parking is very limited and all volunteers will be shuttled to the school from Nagel. We need 20 volunteers to help run the event. Please sign up below if you can help - all roles are needed for the entire timeframe. Volunteers will leave Nagel via shuttle at 8:40 or 9:00 or you can be dropped off at AHS.
When signing up, please comment if you cannot be on the early shuttle so I will assign you a role that leaves at 9:00. You will be shuttled back to your car after. All volunteers will be assigned a specific role such as Group Leader, Event Tallier, water table, Event overseer, etc. and will be provided instructions before the event. If volunteers become full, other parents are welcome to come to watch as spectators.
We are also in need of volunteers to run a special lunch back at school after the Olympics. This involves picking up the subs from Jersey Mikes, setting up and serving the lunch to the kids. In addition, we need parents to sign up to bring some side items for the lunch.
You can sign up to volunteer HERE.
Questions? Please contact Emily Sandul.
Hard copies should arrive at homes the week of May 8.
