The Sherwood Back to School Bash is on Thursday, August 31. It's the Sherwood community's chance to welcome the school year back with open arms and outdoor fun.
There are a few changes to the event this year:
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.
