Games are all quick to pick up and learn, have simplified instructions, and can be played at your own pace. Most games can be played by non-readers.
A must check-out game is Family Feud with answers supplied by Sherwood 3-6 graders. Other games include Outburst, Double Ditto, Reverse Charades, Headbandz, Yahtzee, Taboo Jr, Uno, Jenga, Apples to Apples, and more!

The famous Sherwood Holiday Market will be in full swing in the gym. This gives your mini a chance to buy presents for all those important folks on their list.

While you are at it, fill out the other side of the form for your chance to enter the Sherwood raffle. Tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5 and the prizes are fantastic. Send in your payment and get your tickets at breakfast.
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:
Sherwood needs your help to get ready for the great school year ahead.
The PTA is looking for families to help spruce up the grounds.
Join us on Sunday, August 27 at 3:00 p.m.
We will be pulling weeds, planting flowers, etc. If you are only free for a little while, any little bit helps!
Let's get the outside looking great and show pride for our awesome school.
Please sign up using this link:
Remember to bring gloves and any other gardening tools that may be helpful.
The Sherwood PTA would love to welcome you our wonderful school. We think you are going to love Sherwood! Here's some helpful tips to get you ready for the school year ahead.
1. If you are a Facebook person, you should join the Sherwood Parents Group. It's the best place to get your questions answered quickly.
2. School shopping is hassletown. Bright SchoolKitz make it easy. It's like Amazon for school supplies. Pay now, and a box of perfect supplies will be waiting on your kid's desk. You have until 8/15 to sign up.
3. Drop off and pick up are intense, like every sitcom you've ever seen. You don't use the rotunda in front of the school, instead kids are dropped off at the gym door. You've gotta wait until you are at the door to let them out.
4. There are two ways to pay for lunch. You can put money in your child's EZ Pay Account online or give them cash each day.
5. If you want to give your child a chance to look around, the Back to School Bash on Thursday, August 31 at 5 p.m. is a great way to do it. If you are new and your child will be in grade 1 or above, there's a new family orientation at 4 p.m. on the 31st as well. Kindergarten parents, you will have another time scheduled for this, don't worry.
6. We have an excellent, PTA-produced newsletter that goes out each week during school called NewsBytes. Sign up here. Principal Hamilton also sends out a weekly message to parents.
7. This website is another great resource. It's updated each week!
8. Last, but not least, consider joining our PTA. Your $10 membership fee gives you access to the Holy Grail of Sherwood info - The Directory. It's the only place to get the names, phone numbers and email addresses of that kid your child is badgering you to set a playdate with. Plus, the PTA is a great place to do great work for your child's school alongside some very warm-hearted folks.
Welcome to Sherwood!
