Message from the Principal:

Dear Students and Parents,

I am delighted to be a part of the Sherwood Elementary team. My strongest belief as an educator is that every child can reach high levels of academic excellence.  Parents, as adults, we must do everything possible to unlock the potential of each and every student.  I share the mission and vision of Sherwood Elementary and truly believe that by practicing diligence in all we do as a community we can “provide quality education for all students, empowering them to become life long learners and successful citizens.


We will continue to set high expectations, make new plans, implement new strategies, and use and create new and innovative ideas.  Our success is only possible by setting high expectations and standards and hard work of our students, parents, and teachers to reach and exceed these expectations and standards. 

As an instructional leader, I want to ensure that our students are being challenged and parents are informed of the academic progress we will experience at Sherwood Elementary.  Along with academic success, we want students to exhibit good behavior in and out of the classroom.  As parents, we need you to discuss your expectations and our expectations with your child.  No learning can take place in an unruly and disorganized environment.  In order to keep you informed, we will be communicating weekly through our School Home Communicator folder, our website, grade level and school-wide newsletters. 

I truly believe that each teacher is fully capable, competent, and eager to educate your child and confident that each will meet or exceed your expectations.  If you would like to meet with your child’s teacher, please call the school and schedule an appointment.  This will ensure the learning environment will not be disturbed.  My door is always open and I am available to discuss any praises, suggestions, and concerns you may have.

Thanks to the diligence of our entire community, Sherwood students are definitely “aiming for excellence”.  The dedication of our students, our families, our staff, and our community is a powerful contagious energy, and instills in me the spirit to do everything possible to become a better educator continuing the Sherwood tradition of pride and excellence.  I look forward to meeting and working with all of you in the coming months.  Please accept my sincere thanks to all your warm hospitality, support, and encouragement.

May the confidence and skills of all our students continue to grow, as we remain diligent in all we do.

Message from the Assistant Principal:

Welcome to Sherwood Elementary School, “Home of the Ace Archers” where our target is EXCELLENCE! As an Assistant Principal, I am extremely pleased to be a member of the Sherwood community and a collaborative staff that are dedicated and committed to ensuring that our students become highly successful achievers and responsible citizens.

It is my firm belief that all children can learn and excel to be proficient in all areas of their educational experiences. With a highly qualified, caring staff and administration and a strong home-school partnership our students will definitely reach high levels of proficiency because at Sherwood we are diligent in meeting the educational, social and emotional needs of each child. The education of children entails a dynamic fellowship among students, parents, and teachers. I invite you to be an active partner in your child’s learning experience. Children are enthusiastic, confident and successful when adults encourage and support their talents and efforts. I also invite you to become actively involved in our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). They support our students by offering a variety of services and activities.Communication between school and home is the key to success. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you may have concerning the transition of your child throughout their Sherwood experience. Working together, we can provide your child with wonderful learning opportunities that will positively impact his/her future.

Educationally yours, 

Terra Stigger
