Hello Parents/Guardians,


        Sherwood Middle School is celebrating its Homecoming Activities this week. The theme for Wednesday is Sherwood Spirit Day. Students may wear green and black to support our team. Students are able to purchase a game ticket, a bus ride to the game and back to the school, a drink and a hot dog for $12.00. This must be paid by the COB on tomorrow. This information was distributed to students last week.

     In addition, all students will receive a free Sherwood Middle School t-shirt on tomorrow. These shirts were donated by one of our generous adopters. This shirt will be used for any field trip that the students go on this school year.

Thanks in advance,

Mr. Henry, Principal



Hello Parents & Guardians,

 On Wednesday, September 18, 2019, we will celebrate Homecoming 2019 at Sherwood Middle School. Students were issued a flyer with a detailed breakdown for all homecoming activities. Parents, we need your help in another area. We have over 125 students arriving to school tardy daily. Our first class begins promptly at 7:15. If a student is tardy he or she is missing out on receiving instruction from their teacher.

Thanks in advance,

Michael Henry, Principal
