May News

Hi Parents and Guardians,

Thank you to everyone who helps support the School Council & Parent Society team members in making these opportunities happen. We would like to share some details from the activities and planning underway.

Invite for parents: Parents of students attending Riverbend School grade 6 classes and Banting & Best grade 3 classes are encouraged to attend the May 14 and June 11 School Council & Parent Society meetings. This is a good opportunity for you to learn about Sherwood School to help support your child's transition to a new school.

Fundraising in progress: We are pleased to offer the "Growing Smiles Plant Fundraiser" again this year. Orders can be placed after Spring Break starting on Tuesday, April 3 and will close on Wednesday, May 9. Order delivery date is Wednesday, May 23. This is a great way to support the School and to kick-off spring.

  • Fieldtrips
  • Technology initiatives
  • PE Equipment
  • Athletic uniforms
  • New equipment and supplies for complementary programs
