Farewell 2018-2019

​​Thank you for and Incredible Year!

Farewell …It is not a goodbye, there is no finality to the word but a notion that there is a future connection to be made.

Sherwood staff would like to congratulate all students for their accomplishments throughout the 2018-2019 school year. It is amazing to see how you have grown this year! Your teachers who have watched you grow and become leaders over the years are so proud of you. As we wrap up this school year it is an opportunity to celebrate and reflect, while also looking forward to the upcoming opportunities that our students will have as they move on to the next chapter of their educational story. Every ending is the start of a new beginning – an opportunity for change, new adventures and a chance to re-invent yourselves.

“Today, you close the door to the past, open the door to the future, take a deep breath – step on through and start a new chapter in your lives.” (unknown)

Thank you to all of our Sherwood Families for an amazing year of learning! This week we say farewell to all of our Grade 9 students as they venture off to their new adventures in High School. We look forward to hearing their stories and successes in the fall. We also look forward to welcoming all of our new students coming to us in both Grade 4 and Grade 7! Please see our calendar for our 2019-2020 dates. Wishing you all a rest-filled and relaxing summer break filled with family fun and amazing adventures.

Healthy Minds, Healthy Bodies| As a continuation of our “Healthy Minds, Healthy Bodies” initiative from January 2019, we will continue to focus on: Healthy Nutrition – No Slurpees allowed in the school, use of Appropriate Language – no excessive swearing, and lates and absences – no skipping of classes. We have two additional items that we will be focusing on in the new school year:

Cell Phones/Digital Devices|

Cell Phone use will NOT be permitted during school hours for the 2019-2020 school year. Your child will be required to keep their phone locked in their locker during the school day. There will be no opportunity for them to access their phones. As always, you have access to your child in case of an emergency by contacting our main office at 403-777-7890 (ext: 0). Further information and a more detailed ‘Cellphone and Electronics policy’ to come.

Vaping|

Smoking, vaping/e-cigarettes will not be permitted at any time on school property. This includes all and any rooms within the school (bathrooms, hallways, classrooms, etc.), outside on the school fields, at the front entrance or anywhere that is considered school property. Vaping is illegal for anyone under the age of 18.

Lockers|

The use of lockers for the 2019-2020 school year will be mandatory, students will not be allowed to carry backpacks during the day. We have built in a movement break time block into our schedule for students for next year to accommodate time for them to retrieve and return materials needed for each class from their lockers.
