The winter weather has hit hard in the Portland area during the December and January months. Sherwood has experienced a number of inches of snow, some freezing rain and record cold temperatures. This has caused the Sherwood District schools to be closed seven days, so far, this school year. Although the kids are loving the fun in the snow, it has left the SSD staff and parents wondering how this will affect the 2016-2017 school calendar. We will keep you up to date on any calendar changes that may occur.
The Sherwood School District resumed classes on Wednesday, January 4th. Students and staff came back ready to dive into learning and teaching!
Archer Glen welcomed new students in December and January. We are excited to have these students and families join our AG community.
As our principal, Mr. Smith. said in his weekly message "Here’s to 2017 and all the promise that it holds."
The Sherwood School District Winter Break came early this year with snow starting on Wednesday afternoon, Dec. 14th. Students had been released at 12:15 pm for Early Release, teacher and staff Collaborative Learning Time, which helped to get students home before the roads were snowy and icy. Schools were closed Thursday and Friday due to treacherous road conditions.
School will resume for teachers on Tuesday, January 3rd and for students and all staff on Wednesday, January 4th.
Thank you to the many participants at Archer Glen who picked up tags gave gifts to needy children in the Sherwood. We had an overwhelming response to the need this year. The Sherwood community is so caring and giving. We appreciate all of our parents and families.
If you are interested in giving to Sherwood 4 Kids Sake you can stop in at Mudpuddles located in the shopping center by the Sherwood Post Office.

We had wonderful weather for our Archer Glen Fun Run. The kids had a great time getting out in the sunshine and enjoyed running and walking together as a class. There were a lot of smiles and cheers as family members and kids encouraged each other. Thanks to the Fun Run Crew for all the hard work and effort put into this event.
