Sherwood School District is excited to offer a full day, tuition-free, kindergarten program for the 2015-2016 school year. Kindergarten students will start the day along with their 1st-5th grade peers, and will experience a complete school day, including: literacy, mathematics, social studies and science instruction. They will have daily opportunities for music, physical education, and library/media. Families wishing to participate in a shorter school day will have an option to exercise that choice, with a consistent early pick-up option. Mid-day transportation will not be provided by the district.
Planning for Sherwood’s full day kindergarten programming has been ongoing throughout a two year process, which featured a collaborative team of highly regarded veteran kindergarten teachers. This “Kindergarten Advisory Team” continues to plan for the launch of a developmentally appropriate, research-based program of inquiry and learning.
Parents of new kindergartners and their students are encouraged to attend “Kindergarten Round-Up” activities at each of the four elementary schools on .
