Join the Sherwood PTA

 

Hey! We just met you...

AND, this might be crazy, but you're a parent - join the PTA, maybe?


Being  involved in the PTA is more than meetings, planning events, fundraising and volunteering - it's about creating and fostering a community. When parents can develop friendships with other parents in  their neighborhood, it creates a bond that makes our school safer and  more welcoming at the same time. When children witness their parents  being involved, thinking of others, and giving their time, money or  talents - it shows them by example how to make this world a better place.

 

By coming together and getting to know each other, we are able to make our world and school a better place. The more connected we are, the stronger and  louder our voice becomes. This is why the PTA was created; to be an advocate of the students and support the school.


While  great principals administer and great teachers teach, a great PTA creates, supports, and maintains the spirit of community which makes  school a special place.
