Experience the power of public education.
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year in the Pulaski County Special School District. We are proud that you have chosen to experience the power of public education, and we pledge that all of us at Sherwood Elementary will work diligently every day to ensure a quality education for each and every student. Kindergarten through fifth grade will continue taking part in the state’s Common Core Curriculum. This curriculum focuses on goals and objectives that are designed to prepare students for a global work force.
Sherwood Elementary is a small school with a big heart. “Children first” is not just a slogan but an attitude that is exhibited every day by the teachers, staff and volunteers. We expect every student to learn and succeed at something every day. It is because of high expectations that the children of Sherwood Elementary excel not only with test scores, but with positive attitudes and enthusiasm for learning. We believe that the strengthening and perfecting of a democratic society is a responsibility of the school and home. We will strive to develop and enhance learning skills, and provide enrichment opportunities of all students. This will enable students to think and work independently and cooperatively toward solutions to the problems, as well as develop skills, and cultivate inquiring minds. Ultimately, the substance of our educational program will enhance the growth of our students as individuals. As our students progress and mature they will emerge as responsible citizens and contribute significantly to family, community and society now and for years to come.
We hope you find this website helpful as you navigate through a busy school year.
