Be Engaged. Be Proud. Be Together.

SHS Weekly Newsletter #12

Dear Bowmen Families and Students,


It’s hard to believe that next week is the end of the first trimester! Thank you for such a wonderful start to the school year. I know that I’ve said this many, many times, but I am so lucky to serve in this role.


As students are preparing for finals next week, I just wanted to share a message of encouragement for and confidence in them. This is such an amazing opportunity to demonstrate learning and I know that everyone will finish the trimester strongly. Please help your students prepare for their finals. This could look like asking questions about types of culminating learning experiences they are having, helping them study, or making sure they get a full night of sleep. Each of these things will help them best show what they have learned this trimester.


Have an amazing week!


Sincerely,

Melissa Baran

Principal  



Final Exams - 11/21 and 11/22

Sherwood High School will be on a Final Exam Schedule on Thursday, November 21st, and Friday, November 22nd.  During finals, students should be in attendance for the entire periods and conflicts such as appointments should be avoided.  We will not be excusing students early from final exam periods, even if they have finished their exam or activity, nor will we be sending notes to students during the final exam periods.  Please help us in supporting a quiet and focused testing atmosphere. Help make sure your student/s are prepared with everything they need (notes, extra paper, calculators, final projects, lunch, etc.).

Jostens Orders

If you missed the Jostens order days here at the high school, don’t fret! Families can order cap, gown, announcements and more online at www.jostens.com. Please see your Jostens order packet and contact customer support if you have order questions. 

Senior Shirt Pickup

Senior shirts will be available for pickup during both lunches next Tuesday, November 19th. Please remind your student to stop by and grab their gear!!

AP Exam Fees 

Good news! The State of Oregon voted to subsidize all AP exams by $25. That means we will be refunding $25 to all accounts that have paid their AP fees. Unfortunately, the vote came too late to be at the front end of this process but those refunds should be on your students' accounts before the beginning of next term and can be applied to any other fees. Thank you for your patience.

Congratulations to the Bowmen Cross Country Team

The Bowmen racers were amazing at the State Meet last Saturday. The Lady Bowmen battled and ran a number of lifetime best marks en route to a 12th Place Finish. Shortly after, the boys raced inspired and as the dust settled they found themselves as the 5th best team in the state. Both the ladies and gentlemen made more than a small mark on our record boards. Thomas Osborne placed 16th and has been recognized as 3rd Team All-State and Ismael Alvares placed 25th and is recognized as Honorable Mention All-State. Also part of this historic team was Nate Hicken, Jaron Homer, Jeffery Rogers, James Crabtree, Ethan Sturdivant, Vanessa Van Winkle, Kari Eddington, Mckenzie Abiley, Brooke Smith, Maia Oliver, Taylor Card, and Kaylyn Murphy. Great Job Bowmen - what a beautiful thing to see hard work, teamwork and dedication pay off.

Lost and Found

Stop by and check out the lost and found tables in the hallway near the Main Office this Wednesday - Friday. All items left at the end of the day on Friday, November 22nd, will be donated to a local non-profit.

Helping Hands

The holidays are right around the corner.  This can be a very stressful time for families and their budgets.  If you are interested in receiving help with holiday gifts or foods, our school counselors have information on local programs ready to offer support.  Please contact your student’s counselor directly for more information.
