October 16, 2020
Dear Bowmen Community,
I hope you had a great week and are enjoying the beautiful fall weather. Below is the message for this week:
Have a wonderful weekend!
Homecoming 2020 is next week!
We have a variety of activities throughout the week:
We’ll be doing Spirit Days along with daily activity challenges and movie themes. If you participate in any of the daily activities or challenges, take a photo and post it on your Instagram and tag @sherwood_bowmen for a chance to win a Dutch Bro’s gift card each day. If you don’t have social media, there will be an opportunity for your Homeroom to enter a drawing as well.
Next Friday, October 23rd we will be having our Homecoming Parade! The Parade will begin at 3:30pm from the Sherwood Charter School and go to SMS (the old high school). All participants must wear a mask and practice social distancing!
Homecoming Variety Show Livestream!
In lieu of a Homecoming dance, this year we will present a new event: The HoCo Variety Show! This staff and student Variety Show will premiere LIVE on October 23rd, at 7pm on YouTube and will run around an hour and a half. We will post the link on the SHS website late next week. We hope you can tune in to witness some magical musical numbers, family friendly trivia, and best of all the Homecoming King and Queen Crowning!

AP Fees 2020-2021 – 10/23
This year the fee for each AP Exam is $95. This is an increase from $69 last year for two reasons:
- Collegeboard increased the fee from $94 to $95.
- The State of Oregon subsidized all AP exams $25 last year and those funds are not available this year.
If this fee is concerning for your family there are a couple options:
- If your student is on a Free and Reduced Meal plan, the fee is automatically waived. We need to know that your student is on this plan as privacy laws do not allow sharing of that information between departments.
- Payment plans are always an option. Contact Debi Bear to set up a payment plan that will work for your family.
- There are limited funds available for those who need them. Contact Scott Hadden or Becky Farwell to be considered for this help.
This fee is due October 23rd, 2020. If the timing is an issue, please consider setting up a payment plan or contacting Scott Hadden or Becky Farwell for assistance. We truly desire that this AP fee not be an additional cause for stress in our stressful world. If you have any questions please contact Becky Farwell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
