Message From Mr. Mitchell
Wow, it is so energizing to have all of the students back into the building! On Wednesday, we welcomed the incoming freshmen to Sherwood High School, and they did a great job getting acquainted with the school and their classes. On Thursday, all 1700+ students had their first day of the school year and it was amazing! Our “Welcome Back” assembly was lively with great facilitation from our leadership students, and outstanding performances from our Mixolydian choir group, Bowmen Cheer, and Arrows Dance teams. Our athletic teams have started their competition seasons, as well as our marching band practicing extensively, and our theater program getting ready to hold auditions soon. It’s going to be a great year at SHS!
As it is every year, our traffic situation will take a little bit to sort itself out and become more efficient. Thursday was definitely hectic with all of the students arriving for the first day, but the wait and back-up was noticeably less on Friday. This will naturally continue through the next couple of weeks, and there are steps that we are taking as a school to improve the process, such as improved signage and monitoring traffic times and rates to find the points that need improvement.
The traffic patterns are a team effort and we ask your cooperation in helping to make it as efficient as possible. When you are dropping your student off in the morning, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE move as far forward as possible before they exit your car. Simply moving forward before students exit moves the entire line forward, both on our campus and out on Haide and Elwert roads. Again, please help support everyone involved in making this go smoothly by moving forward to drop off your student. Thank you!
Have a great weekend, and Go Bowmen!
