Hi Sharks! Happy Fall!
I hope the craziness of the start of the school year is calming down and you and your families are all getting into a groove and a nice routine! :-) It's so great to visit the school full of our shark-tastic kiddos and staff and to feel the positive energy of the awesome learning, inquiry and excitement that goes on all day!
Alongside the awesome accomplishments the teachers and students are making at school, the APT board is also full of truly amazing rockstars who have been working so hard on so many APT events and have been so helpful in welcoming the students and staff and helping ensure a smooth transition into school for everybody! We touched on many of these events at our first amazing APT meeting (the meeting minutes are on our web site so be sure to check them out) but here are just a few events to note:
The Beach Bash/Playground Dedication kicked off the year with a ROCKING start! The kiddos enjoyed jamming to the DJ's tunes, playing on the awesome new playground and spending time together with old and new friends! The Yearbook committee has been hard at work snapping pics of all of the kids already and kicking off the actual book by securing the pics of our wonderful front and back cover. Have you checked out the "Omlette-ville" and "Bones Brothers" Food Service bulletin boards to help showcase the importance of a healthy breakfast and the role healthy foods play in strong bones!? We have 100% participation in the Directory this year which is great to see! The online version is available now & hard copies will be ready by mid-October so keep your eyes peeled! We also have our 1st Meals for Teachers event coming up on October 26 - we will need many parent volunteers to help shower our teachers and staff with a delicious meal during conference night so thank you in advance!
Last but certainly not least, we have our always popular Monster Bash coming up on Friday 10/20 from 5:30-7:00 pm! Get excited for some of the old favorites such as the haunted hallway, pizza, photo booth and mini donuts & carnival games and for some new fun treats such as costume and jack-o-lantern contests! We always need a lot of volunteers for this event too so please sign up at: http://signup.com/go/iFVrxyP. We are so thankful for all of the parent volunteers and the spooltacular Monster Bash APT committee for organizing this and making it what's sure to be the best party yet! :-)
Coming up -- our next APT meeting will be Wednesday 11/15 at 9:15 in the IRC with guest speaker Superintendent Mike Simeck - this is a meeting you will not want to miss! It's your chance to sit down with him in a small group setting and get to know him and his vision for the District better and ask him any questions...yes really, come with any and all questions. He would love to hear them and is always happy to provide answers to our Shark parent community! APT meetings are open to all Sheridan parents (just just those on the APT board) so please join the fun!
And as always, be sure to check our APT FB page https://www.facebook.com/sheridanapt/ and the APT bulletin board inside the front hallway for updates, important dates, volunteer opportunities photos etc!
I could not be more thankful for the overwhelming number of amazing parent & staff helpers willing to lend a hand on this APT board and basically anywhere and wherever needed. Please feel free to contact me with any questions as I am happy to assist or point you in the right direction.
