Welcome to the

    Sherwood Forest Elementary PTA!


    Let's Saddle Up and Read at this year's
    Scholastic Book Fair which will be held
     May 3-7th in the SFES Cafeteria!!

    We usually have a great Book Fair each year in the Media Center where all families are welcome to shop with their kiddos and support our school. Unfortunately, this year it will be much smaller and a student only fair. We just want to make sure we are being safe and keeping all our families and staff healthy. This will be a smaller, but in person fair! Students will come through twice with their classes to shop for books. There will be no before school or after school shopping like in the previous years. Parents can send in cash or checks with their child or use the popular eWallet (see link below) which is a digital payment option. Families love the eWallet because it is a free and easy setup, your child has instant access to funds. It is a secure and contactless checkout and you can spend any balance at the The Scholastic Store Online. Just set up an account and put money into your child's eWallet and they are off and reading! The proceeds of our fair go to support our Media Center! 
    If your child is still learning virtually, they may come to the Book Fair on Wow Wednesday, May 6th and shop anytime between 9am and noon. Parents must stay in the car, but a volunteer will help your child in the Book Fair. 

    You can also shop online at our Online Book Fair. All orders are shipped to your home and there are thousands of bestsellers, collections, and more. All purchases benefit our school and earn us rewards through Scholastic.

    Click this link to visit our Book Fair homepage to access our Online Book Fair and sign your child up for their eWallet! 

    We are so excited to bring joy to the school through books and reading!

    As I welcome you to Sherwood Forest, there’s no denying that this school year is very different from what we would have anticipated this time a year ago. Circumstances in our world and a pandemic have caused us to shift courses dramatically. As we navigate these uncertain times together, I know this: Sherwood Forest is home to an amazing group of teachers and staff who care passionately about our children and want to inspire, help and equip them to thrive. Let’s partner together-- as parents, teachers and community members—to stay connected, to support our children and each other and make the most of the situation we are in. Your involvement is crucial and the Sherwood PTA looks forward to partnering with you. Stay tuned to the Scoop for all the ways you can partner with the PTA as this year progresses and look below for information on how to take the first step by joining the PTA!
