PAC Updates

Parent volunteers needed for a temporary committee to plan for the upcoming merge between LRMS and SMS. We are looking for five to ten parents to participate in building the foundation for the new Sherwood Middle School PAC.  The process to merge is quite extensive and we are searching for parents with experience in Web Design, Accounting, Drafting and submitting a new 501c3 organization, Bylaws development and much more! Please email Laurelridgepac@gmail.com if you're interested in this unique opportunity to build the PAC for the new Sherwood Middle School. 


Student Store

Looking for the perfect Valentine's Day treat for your Middle School student?  Consider gifting an LRMS Student Store punch card!  The winter holiday punch cards were a big hit so we are offering another sale:  $10 for 10 punches.  Most items in the Store are priced at $1 or less.  Please email the Store at lrmsstore1920@gmail.com to get hooked up now with this awesome offer!  Your middle-schooler will think you are the coolest parent EVER! 

Valentine Goody Bags are being assembled and will be offered for sale in the Store starting the first week in February until supplies last.  These will be filled with treats for students to give to their friends or keep for themselves!  Price to be determined and will be between $1-$2.


Fraction Bootcamp

SMS is offering a Fraction Bootcamp class to all middle school students in grades 6-8. This camp is funded by the City of Sherwood's Community Enhancement Grant. In our first Fraction Bootcamp, we will discuss: What is a fraction? How do I represent a fraction? Where do fractions fall on a number line? Fraction Bootcamp participants will also enjoy snacks. 

  •       When: Thursday, December 12th from 3-4pm
  •     Where: SMS Room 21

We understand that if you are travelling from LR, your child will arrive closer to 3:15pm. That's OK! We welcome your participation. Please indicate to Elizabeth that your child is traveling from LR, and we will wait to begin instruction. Space is limited.

Please email all photos to Carol Duncan at cduncan@sherwood.k12.or.us. Please note, all team photos will be shared with the SMS yearbook staff.
