District 67 conducted a test of the BrightArrow Notification System on Wednesday, November 15 at 6:00 pm. We use this system as the primary means of notification in the case of an emergency or unplanned event that causes an early dismissal, school cancellation, or late start.

It's that time of year to gather and celebrate the holiday with Sheridan's annual Winter Sing! Join us on Friday, December 1st, COL and Grades K-2 at 9:45 a.m. and Grades 3-4 at 1:30 p.m. for grade-level performances and a sing-a-long, with a special performance by the Winter Chorus & 4th Grade Orchestra in the afternoon! Students are asked to wear holiday colors (red, green, white or blue). We look forward to a wonderful time of music and singing!

Beck and then used the Design Thinking Process to create their own Bioluminescence. Each student used an iPad to take a picture of their design and creation as their first attempt at using Digital Portfolios.
