Welcome to the Sheridan Elementary Community!
Sheridan is a neighborhood school of approximately 230 students in grades K to 4, as well as the Community of Learners Early Childhood Program. We pride ourselves in offering a rich, diverse, high-quality educational experience for all learners in a “small-school” atmosphere. Our students and families are surrounded by a dedicated and collaborative staff, as well as countless resources throughout their entire educational journey.
In recent years, our teachers have worked intensely to implement new math, reading, and writing curricula; as well as an inquiry-based approach to science and social studies. Classroom teachers continually participate in hours upon hours of training and professional development to support the academic and social/emotional instruction at Sheridan. Their commitment to continuing their own learning is commendable! They work incredibly hard to transfer all of their learning into the instruction in their classrooms.
Communication between home and school is important, so please be sure you are connected! District 67 and Sheridan use electronic communications regularly including a weekly e-newsletter, details about special events, and important announcements. The Sheridan School website and Association of Parents and Teachers (APT) sites also include important information about current and upcoming events.
We are looking forward to a fantastic school year!
