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 Preschool. 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 also engaged in hours upon hours of training and professional development this summer to support the academic and social/emotional instruction at Sheridan. Their commitment to continuing their own learning has been commendable, and they are excited to return to their classrooms to translate their learning into practice and enhanced opportunities for all students!
In addition to the instructional opportunities at Sheridan, several construction projects have been completed over the summer. A new ramp was added to increase ease of accessibility, and casework was changed in many classrooms in order to create a more open and creative learning environment. Additionally, we were luck enough to have an Eagle Scout choose to create garden beds for our school! These beds will provide a wide variety of learning opportunities. All of our students and families benefit from all of these enhancements to our school, and we are proud of District’s commitment to both our instructional programming as well as the learning environments for our students and staff.
Communication between home and school is important, so please get 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!
