The Sherwood Park Care Fund works to show our families they are not alone during trying times. The Care Fund operates as a separate entity, and is not funded by, PAC funds. It is used solely to support families in our community and members of administration and faculty who are experiencing hardship be it loss, illness or changes to family situation, etc.
The annual total of our Care Fund is generated by one event, the Sherwood Park Pancake Breakfast, held every year on the last day of school before winter break. Our firefighter dads flip pancakes and our amazing volunteers make for a fun and festive start to festive break.
We are very proud of the Care Fund and grateful for all contributions. We hope to see you at Pancake Breakfast on the last day of term! Please help us by contributing what you can to the donation boxes spread throughout the gym. Don't forget to sign up for a volunteer shift at https://m.signupgenius.com/#!/showSignUp/30e0444afae28a3f94-sherwood4
If you know of anyone who could use some extra support (at any time of the year) please let Karmyn or Fiona know. Alternately you can approach a teacher, support worker or member of administration. All information is strictly confidential.
Enormous thanks to our firefighter dads and our incredible sponsors: Anthem Properties, Nesters Market, and JJ Bean.
Hot Lunch is the largest source of PAC income and is run by a small, dedicated group of volunteers. All Sherwood Park families, staff and the NSCC are invited to participate.
Please help your Sherwood Park Grade 7 classes raise money for farewell activities and Legacy gift.
Annual Christmas Market December 18
It is tradition at our school for your grade 7 students to organize the Christmas Market where your little ones can to do their Christmas shopping for parents and siblings. We need your help! Clean up your clutter and send us your new and/or gently used items to the office by December 13. Your donations will be repurposed as thoughtful Christmas gifts. We would also make great use of any holiday-themed wrapping paper you can send along with your items.
Don’t forget to send a few dollars with your kids to school on December 18 to shop the market! Your grade 7 students will be on hand to help the younger students pick out and wrap presents. We promise you some smiles and laughs on Christmas morning when you discover what kind of weird and wonderful treasures your child has picked out for you.

Term 2 Community Programs
Registration is now open and will run through to Dec 20th
The after school community programs for Term 2 are:
Drop Off at Fairway and help reduce stress for our Safety Patrollers
A couple of weeks ago we experienced one of the heaviest traffic mornings up Dollar Road. It can be quite stressful for our safety patrollers to have to stop cars for pedestrians when there is a never-ending stream of cars.
An alternative drop off area, for those not able to walk up, is on Fairway Drive (South of Dollar Road). It's only a short walk to school, without having to cross any roads, up Dollar Road to the front of the school, or taking the trail (closer to Golf Drive), leading to the back playground.
This will help alleviate the congestion on Dollar Rd. It can be quite stressful for our safety patrollers to have to stop cars for pedestrians when there is a never-ending stream of cars. Mornings can be hectic, but if we make an effort to leave even 5 minutes earlier, it can make a huge difference for us and our kids.
38th Annual Community Event
Night Under the Sea
Saturday February 22nd 2020
The annual Seycove Auction raises funds each year to directly support the Seycove Family of Schools’ PACs. Last year our PAC received $8000 from the event’s proceeds. As always each school is responsible for submitting silent auction items. Here is how you can participate:
Send $10 cash to the school office, or log into www.munchalunch.com to make a contribution towards our auction items (under the “Fundraising Open!” tab).
Don't forget to register!! This is open to non-Sherwood Park families as well so spread the word.
So you want to be a babysitter? Or maybe your parents want you to take this course so they feel confident leaving you at home alone? Babysitting with First Aid Hero emphasizes learning through real life scenarios. information covered includes: Exploring the business of babysitting, creating safe environments, safely caring for ages 0-12, and first aid skills.
The PAC would like to thank the Coast Salish people, specifically the Tsleil-Waututh Nation and the Squamish Nation, on whose traditional territory our School District resides. We value the opportunity to learn, live and share educational experiences on this traditional territory.
