Thanks for being visitor:

We are very excited to be participating in D112's Day of Giving this year.  With the holidays quickly approaching, there are many in our community that continue to feel the effects of the past year or so in various ways. In the spirit of being “Stronger Together,” we have the opportunity to take that burden away during this holiday season to allow families to focus on what truly matters—each other. The goal of the Day of Giving is to assist approximately 600 people in 150 families throughout the Highland Park and Highwood communities.  And we, at Sherwood, are invited to participate!  The Sherwood PTO has pledged to provide 100 bags of rice towards this overall goal.  If you would like to contribute, drop offs are due to Sherwood by Friday, December 3rd. There will be a donation box located in the front office for your convenience.


Thank you for your consideration and Happy Holidays!



Join us December 6th thru December 8th at these participating McDonald's locations - Highwood, Highland Park or Bannockburn - for a fundraiser supporting Sherwood School.  McDonald's will donate 15% of every order back to us!  Families must download and use the McDonald's app in order to participate.  Our fundraiser will be under Deals and listed as "Sherwood School PTO Fundraiser." 

Please note: it is Pickup orders only - either in store, at table, curbside or Drive-thru. 

More information will be coming out soon, so make sure to keep checking back!!!!
