Dear Sheridan Families,

Welcome to a new school year! I hope that you have been able to enjoy the great summer weather.   We are looking forward to seeing you during Sheridan’s Ice Cream Social Open House that will take place on Thursday, August 23rd  from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m.

Last school year, every student engaged in both designing and painting a Community Mural through two week-long school residencies with Drew Peterson and Greta McLain and Art-Crawl at Sheridan.  The artists have been busy this week installing the huge mural on the Broadway side of Sheridan Arts Spanish Dual Immersion Elementary School. The project, a collaboration of Forecast Public Art, GoodSpace Murals and artist Drew Peterson, was funded by a Minnesota State Arts Board Arts Learning grant.

We believe our children are our greatest priority and you are our best partners in ensuring all students receive a high quality education through arts integration and dual language learning. Therefore, we highly encourage you to be as engaged and involved as possible.  At Sheridan, we know that strong relationships with our parents and families is key to our students’ success. We look forward to getting to know each and every one of you and invite you to visit often, volunteer when you can, join one of our advisory boards and provide us with feedback.

We are looking forward to continuing merging our arts and our language magnet to provide opportunities for all of our students to explore the world through literacy, math, language, music, science, social studies, visual arts, physical education, social emotional learning, and culture. We are a caring, diverse community of creative, inclusive, critical thinkers that empower its members to be lifelong learners.

Not only have we been beautifying the outside of our building, we have been invested in recruiting new members to the Sheridan Teaching Community. Classroom assignments will be available and posted the day of Ice Cream Social Open House.  Our new families must first come to the main office during the Ice Cream Social to receive support filling out registration forms. Your teacher will be providing each family with required forms to be signed by August 31, 2018.

Sheridan’s Ice Cream Social Open House and the 12th Annual Eastside Barbeque will be the same night. Please, plan to attend both events!
