Volunteers Needed for After Prom!!

Sherwood Parents and Guardians – 

The PTSA needs your help!  The Sherwood PTSA has sponsored After Prom for over 24 years.  After Prom is a safe environment that offers fun, food, and friends in a supervised event.  It is one big party with something for everyone.  It’s a place for all the kids to be together and continue their celebration with all their friends.  After Prom will be held the evening of Friday, May 13 until the early morning of Saturday, May 14.
We need tons of volunteers!  After Prom cannot happen without volunteers.  
Parent volunteers from all grades are needed!
Get a group of friends and volunteer together!  Please use the link below to sign up.
Thank you in advance for your support!
