Sherwood PTSA Hosting a Powerful Program – April 22 – “Somone Like You”

Just in time for prom season, on April 22, 2014 at 7:15 pm in the Media Center, the Sherwood High School PTSA will be hosting a powerful program by the University of Maryland Medical Center for both parents and students on the consequences of drinking and driving.  There will be a video presentation entitled “Someone Like You” which tells the brief story of how one person’s poor decision to drink and drive resulted in one death and several injured passengers.  Following the video, the team of trauma nurses will engage parents and students in discussion around smart decision making.  Parents and students will learn the consequences of impaired driving, along with alternative decision making. 
The program is then augmented by a young trauma survivor who will share his powerful and inspirational story.  At the end of the program the floor is opened to the audience for any questions and comments about trauma prevention; impaired driving.
Both parents and students are strongly encouraged to attend this program. Students can receive SSL hour for attending.

Distracted Driving:
Distracted driving is a dangerous epidemic on America’s roadways. In 2012 alone, 3,328 were killed in distracted driving crashes.
The U.S. Department of Transportation is leading the effort to stop texting and cell phone use behind the wheel.  Since 2009, we have held two national distracted driving summits, banned texting and cell phone use for commercial drivers, encouraged states to adopt tough laws, and launched several campaigns to raise public awareness about the issue.
Distraction.gov is your resource for learning more about distracted driving.  Get the facts, get involved, and help us keep America’s roadways safe.

Message from Mr. Gregory

Sherwood High School End of Year Newsletter April/May 2014
A Message from Mr. Gregory …
Dear Parents and Guardians,
I want to extend my best wishes to our students, staff and families for a wonderful Spring Break. After this past winter, the new season with sunshine and warmer weather is welcomed! Students are on Spring Break from April 14 through April 18. Students and staff will return to school on Monday, April 21.
This was an unusual winter. The winter weather forced schools to close for ten days. Since four days were built into the school calendar, the school system needed to make up the additional days. The County applied for a waiver to the State and was granted a waiver for four of them. As a result, only two of our missed days need to be made up. We will make these days up on Monday, April 21 (formerly a holiday) and Friday, June 13 (extension of the school year by one day).
To help students and families prepare for the end of the school year, we are sending this newsletter home prior to Spring Break. Once we return from break, we will begin preparing for the end of the school year. We will be in the midst of exams, spring sports, culminating activities, and senior events. It is an exciting time of the year because we celebrate the accomplishments made by students and staff.
Enjoy Spring Break!
