It’s Good for the Children
  • As an adult in our community, you are the most important role model for our children.
  • Your support demonstrates that you value their education and will teach them to value it as well.
  • Research has shown that children whose parents are involved in their school get better results and have fewer disciplinary problems.
It’s Good for You
  • You get a say on how funds are spent, contribute ideas on how to raise money and raise concerns.
  • You will meet new people and enhance your parent network: It’s not all work, we like to play too.
  • If you have the time, there are opportunities to use your skills to help in many ways as well as acquire new skills during the process.
  • You will be informed about what is going on in the Sherman School by getting to know staff and other parents on a personal level.
It’s Good for the School
  • We are a Parent-led, independent organization that works with both the School Administration and the Board of Education.
  • Our fundraising revenue is used to supplement the school budget with enrichment programs for the Sherman School students.
