The Sherman Sharks held a Curriculum Night/CLC Kickoff on Thursday, August 21, 2014. We had around 300+ attend the evening, including Sherman students, parents, and all school staff.

This night was packed with parents being able to visit classroom teachers and hear about what they are teaching this year, students enjoying rotations such as the bouncy house, estimation station and surface tension, and then all enjoyed some pizza! We can’t forget about the band that came – Omaha Street Percussion!! OSP brought music alive! Not only did they bring music to a whole other level, OSP made the students, parents and teachers animated as well!
This night was important for these reasons: 1) It encouraged students to sign up for CLC that night 2) It provided educational lessons in the areas of Math and Science 3) Community building took place as we all ate together and enjoyed the show 4) Sherman school staff made comments such as, “If I had a kid here, I would definitely put him in the after school program!, “Ah, OSP is going to be in the program?! I am WAY jealous – can I come visit when they come?!”
Most importantly, perhaps, relationships were strengthened between the school day and the program – that’s something that I’d call… simply amazing!
