THANK YOU & CONGRATULATORY NOTES:

 THANK YOU! Teacher Appreciation Week May 7-11 reminded us to thank all of our Sherman County teachers… and all of the instructional aides, administrators, assistants, secretaries, substitutes and staff that go above and beyond to help teach our students. We love our Sherman County Teachers! Sincerely, Sherman County Parent Teacher Organization

THANK YOU to everyone who participated in Take a Husky to Work for 2017-2018!  Take a Husky to Work is a program in which parents, guardians and community members can share their work and careers with the students of Sherman County. They take pictures of Gus the Husky as they go about their regular day. They fill out a questionnaire so we can learn more about them, their talents, and what they learned in school that helps them in their jobs and life today. Gus the Husky has been all over our county as well as to the bottom of The Dalles Dam a couple times, care facilities and doctor offices, ranches and farms here and in our neighboring state, advertising offices, city halls, college, waste facilities, patrol cars, garden nurseries and even another school just over the river. We appreciate getting to know you, your career and how you used what you learned in school to help you today. Thanks for volunteering! Sincerely, Members of the Sherman County Parent Teacher Organization

Appreciation can make a day – even change a life.

Your willingness to put it into words

is all that is necessary.
