Principal's Message

Dear Shrevewood Families,

We hope that you had a wonderful Spring Break! Staff and students have come back rested and ready to rock through the last quarter of the year!

There are many Shrevewood events happening between now and the end of the year- from Staff Appreciation to Field Day just to name a few. Please stay tuned to upcoming Wise Words, PTA messages and for opportunities to support our school family in one of these fun events. We will need your help and support!

Positivity Project

Next Week we will learn about Appreciation of Beauty and Excellence. 

What does this mean?

You notice and value the world’s beauty and people’s skills. You don’t take things for granted. Appreciation of beauty and excellence is the ability to
identify and enjoy that which is admirable in the world. There are three types of goodness in which positive psychology focuses: physical beauty (e.g. a sunset, song, or building); an exceptional skill or talent; and moral goodness (e.g. a character strength). Appreciation of beauty can generate awe; appreciation of a skill can generate admiration; and appreciation of moral goodness can generate moral elevation. All of these feelings (awe, admiration, and moral elevation) help us forget ourselves and find increased joy and meaning in the world.

Kindergarten Tours

Save the date for kindergarten school tours on April 26th. More information will be shared soon. if you have a kindergarten student who will attend Shrevewood in the fall you are invited to attend a tour of our building.
