Principal's Message

Dear Shrevewood Families,

We had a great week with wonderful weather! We were able to use our outdoor learning spaces and take some of our classes outside. The Scholastic Book Fair was this week and we absolutely loved seeing students so excited to choose their favorite books to take home. Our school's love of learning and reading was evident! Thank you to our librarian, Ms. Wenzel, for organizing this event for our school. 

We hope you all have a fantastic weekend!


Joshua DeSmyter, Principal

Susie Lilburn, Assistant Principal

Book Fair Thank You!

BINGO Night & Bake Sale

Please join us on May 13th for a BINGO Night hosted by the PTA at Shrevewood. BINGO will start at 6:00 pm in the cafeteria. The 6th Grade Class will also be hosting a Bake Sale during BINGO.

If you would like participate in the Bake Sale, please sign up here.


Positivity Project

Next week we will begin learning about CONNECTION AND PURPOSE.

You have beliefs about the meaning of life and your life’s purpose. You seek to be part of something greater than yourself. Purpose gives individuals the sense that they are put on this earth for a reason and that they are somehow connected with humanity or the universe. People who possess a sense of purpose believe that they were put on earth for a reason. That reason can have all kinds of variety. It could be to create a unique invention, to bring joy
through art or music, or to raise their children to become good people. These people have a true calling.


Kindergarten Tours

Save the date for kindergarten school tours on April 26th. Tours will start at 5:30 and end at 6:30. You may come any time between 5:30 and 6:30. If you have a kindergarten student who will attend Shrevewood in the fall you are invited to attend a tour of our building. 

Please see our website for more information: SWES Website
