Good Evening Gator Families!

Sam Sherratt PS celebrates World Down Syndrome Day. We rocked our socks! Socks were chosen by the World Down Syndrome Day because chromosomes are shaped like socks, and those with Down Syndrome have an extra one. Thank you to all of our staff and students who participated!!

Please Join Us for our Last Movie Night of the School Year!

March 28th, 2018. Sam Sherratt Celebrates our last movie night of the year with all proceeds going to help our Symphonic Winds Band attend Nationals.

The Sam Sherratt Symphonic Winds Concert Band performed at the Golden Horseshoe Music Festival in February and earned an official invitation to perform at the National Festival in Toronto this coming May. MusicFest Nationals is a “by invitation only” event. This is the very first time that Sam Sherratt has been invited to participate at the Nationals! The band is very excited about their upcoming performance, and eager to show their growing talents on the National stage. Ensembles in many different categories (concert band, jazz band, choir) from all across Canada will be performing in the festival. Speaking from experience as a band director and past participant, (Francis Smith) this is an incredible event to be part of!! To that end, we need your support in order to get the band there.

Please come with your family to movie night on Wednesday, March 28th from 5:30-8pm in our gym. Order pizza, buy popcorn and snacks, bid during the silent auction for a comfy couch to sit on, and have a great family night out! There will even be a special pre-movie performance in “the mall” by the Symphonic Winds! All monies raised from the event will help fund the band’s trip! Let’s make this a year to remember for music at Sam Sherratt!

In Partnership,

Maggie Parker, Principal

Bita Watts - Vice Principal
