Principal’s Corner-Happy New Year & Resolutions!
Upcoming Events:
Dear Sheridan School Family Members,
1/23—1/2 day of school, 11:30 dismissal
As I reflect on my first half year as Sheridan instructional leader a few thoughts come to mind:
1/29—2nd grade family night
1/30—Family sledding day during lunch recess
What an amazing school family we have! Sheridan is truly A
Special Place for Everyone (Petoskey school’s motto) and A
Quality School...Just for Kids! (Sheridan’s motto)
BRAVOs to all staff members. They willingly give love, joy
and inspiration to each and every one of our students!
I couldn’t do it without the assistance of all staff members but
a special thanks and BRAVO goes to my wonderful secretary,
Mrs. Lori Lewis. She is on the “front line” and always makes
a positive impression on all that she interacts with.
Last night was School Board recognition night.. I really
appreciate all that our child centered and competent Board
does for our schools. We purchased engraved children’s
books (based on their interests) to give to them. They, in turn,
give them back to our library for our students to enjoy! BRAVO Board!
So looking forward to the rest of this year and many years to
Yours in Education,
Patrick W. C. Bevier (Mr. B.)
PS Don’t forget to help us meet our New Year’s Resolution of
