Principal's Message

Dear Sherwood Families,

When someone asks me where I work or what I do, my answer is always the same..., "I get to spend my days with incredible children and a talented team of professionals amongst a warm, loving community." Inside and out, the entire Sherwood community works together to make SES a special place to spend the day.

Our building is full of budding authors and artists sharing their stories and masterpieces. The energy and enthusiasm of students who spontaneously break out in dance and storytelling, applause and celebration is inspiring. I am awed by the students, their incredible sense of humor, insight and interest in the world which surrounds them. I'm greeted by hundreds of smiles everyday...smiles so big I can see through the masks we need to wear! It is the people...the children, the staff and the families who make Sherwood Elementary School an amazing place...a true blessing, a blessing I am grateful to be part of!

I would like to thank the Sherwood PTA. During unprecedented times, the PTA continues to find ways to support our school and students. Creative fundraising and events help to keep our students and community engaged. Our building was beautifully decorated in the fall and is now a "Winter Wonderland" enjoyed by both students and staff. Thank you to all our PTA members. Your hard work and generosity are the backbone of our school!

Please take a moment to view our newsletter, SES Life (linked in the sidebar). It is published regularly to give you a taste of student life on Smith Avenue and share with you some of the great things happening here every day. Enjoy!


Curt Juengerkes, Principal

Islip has been named one of the Best Communities for Music Education by the NAMM Foundation for the seventh consecutive year, recognizing the strength and depth of the school district’s music program.

“This honor is the result of hard work on the part of our music students and staff in conjunction with tremendous support from parents, school board members, administrators and the community at large,” said Brian Kroll, Islip’s director of fine and performing arts.

“What an accomplishment,” Superintendent Ellen Semel said. “It is a milestone to make the list, but to keep this going for seven years is outstanding.”
