Saturday, October 15, was a simply perfect autumn day for the community to get together and celebrate the 13th Annual Harvest Fair at the Sherman School!
Over 300 volunteers, supporters, and children with their families and friends attended this fundraising event that’s sponsored each year by the Sherman Parent Teacher Organization.
The Harvest Fair event was a huge success. The SPTO Used Clothing & Toy Drive and the Scholastic Book Fair were quite popular, and two class fundraisers for the 4th and 8th Grade class trips to Washington DC and Boston were returning favorites.
All of this fun and togetherness was only made possible by the many dedicated volunteers and the generosity of many local businesses and supporters. We also thank all of our families for attending the event, and a heartfelt thanks goes out to…
