Wild Activities Tour (SWAT) is a group of 7th and 8th grade students
who want to help make a difference at Sherwood Middle School and in the
primary job is to help and encourage new students, especially the 6th
graders, in a new school environment. At the beginning of each school
year, SWAT team members work with 6th graders on their first day by
taking them to meet their teachers, going on school tours, and having
fun all at the same time!
the holiday season, SWAT helps coordinate the Helping Hands Food
Scavenger Hunt. We encourage the SWAT members to form their own teams
and go out into the community to collect food. Other students who choose
not to participate are recruited to help count food, pack boxes, and
then load the U-Haul. Yes, I said U-Haul! In 2010, we loaded a 17'
U-Haul to its capacity!
the spring, SWAT hosts a day for 5th graders to come and get a sneak
peak at what middle school is all about. Students participate in
get-to-know-you activities since it is the first time all of the
elementary schools are together, meet and greet with the school
counselors and administrators, tours around the building, and lunch in
students are encouraged to apply in the spring for the 2012-2013 SWAT
Team. Below are the application materials students need to fill out to
be a part of the SWAT Team. Application materials are due back to Mrs.
Barrett by June 1st.
