Welcome to Sherwood Forest Elementary

  • About Us

    You can find Sherwood Forest Elementary, home of the Archers, located on top of the hill in Federal Way, near the BPA trail, and just a stone's throw from Enterprise Elementary and TAF@Saghalie Middle/High School.  The school was built in the early 1990s when the neighborhood around it was built.  More than one of our staff members have been with the building since it was opened.  Sherwood Forest Elementary may have one of the highest years of experience in the district with over ???? years of teaching, coaching, educating, and otherwise serving and supporting children.

  • Principal's Message

    Sarah Gill Welcome to Sherwood Forest Elementary! I am excited to be joining such a wonderful and caring community. I look forward to collaborating with each of you as we work  together to meet the needs of our student scholars. Our staff will continue to focus on providing the highest quality education possible in a safe and supportive learning environment. I understand the commitment that it takes for all students to achieve their very best. I believe that every child can succeed if provided the right supports and opportunities.

    We will work hard to maintain a strong two-way partnership with you and look forward to hearing from you about how we can best meet the needs of your child. In order to keep you informed of all that is taking place at school, be sure to look for the Sherwood Forest “Communication Folder” which goes home with students every Thursday afternoon. Students are asked to take the folder home, request a parent signature on the folder, and return it to school the next day.

    It is my honor to educate your child each and every day. I look forward to working closely with you to make Sherwood Forest the best educational experience possible. Please do not hesitate to reach out in any way.
