When your child joins Sharon Academy, your whole family becomes part of the Sharon Academy family. Throughout the year, our tight-knit family has many opportunities for engagement with your children, connections to fellow families, and involvement in the community. Please explore some of the opportunities for deeper family engagement. We cannot wait for your family to become our family!
Our Nursing Room and Additional Parent Conveniences
Sharon Academy has created a serene Nursing Room at both of our campuses. In order to support parents on their infant feeding journey, our Nursing Room provides a comfortable and private space. This room is equipped with a glider, Boppy nursing pillow, and soft lighting for use during drop-off, pick-up or anytime you choose during the day.
At Sharon Academy, we know how busy those early mornings can be for our wonderful parents; we are here to help! In order to help with a stress-free start each day, we provide healthy on-the-go breakfast snacks and coffee for our parents. Also, grab some fresh fruit in the afternoon to give you that quick burst of energy for the ride home.
Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)
Sharon Academy is blessed to have an active Parent Teacher Organization to provide additional support to the teachers of Sharon Academy. The goal of our PTO is to have a positive impact on our Sharon Academy family. The non-profit group sponsors our annual Fall Festival, Spring Fling, Teacher Appreciation Week, and so much more. Our PTO works hard to ensure teachers feel supported and our families feel connected. Family members are encouraged to join and attend the monthly PTO meetings.
Throughout the year, Sharon Academy hosts several family events where our families come to fellowship and build relationships. Each fall, our PTO sponsors the Fall Festival. The Fall Festival is full of exciting games, an opportunity to bid on wonderful raffle baskets, and enjoy delicious food with family and friends. The Spring Fling event is a fundraiser for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital; our children and families participate in a bike-a-thon in addition to enjoying a few games and food.
Each Thanksgiving, our families gather for a special Thanksgiving meal. Children love having the opportunity to share their classrooms, teachers, and feast with their families. Throughout the summer, our families love our sweet Summer Movie Nights; nothing is better than time under the stars enjoying a wonderful movie. All families are always welcome and the smiles are evidence of the most wonderful time!
Parent-Teacher ConferencesAt Sharon Academy, we know that parents and families play an instrumental role in their child’s education and development. Every Fall and Spring, parents are invited to participate in Parent-Teacher Conferences. These conferences are an opportunity to discuss your child’s academic growth, overall development, and any celebrations or concerns. These conversations include discussions about data from developmental assessments, along with classroom and home observations. Communication about your child’s growth and development is not limited to our Parent-Teacher Conferences, but occurs throughout the year in various ways. Families are able to contact teachers through email, telephone, or schedule an in-person meeting. Parents and teachers work in a true partnership; communication is a continuous effort.
The families of Sharon Academy are exceptionally giving and always exemplify the spirit of giving. Throughout the year, the Sharon Academy community participates in various outreach projects. These projects truly provide support to the needs of our community and help instill the value of generosity to our children along the way. Some of our past outreach projects include:
- An Angel Tree at Christmas that benefits the Salvation Army
- Annual Canned Food Drive in November
- Clean-up and sponsorship of an area of Sharon Road
- Our Spring Fling Bike-a-thon that benefits St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital
- A Book Donation for Promising Pages
- A School Uniform Drive for a local Title I Elementary School
- … and so many more!
