The Sheridan School District needs bus drivers. Bus drivers in our district now make between $20-$28.05 per hour. It's one of few part-time jobs anywhere with health insurance available along with retirement benefits, all while working just 3-4 hours per day on average for 180 days per year. Nights, weekends, holidays and summers off. When your kids are out of school, so are you! You can only drive a morning route? We can use you. Only an afternoon route? We'll sign you up. You don't want a long-term commitment but could drive on occasion? We'd love to have you in a substitute driver pool. We'll even help you with all the training you need to get your CDL if you don't already have one. Call us today! 870-942-5522. Your district needs you. #YJNation #GreatPartTimeJob #DriveABus #HelpSomeKidsGetToSchool

Sheridan students and administrators kicked off the 2023 Arkansas Association of Educational Administrators fall conference today in Little Rock. Dr. Karla Neathery, superintendent of the Sheridan School District, serves as president of the AAEA and welcomed attendees. She introduced the Sheridan JROTC color guard, under the direction of SGM Darryl Dean, for the presentation of colors. Sheridan High School Principal Dr. Blaine Alexander led the Pledge of Allegiance, followed by East End Middle School student Allie Sharp’s outstanding rendition of the “Star Spangled Banner.” The Sheridan School District Middle School choir performed two songs -- “Shosone Love Song” and “Tongo.” The choir is under the leadership of Karissa Lindsey, SMS choir director.
It's time to clean out that closet! If you have a musical instrument from your child's time in band (or when you were in band), please consider donating it to the Sheridan band program. We always have students who can benefit from a loaner if theirs is being repaired, and we have many students who are interested in learning secondary instruments. Many instruments can be put into playing condition with minor service and can continue to give someone the joy of making music. If you have questions, please contact Gregg Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org or message at (501) 613-7862. He will be glad to provide you with an appraisal estimate for your donation records.
