Welcome to Sherman Elementary!
We Believe Together…We
Welcome! My name is Mrs. Mary Griger and I am honored to be the principal of Sherman Elementary School. Welcome to the Shark Tank! It is a privilege to be a part of a highly experienced and skilled staff of teachers and support staff. I am eager to carry on the tradition of academic and community success during the 2019-2020 school year.
I am very excited to serve the students, families, staff and community. I began my journey with OPS in 2007, spending nine years as a classroom teacher at Miller Park Elementary. I also spent two years serving the Belvedere community as their Assistant Principal. this is my second year working with the Sherman community as Principal. On a more personal note, my husband Jason and I have two amazing children: our 10-year-old daughter Alexia and our 7-year-old daughter Natalie. The rest of our family includes a husky named Lucy and the most loving cat you could ever meet named Stinker.
Sherman is guided by four pillars: Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Safe and Be a Leader. These pillars are consistently modeled each day to ensure our school is a positive, proactive, respectful and productive learning environment. Hard work is valued and high expectations are realized and celebrated!
I believe that every student that walks through our school doors can learn and deserves the very best we can offer.
Partnerships with families and community members are important to the staff. We look forward to working as a team to maintain the high rigor of academic excellence at Sherman!
