The Y’s Afterschool Program is located at the Sherman Elementary School and is for students in kindergarten through 5th grade. Their program is modeled after the Food, Fun, and Afterschool program designed by the Harvard School of Public Health Prevention Research Center and the YMCA of the USA. They promote healthy life styles through physical activity and healthy snack. Other activities include group games, arts & crafts and homework assistance.     


In their commitment to education, County Market presented Sherman Elementary School a check in the amount of $1000.  County Market has now given more than $1.1 million to local schools over the past 21 years!  As an associate owned company, County Market understands the need to give back to the communities it does business in.  County Market is happy to help our schools in the all-important task of educating our youth.  

This year, County Market and its sponsors, including Pepsi, Kellogg's, Smucker's and McCormick have teamed up to donate nearly $100,000 to 53 area schools. You can help our school ear Max Dollars by using your Max Card each time you shop at County Market from August 1-December 31, 2016.  The program does not cost anything and will not take away from your personal Max Rewards you are already earning.  The more you scan your Max Card, the better our chance to earn money for our school.  Please go online to and click on the banner labeled "Max $ Sign Up" and help Sherman Elementary at the opportunity for the next giveaway.   You must register- even if you were registered last year.  Also, be sure to write/type "Sherman Elementary School" in for the school name.  The school number is 16377.   You cannot write/type Williamsville Schools, Williamsville High School, Williamsville Junior High or Williamsville Middle School or the rewards will not be allotted to any school.  For more information on Max Dollars for Education, please go to
