Principal's Message, 9/5/17

Dear Shelton Families,

We have now been in school for three weeks and things are starting to work themselves out.  The transportation issues have been resolved, students know their teachers and where their classrooms are located, but most importantly, students and families are starting to feel part of a bigger community and are making new friends.

"Without a sense of caring, there can be no sense of community."


Shelton's Mission:

To equip and inspire students to be active and engaged citizens in a diverse and changing world.

Shelton's Vision:

  • Foster a diverse, safe, and welcoming community and learning environment.
  • Engage students in a rigorous academic environment that meets their individual needs and interests.
  • Nurture the joy of learning.
  • Instill critical thinking skills.
  • Promote strong relationships among parents, teachers and students.

Advanced Learning Plans

Jefferson County Public Schools is dedicated to providing comprehensive programming for the identification and education of the gifted and talented student. Gifted and talented students are those students between the ages of four and twenty-one years whose abilities, talents, and potential for accomplishment are so exceptional or developmentally advanced that they require special provisions to meet their educational programming needs. The district believes that a quality instructional program that differentiates curriculum and instruction is essential so all students can learn and grow at their level of potential.  Learn more about ALP’s. http://jeffcopublicschools.org/programs/gifted_talented/advanced_learning_plans

Watch D.O.G.S.

Don’t forget to sign up for our Watch D.O.G. S. program. Our hope is that we can get one Watch DOG every day of the week. We are happy to have volunteers all day, half a day or just a few hours.  We are looking forward to having the DOGS at the school and working with them this year!  The best way to schedule a day is to email Helen Rhodes directly and she will put it on the calendar -Helen.Rhodes@jeffco.k12.co.us. You can also call 303.982.5686 or sign up on the calendar located on the main hallway by the front office.  

Join us for our Pizza Night on Monday, September 18 at 6:00 PM in the cafeteria.  This is a great time for dads, grandpas and father-figures to eat dinner with their children and learn more about the program.  Hope to see you there!


We have a multitude of events happening this year. Please check out the Shelton PTSA website  and the Coyote Column http://www.sheltonptsa.org/coyote-column. You will find a great deal more information about the many happenings and upcoming events at Shelton.

Have a great week!
