Dear Shelton Family,

Welcome to Shelton Elementary for the 2022-2023 school year! Our excellent, dedicated, and caring staff are looking forward to welcoming you and your families into our learning community this year. We are grateful you are joining us for an incredible year of learning, building community, and creating memories of a lifetime.  As we create exceptional student experiences and instructional excellence for your child(ren), we look forward to partnering and engaging with you.

I am honored to be your next Principal at Shelton Elementary. I come to you with four years of experience as an Assistant Principal at Hackberry Hill Elementary and various other positions both within Jeffco and Gilpin Counties including Instructional Coach, Reading Specialist, Librarian, and First Grade teacher. I am passionate to serve others, support instructional excellence, and create an environment for the whole child to flourish. I look forward to connecting with you, building strong relationships, and supporting you in engaging with our community in the best capacity for you.

Our team has some new members for the 2022-2023 school year.  We also have one teacher who shifted grade levels.

Jane Bock is transitioning from 3rd grade to 2nd Grade

Cadi Gillette is joining the 5th Grade team

Colt Galloway is our Music teacher

Megan Goodpaster is our new full time Family Engagement Liaison

As construction continues for the next week, please call us at 303.982.5686 with any questions.

Kind Regards,

Tracy Krug
