Principal's Corner

Thanks for supporting Team Shelton!
We couldn't do what we do without you!



Welcome to Shelton Elementary School where we . . .
equip and inspire students to become active and engaged citizens in a diverse and changing world.

Dear Shelton Families,

I am grateful for such a remarkable 2017-2018 school-year here at Shelton and am excited to start a new one as well!

Shelton is a very fortunate school to have the amazing parent support and community involvement. Because of our parent dedication, Shelton has created many opportunities for students to be successful. 

Shelton has a very involved Health and Wellness Committee and Community Garden Committee. We've begun planning ways improve our playground so it is more kid and environmentally friendly. Our Watch D.O.G.S. program is thriving and we have many dads, step-dads, grandpas and uncles volunteering their time daily in classrooms and on the playground. Shelton is an amazing school and has so much to offer all students.

Students are why we do what we do every day. Our students are our number one priority. We have many bright, creative, dedicated, compassionate, athletic and talented students here at Shelton. We know, as Rita Pierson (educator) stated in one of her seminars, "every child deserves a champion - an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best they can possibly be." That's what we strive for at Shelton. We want to be that champion cheering on your children helping them to be the best they can be. See the video here.

Families are also supporting Shelton every time they shop at King Soopers. Please continue to use the King Soopers cards as the money we receive helps with computers, materials for students, training for teachers, computer licenses for students, etc. If you buy groceries and gas at any King Soopers or Loaf & Jugs, King Soopers will donate 5% of what you spend directly to Shelton. You can participate in this fantastic program and help Shelton meet its fundraising goal of $20,000. Other family members such as grandparents can participate too.   The card comes with a $5 balance. You can download (king_soopers_card_form2__1_.pdf) or pick up an order form at the front desk and return it to Shelton.

I am looking forward to this school year and my fifth year as principal. I am also looking forward to getting to know all of our new students and families and having them join . . . TEAM SHELTON!

Thank you for what you do for our school. We couldn't do it without your support. Our partnership is invaluable.

Educationally yours,

Karen Brown
