MEDS ARE VERY IMPORTANT

It is very important that Shelton is aware of the medication(s) that your child(ren) take both at home and at school. Please click HERE to complete a short medication questionnaire. This year we will collect this information online instead of at conferences. Please complete the questionnaire even if your child takes no medication. It will only take a few minutes of your time. Your answers will be kept confidential.  Thank you.

SHELTON HITS THE AIR WAVES DURING DYSLEXIA AWARENESS MONTH

Here's a great radio interview done by Anna deHaro with iHeart Media Dallas. The interview features Shelton Executive Director Suzanne Stell and Shelton senior Jacob Eckart. It was aired Sunday by all six of iHeart Media Dallas radio stations. What better way to explain to others about learning differences than to hear from one of our amazing students! Please share the show with your friends and family, particularly those who need educating on the topic.

In 1926, radium was a miracle cure, Madame Curie an international celebrity, and luminous watches the latest rage – until the girls who painted them began to fall ill with a mysterious disease.

STRATEGIES FOR ENGAGING IN YOUR CHILD / GRANDCHILD'S LEARNING PROCESS

October 30, 8:45 – 9:30 a.m., Shelton Parents and Grandparents are invited to attend a special workshop in the Dining Hall presented by former Shelton Head of Upper School, teacher and current Shelton Grandparent Judy Browne on the topic of Strategies for Engaging in Your Child / Grandchild's Learning Process.
 

This informal presentation is designed to share games and topics of conversation with your child or grandchild that can be incorporated into the activities of everyday life: driving in the car, at the dinner table or watching a movie. These conversations and games can help increase a child's language development, critical thinking skills and general fund of knowledge which will, in turn, impact the child's overall learning, social skills and self-image.
