To ensure that Grandparents' Day is a success we need lots of volunteers!


On November 15, 2018 (Thursday) we need volunteers from 8:30 am to 11:30 am. This is when we make the school ready for our grandparents and special friends.

Thereafter, on November 16, 2018 (Friday) we need volunteers from 8:30 am to 11:30 am. These volunteers will meet/greet and assist in the tear down that follows all the activities.


If you can volunteer on Thursday and/or Friday for these volunteer opportunities, please click here.


On Friday, November 16, 2018, during all the activities we need volunteers to sell Stampede Raffle tickets. The prize is a year's tuition at Shelton, so the raffle tickets are a popular item.


If you can volunteer on Friday to sell raffle tickets, please click here.



The Shelton Stampede Committee has SEVERAL opportunities for volunteers.


Big Board Chairperson – The Big Board auction occurs during the Stampede Fundraiser (March 30th) where parents bid on displayed items via iPad/cell phone.  The Big Board Chair works with past Big Board auction donors to secure donations and creates new relationships with potential donors to secure new Big Board donations.


Live Auction Chairperson  – The Live Auction occurs during the Stampede Fundraiser (March 30th) where parents bid on items in real-time and as presented by a professional auctioneer.  The Live Auction Chair works with past Live Auction donors to secure donations and creates new relationships with potential donors to secure new Live Auction donations.


Solicitation Team Members – These team members will reach out to businesses and request gift cards or other donations for the Stampede Auction.


Join our team and meet new parents, interact with Shelton's staff, learn more about one of Shelton's largest fundraisers, and share your ideas.  If you are interested in learning more about one of these positions, please click here.


Please note: these positions can also be shared with another person (e.g., 2 Big Board Co-Chairs, 2 Live Auction Co-Chairs, and 2 or more Solicitation Team Members.)



We want to ensure that our grandparents and special friends enjoy their visit on Grandparents' Day. Here's a great way to advertise your business and help us at the same time! 


If your business has any promotional/gift items, such as pens, pads, key chains, coupons, etc., we want to include them in our special goodie bags!


There will be over 900 grandparents and special friends in attendance on Grandparents' Day and this is a wonderful opportunity to promote your business to a large and appreciative audience.


Remember Grandparents' Day is Friday, November 16!
