Senior Hero Ceremony

The Shelton Hero Ceremony is a time for students who are moving in to their senior year, the last year of high school and to recognize and honor a person who has been influential in their life. This may be a family member, teacher, coach, or other significant person. This person may not be an individual who is in the senior class and we strongly recommend students do not choose a boyfriend or girlfriend. Each student's selected hero will be invited to attend the ceremony August 29th. Students will be guided in English class to write a statement about the person they have chosen to be read at the ceremony.

Yearbook Information

Do not order your yearbook. It is paid for in the Senior Fees and will be automatically ordered by Shelton.

Senior Photos
Each Senior's Headshots will cover a half page in the yearbook.  The yearbook will feature your Senior in their Formal and Casual shots courtesy of
Holt Haynsworth. Holt is Shelton's yearbook photographer and a former Shelton student. A formal individual headshot will be made for the yearbook, and you'll also have the opportunity to plan a casual candid shot that will be used in a fun composite group shot. This shot is popular with both students and parents. It is important to get your session scheduled during the summer, as this ensures a smooth operation with the coordination of our yearbook. Photo sessions for seniors take place through August 15th. Our agreement with Holt is that your information will not be used except to contact you about scheduling and periodic reminders of deadlines, and to acquaint you with the photo packages offered.

Yearbook Ad
Seniors/parents who want additional space for quotes, accomplishments, shoutouts or photos can purchase additional ad space in the back of the yearbook.

Half Page Ads : $100

Full Page Ads : $150
