Dear Shelton Public School Parent/Guardian:
Next year, both juniors and seniors at Shelton High School are required to complete a Capstone project designed to prepare them for life-long learning and effective and productive citizenship through the opportunity to plan, complete and present a self-directed culminating project reflecting their personal interest. The Capstone experience requires students to demonstrate the most important components of their learning under the guidance of a mentor from the community. The Capstone Project offers members of the community the opportunity to share their knowledge and expertise with Shelton High School students.
The primary responsibilities of a mentor are to:
♦ Communicate clearly to the student what his/her role will be, when meetings will occur, and what time and skill limitations are;
♦ Assist the student in clarifying his/her goals and objectives and developing a plan that will result in achieving his/her goals;
♦ Be available to answer questions in a non-judgmental manner allowing the student to learn from his/her mistakes;
♦ Guide, encourage and oversee the student as he/she completes his/her project;
♦ Meet with student at least 15 hours outside of the school day;
♦ Help the student evaluate the entire process and the final product;
♦ Verify the time spent working with the student throughout the project on the Fieldwork Time Log.
With over 700 students needing to complete this graduation requirement next year, SHS needs your help. If you are willing to mentor a student in your field of employment or an area of expertise, please contact a Shelton High School Capstone Committee coordinator. We appreciate your consideration.

The Academic Support Center staff is hard at work. The students are having fun while they learn and practice letter identification, letter sounds, sight words, fluency, and comprehension strategies. It is with the cooperation and effort of the entire Elizabeth Shelton School community, educators and parents that the students continue to make literacy progress. The Academic Support Center is a place where learning and progress are celebrated.

We know this is a big change. We understand there is some disappointment, but we are committed to having a well-run, memorable high school graduation ceremony for our hardworking students. However, due to extensive renovations at Finn Stadium, scheduled to begin in May, our graduation ceremony will be held at Nolan Field in Ansonia. The date will be announced, as always, at the April BOE meeting.
Nothing is ideal about the situation, but this is a better option than doing it indoors.
The plan is to have the refurbished field ready for September. We ask for your understanding and flexibility. Together we can make this a positive ceremony for the students. That is our goal!

To the greater school community,
Everyone in the Shelton Public School System family is deeply saddened to hear yet again of a school shooting in our nation. We grieve for those students and teachers who were lost during this senseless tragedy. The Shelton Public School System continues to remain vigilant regarding the safety of our students, faculty, and staff. We will continue to work closely with our local Police Dept to keep our children safe! Below find information which may help you deal with this topic in your homes. Remember - the school system and our resources are at your disposal.
The SPS Wellness Committee is in the process of revising the current Wellness Policy and is looking for interested volunteers to join the committee. Parents, students, teachers and interested community members may apply to participate on the committee. To express your interest please email John Niski, Supervisor of Health & Physical Education at firstname.lastname@example.org Meetings are held periodically throughout the school year.
A warm welcome to our entire Elizabeth Shelton School community!
