Shelton School hosted its annual Grandparents’ Day on November 18.  Always a popular event for students and staff, the day is scheduled prior to the long Thanksgiving holiday, when many visiting grandparents from out of town can share in the festivities.  A spillover crowd of over 1,000 guests attended.  The theme was Charging Forward.

The Thundering Herd band performed as guests enjoyed a Continental breakfast.   Entertainment featured all Shelton choirs, upper elementary music students, all cheer groups, and the cast of the upcoming high school winter musical.  The program concluded with a rousing performance by Shelton’s drumline.  Stage and technical crews were student-led under the direction of Clay Houston.

Veterans in attendance were recognized for their service and presented with gift certificates to redeem in Shelton’s school store.

Senior Brinson Ellard was featured speaker.  She shared numerous success stories at Shelton, including the announcement of her recent acceptance to Texas Tech University. 

Grandparents attended classes with their grandchildren.  They met teachers and learned firsthand about the daily studies and activities of their grandchildren.

Shelton’s Parents’ Association coordinated the special day.  Co-chairs were Margaret Walsh and Brandy Stafford, repeat chairpersons for the special occasion.  The day was a great send-off for the holiday season.
