Senior Jacob Freudenthal is featured Shelton speaker
Shelton School hosted its annual Grandparents’ Day on November 21. 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. Some 1,200 guests were in attendance this year.
Shelton Ambassadors greeted grandparents upon arrival. The Thundering Herd band performed as guests enjoyed a Continental breakfast. The morning entertainment featured The Vocal Charge Upper School show choir, all Shelton spirit organizations, Lower School musicians and Shelton’s drumline. All veterans were recognized for their service and presented with certificates to redeem in Shelton’s school store.
Senior Jacob Freudenthal was featured speaker. He shared his educational pathway, experiences as a dyslexic, and his resilience and successes as a student.
Grandparents next attended a mini-school, met teachers and learned firsthand about the studies and activities of their grandchildren.
Shelton’s Parents’ Association coordinated the special day. Co-chairs were Margaret Walsh and Brandy Stafford
