It's my first day at Shelton
The temperature wasn’t the only thing hot the last two weeks. Shelton School’s campus heated up with back-to-school spirit as soon as students entered the door for a Meet the Advisor event on August 19th and for the first day of school on August 20th.
Shelton started the year with 929 students from 100 different zip codes, 259 faculty and staff from 82 zip codes, and a Class of 2019 comprising 77 seniors.
Spirit wear sales in The Corral school store were the highest ever, and selfie photos were all the rage. Fall classes began, as did special activities, including book picnics, band and drumline recruitment, first sports scrimmages and games, and more.
Shelton Parents’ Association and the Shelton Dads’ Group held their first gatherings to announce a fall lineup of activities, including a dinner for new parents, tailgate parties, a golf tournament to raise money for tuition assistance, and a campout for dads and kids at Sky Ranch in East Texas.
The school held its first good neighbor event by hosting a community affairs informational meeting for Dallas Area Rapid Transit’s (DART).
“We’re off to the races, and the finish line is nowhere in sight,” said Suzanne Stell, Executive Director. “On every front, all systems are ‘go’ for an exciting 2019-20 year. It’s great to feel all the excitement when we have students, families, faculty and staff, and community coming together in one space.”
