shelton book donation program
What: Have your kids outgrown their books? Consider donating them to Shelton's Book Donation Program. To date, more than 4,000 books have been handed out!

When: Anytime before, during or right after school.
Where: The Book Donation Cart is located just inside the front door, near the library.
Thanks for your support and to Debbie South for managing this wonderful program!

FALL BULB FUNDRAISER FOR OUR NEW SCHOOL & COMMUNITY GARDEN!
Have you noticed the new elk-proof fence on the east side of Shelton? This is the future home of our School and Community Garden!
We have raised almost enough money to build and plant our garden this spring, but we need to raise a little bit more money to purchase all of the planting boxes, seeds, tools, etc.
What: Buy beautiful fall bulbs (tulips, daffodils, crocus, paper whites, etc.) to support Shelton's garden!
When: Purchase bulbs by Fri, 11/18.
How: Click the button below, place your order, and Shelton will get 50% of the sales to support our garden! Bulbs will be shipped directly to your home if you order online.
We will also be sending order brochures home in Friday folders if you'd like to order in bulk with the rest of the school and avoid shipping costs.
If you order via brochure, you will pay via check in advance and bulbs will be shipped to the school and distributed to your child's class. Look for details in Friday folders.
Remember that garden plots will be available for lease to Shelton families and neighbors for a nominal cost. We'll be sending details at a later date if you're interested in leasing your own garden plot!
Golden schools foundation gives Shelton $
Thank you to ALL of our Shelton students and families who participated in the Golden Gallop this year! We had 58 people from Shelton race this year, which beat our number from last year!
Shelton will get a $100 prize to be used for purchasing PE equipment because we had more than 10 kids register. The Golden Schools Foundation raised more money from this event than last year too. The funds will go back to support all of the schools in the Golden articulation area in the form of grants and educational enrichment programs for students.
Way to go, Shelton!
