Shelton PTSA is pretty busy these first few months of school when we hold two of our biggest fundraisers, the Coyote Chase and Coyote 5K Classic. We couldn't do it without the dedication and commitment of our event coordinators and all of the volunteers who jump in to help out.
THANK YOU to our volunteers and our community for making all of the great programs and events we sponsor each year such a success!
math & science night - wed, 11/2
Math & Science Night at Shelton provides an opportunity for our students to get exposed to amazing experiments and concepts that spark their interest in math and science subjects.
With support from dozens of community volunteers, including the CO School of Mines, our students embark on a journey throughout the school to see, touch, taste, smell and hear all kinds of things math & science!
This event inspires students to participate in our Science & Engineering Fair, this coming January. Stay tuned for S&EF updates!

$25K to shelton for technology!
Save the date: 2016-17 silent auction: Thurs, March 9th, 2017!
Ever wonder where some of the money PTSA raises goes? We're so proud to announce that due to the success of oursilent auction and other fundraising events in the 2015-16 school year, we were able to give Shelton $25,000 for technology last spring! (and that's not all, we were able to give teachers grants too!)
What did the funds buy?
The majority of the funds were used to purchase needed computer equipment. The funds:
Replaced the "dinosaur" computers in the the computer lab
Added more Chromebooks to our school-wide inventory
Equalized the iPad distribution across 1st grade
And purchased other materials Shelton would not have been able to buy without these funds.
Our students need to be prepared for 21st century learning in our global economy, as well as have enough computers in the building to take their standardized tests.
Since the district and the state can't provide the necessary funds to keep us current in our technology needs, we're so proud of our community who stepped up to fill the void!
