Shark Tales

Dear Shelton View Shark Families,

Happy May! May is staff appreciation month. First, a HUGE “Thank You” goes to our PTA for their support and generous appreciation efforts toward staff! Second, please thank a staff member who has made a difference this year or in years past for your children. Shelton View Elementary has a most excellent and dedicated staff who work hard to help all Shelton View Sharks succeed! An ENORMOUS Thank You to our Shelton View Staff!

This year has been like no other I’ve experienced in 40+ years as an educator. It’s been an exciting adventure, not unlike Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride! Some students arrived back to in-person learning ready academically for the year ahead, while others struggled with grade level concepts. In response to this, additional time and support was added to the classrooms across all grade levels. Students have worked hard to catch up and excel in their learning and growth! May is the month state testing gets underway for our 3rd-5th grade students from 5/11-5/31. We are looking forward to sharing these results with you in our 2022-2023 School Report to the Community in our fall newsletter. It’s important that students get their needed rest, nutrition, and your encouragement to do their best and show what they know!

Socially, returning to school after nearly two years of no large group interaction brought with it a wave of turbulent waters and many challenges on the playground as students learned how to play together in ways that: Show respect, Work hard (even at play), Include others, and Make safe choices! SWIM with the SHARKS! Three additional playground supervisors were hired to help ensure safety on the playground while our staff and the Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) team has focused on systems of support and re-teaching when unexpected behaviors have come up. Our year has shown us that students need to be explicitly taught the rules of engagement on the playground. This has culminated in a video created by Teri Standley, a school support assistant and member of the PBIS team. The plan moving forward is to create videos of expectations for all common areas of the school.  Click here to view our Recess Expectations, which will be shown to all students in the next week.

As in previous years in May, the staff will be busy with the work of creating balanced class lists for the 2022-2023 school year.  Fill out the Parent Input Form if you’d like the opportunity to share with us the teaching style you believe fits your child best, as well as any “friend conflicts” you’d like to have us consider when placing students into next year’s classrooms.

Plans are underway for the selection of a new principal at Shelton View Elementary! Projected for May 10th, a team of school, community, and district representation will begin with the first step in the process of interviewing candidates. Two or three successful candidates will move to the next step in the process, and ultimately by the end of June or before, you’ll join staff and me in welcoming the successful candidate as the Principal of Shelton View Elementary!
