Dear Students and Families,
Welcome to Shelton Intermediate School (SIS) Community. The “Middle School” years are a unique period of time during which you will notice a tremendous amount of social, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth. To assist your child during their years spent at SIS, we have developed this handbook. Please take the time to read and review this handbook as a family to ensure a successful school year. This handbook will prove to be a valuable resource to which you can refer to for a variety of questions regarding policies, practices, procedures and routines which exist at SIS. Our goal is to provide our families with the most up to date information, so please visit the district and school websites regularly. Infinite Campus provides you with a great deal of information regarding your child. You can check grades, attendance and classroom assignments. If you have not already done so, please download the Infinite Campus app to your smart device so you can receive regular notifications about your child’s progress. Our school also regularly posts the wonderful opportunities your child will experience at SIS on our Instagram page, please follow us at @sheltonintermediateschool.
At Shelton Intermediate School, our goal is to meet the needs of the whole child and enable our students to grow and develop to become “confident and well prepared to adapt and thrive in a rapidly changing global society”, as stated in our District’s Vision of a Graduate. As a school, we will focus on utilizing the District’s Vision of a Graduate to help provide your child with numerous experiences to help build a variety of skills that go beyond the school walls such as creativity, innovation, collaboration and empathy. In addition, we provide student structured opportunities to build a sense of initiative and self direction in all areas ranging from academic performance to behavior. Every effort is made to ensure that students are provided with a safe and positive environment in which learning can take place. We promote respect and acceptance while teaching our students to appreciate diversity in all of its various forms. Our academic programs are designed around a set of learning principles, or core beliefs, which frame the concept of “learning for understanding” in which students are challenged to apply their knowledge in a variety of contexts.
A partnership between home and school is critical to ensure the success of each child. It is for this reason that we encourage families to be involved in the education of their respective children. Maintaining open lines of communication will allow us to work together to do what is in the best interest of your child.
Please allow us to extend our best wishes for a healthy, productive, and successful school year. If you have questions or concerns, we encourage you to contact us so they can be addressed in an appropriate and timely fashion.
