WASC Parent Survey
We ask all Sheldon parents to help us in our WASC Accreditation by completing the parent survey. Please visit http://bit.ly/shsparenteval and complete the online parent survey. This survey provides valuable feedback for our self-study that supports the accreditation process. Students and staff will also be completing surveys at a later date. Thank you.
SHS ALS Ice Bucket Challenge
Mr. Grivel was challenged by Mrs. Siever to accept the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS. The challenge has now been brought by Mr. Grivel and ASB to the entire campus. Thursday is the last day to put money in the container for the department you would like to see challenged for Friday during lunch. As of Wednesday, English is the leading department, followed by ASB, and then PE. Our totals are low and it wouldn't take much to change the standings with just a few small donations. Please help us support the fight against ALS and bring whatever you can to donate and see your favorite teachers take on the Ice Bucket Challenge Friday. Remember, Thursday at the end of second lunch is your last chance to donate.
Sober Grad Committee Looking for New Members
The Sober Grad Committee is having their first meeting of the year on Wednesday, August 27 at 6:30pm in the Counseling Office at SHS. This is a parent run committee that is responsible for planning and coordinating the Sober Grad Event at Golfland Sunsplash following graduation.
Each year, the Sober Grad Committee works with local businesses, school administration, and You, our Sheldon Community to deliver a safe, fun and memorable event for our graduating Seniors. Events must be planned well in advance (due to reserving the venue, ensuring entertainment is booked and available, funds are raised for raffles, food, and treats for the students during the event, and to recruit volunteers who are able to work the whole or partial shift which runs over the course of 6-8 hours). Ask an alumni who attended the event how they enjoyed the experience and you will get a positive reply about the fun, activities, and safe environment that was provided for them and their friends.
Ideally, the committee will consist of parents of all grade levels so there is continuity as students/parents graduate and move on. We are asking that you consider serving on the Board or as a Volunteer even if your student is a Freshman, Sophomore, or Junior this academic year. Your time will be well spent understanding the organization and fundraising activities that need to take place as well as the purpose of the Committee and why it strives to ensure that as many students who want to participate with Sober Grad Night can participate.
If you are not able to attend tomorrow's meeting but are interested/have questions regarding Sober Grad Committee service, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Elk Grove Unified School District has launched a new secure EGUSD Portal website that will allow parents and guardians the option to receive their student’s official academic progress reports and report cards electronically. Parents and guardians will also be able to securely update and change opt-out elections, such as directory information, posting of student photos, and movies and videos. Additional features and reports are planned for the portal in the near future that will provide parents and guardians with the opportunity to view other academic information about their student rather than receive printed reports through the U.S. mail.
