Freshmen/Parent Orientation - Saturday, August 9
Freshmen and their parents are encouraged to attend orientation on Saturday, August 9. The student orientation will start at 8:00am in the Sheldon Gymnasium and the parent orientation will start at 8:30am in Smedberg's Gymnasium. The student orientation provides a great opportunity for freshmen to meet with Junior and Senior mentors, who will work with them throughout the school year to aid in the transition from middle school to high school. Key information will be provided for their success and tours of the campus will be provided. Parents will be meeting with other parents who have children at Sheldon, as well as counselors and administrators, who will be giving advice on how to help students meet graduation requirements and make the most of their high school experience. Immediately following orientation, at approximately 12:30pm, their will be a special edition of Hot August Days for freshmen and their siblings. Students will receive their preliminary schedule of classes, take their yearbook/ID picture, and pay for items they may need/want. You can buy your ASB card, which will replace the ID card, and get you into all home games free as well as significant discounts on spirit wear, dances and yearbook. It is also the time to buy your yearbook at the lowest price of the year. The doors will be open until 2pm, so we encourage you to go grab a lunch and come back as the lines are typically very long at the start.
Parent Volunteer Opportunity
Greeting Husky Nation!
We hope that your summer break is going well, and that you are all staying cool during the scorching days! We are compiling a list of adult volunteers for the incoming Freshmen Orientation Event on Saturday, August 9. During this event we need help with directing students/parents and we will be providing important information regarding classes and campus life/activities. Tentative time need for volunteers is 7:30am-12:30pm. Approximately 20 adult volunteers are needed to make this event a soaring success. Please let us know if you are interested and willing to assist. This request is open to the parents of current Sheldon students and Sheldon alumni.
We look forward to hearing from you soon. With sincere appreciation,

Senior Dedication Contract
SENIOR DEDICATIONS 2015 YEARBOOK
Purchase Senior Dedications for the 2015 Yearbook NOW. Dedications are a great way to personalize a senior yearbook, and make the memories extra special. We really want to be able to feature most, if not every, senior in the dedication space. To do this we have lowered prices below what it costs to print the page, lower than most schools in the are, and also have offered a small size that is more affordable. Parents can place a dedication to a child, friends can do a group dedication, clubs and organizations can also do dedications to the senior members. You can print this contract and submit it to the front office with payment to reserve your space. We did sell out last year and had to turn people away, so reserve your space now because once space is gone sales will close.

WHAT IS REMIND AND WHY IS IT SAFE?

School Loop is open prior to school start to allow communication between staff and parents/students. Please keep in mind that counseling staff has just returned and is currently working on schedules - THE SCHEDULE YOU SEE IS NOT A FINISHED PRODUCT - PLEASE DO NOT CALL. If the office is inundated with calls, we will need to remove access to School Loop until school starts. Preliminary schedules will be available at Hot August Days on Saturday, August 9 for Freshmen and their siblings and on Monday and Tuesday, August 11/12. This will be the only opportunity to work with counselors if you need a schedule change.

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.
