STUDENT HIGHLIGHTS 

SHELTON HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS AND STAFF OF 2ND TRI

Congratulations to these Shelton High School Students of 2nd tri!

Social Studies 2nd Trimester Student of the Tri 2020-2021 Audrey Murphy (US History) She had a surgery mid TRI at Children's hospital, was out for 2 weeks.... Got 100% caught up, 100% attendance when not in the hospital. Responsible, hardworking and very dedicated student.       World Language 2nd Trimester Student of the Tri 2020-2021 Audrey Murphy Audrey Murphy has been giving her very Best in learning German online and a pleasure to have in class. She displayed great work ethic in completing lessons and an awesome attitude while in Connect Sessions. She was always prepared, asked follow up questions and practiced in the language. Audrey will continue to be successful in the future.      Visual Arts 2nd Trimester Student of the Tri 2020-2021 Kaylin Riggin  A student leader and exceptional artist. Kaylin exemplifies the work ethic and attitude necessary to be successful now and in the future. She completes her work in a timely manner with excellence and attention to detail. Kaylin is a pleasure to have in class and a student who will go far in whatever she chooses to pursue.        Entertainment Production  and Performing Arts 2nd Trimester Student of the Tri 2020-2021 Cody Reed His drive, talent and enthusiasm is unmatched.  He is an inspired student and a huge help for the entertainment production program.  He is even good at math!       CTE 2nd Trimester Student of the Tri 2020-2021 Bradley Haskins   I would like to nominate Bradley Haskins for CTE student of the trimester.  Brad has had a challenging year, like the rest of us but the reason I am nominating him is because of his commitment and resilience.   In addition to being isolated, Brad has suffered illness and injury himself and in his family and friend circle.   He continued to pick himself up every day and do his best to cope and juggle his responsibilities.  He has come through the last year stronger and still motivated to maintain his grades and achieve his personal and academic goals.    CTE 2nd Trimester Student of the Tri 2020-2021 Roman Watkins Second Trimester student candidate Roman Watkins is my clear choice.  We all struggled second trimester, students, teachers and admin alike.  Roman was no different.  Roman had planned to move to Running Start and planned that with his counselor.  Things went sideways and that fell through.  Unfortunately, Roman was removed from my and other classes.  He knew Running Start was not happening so he continued to attend class zooms and turn in required course homework.  I sent emails to the counselor but they were not responded to.    Roman was then told by his parents he was moving out of district and filled parents filed that paperwork, but that fell through!  Unfortunately he had been removed from my class and there was no way to credit his attendance or assignments.  More emails to counseling went unanswered.  Finlay a panic call to Mr. Caffey (not his counselor) got some action started.  He was re-instated to Mr. Fullington's and my classes.   Roman Watkins could have thrown up his hands in disgust and walked away from our classes.  This student understands what a sense of duty, accountability and perseverance means.  These are cornerstone traits for employ-ability and thus foundational to CTE instruction regardless of the specific course.  His maturity and sheer dogged determination to not only attend but excel at his classes, inspire of our failings, earns him a place of high regard.  I feel he deserves recognition.  Roman Watkins went above and beyond in every respect.  I nominate him for CTE student of the trimester.    Science 2nd Trimester Student of the Tri 2020-2021 Laila Hanson  Laila is always kind and considerate.  She takes great pride in her work and is very detailed.  She is always on time with her work and often works ahead.  She shows a special ability in her interest in health sciences and some day will make a great contribution to the field in whatever profession she chooses.     Special Education 2nd Trimester Student of the Tri 2020-2021 Alonyah Barnes  Alonyah has been consistently completing high-quality work from Day 1. During a time of great difficulty and stress for many students, Alonyah has quietly done everything that has been asked of her, putting a great deal of effort and thought into every assignment.      ELA 2nd Trimester Student of the Tri 2020-2021  Maddy Nelsen Her level of writing and analysis was amazing and was surpassed by her incredible attitude! She kept her camera on and loved dressing up, dancing and most important- smiling. She encouraged her classmates every day and helped to make such a welcoming online environment! (Which is not easy to do)     Physical Education 2nd Trimester Student of the Tri 2020-2021 Taylor Cooling    She attended every class connect session and earned 105% in PE class, meaning she took advantage of every bonus assignment as well as doing quality work on all her other assignments.  She was a role model of what a remote student should do to be successful.      Math 2nd Trimester Student of the Tri 2020-2021 Gabrielle Dellantonia Gabrielle came to the live sessions each week enthusiastic and supportive. She always participated to the best of her ability and demonstrated a positive attitude. Gabrielle stayed on top of her work and demonstrated a high amount of self-motivation and work ethic. She was a genuine pleasure to have in class.       Counseling 2nd Trimester Student of the Tri 2020-2021 Baylee Riggin (12th) “Exceptional student that goes above and beyond.

DISTRICT INFORMATION  

Important Information about Vision/Hearing Screenings

Vision and Hearing Screenings
The Washington Board of Health has provided important information regarding your child(ren)'s vision and hearing screenings.  Please see the links below to documents provided for parents of students who are distance learning.  These documents encourage parents/caregivers to watch for signs/symptoms of the possible visual problems in their child(ren).  It is important to keep up on your child(ren)'s well-child exams to ensure they have had the appropriate auditory and visual exams. 
Shelton School District's plan is to offer vision and hearing screenings to in-person learning students, once they begin attending school on site. Seventh-grade screenings at Oakland Bay Jr. High will begin next week (4/26) and be ongoing through the first couple weeks of May.

Vaccine Requirements
Vaccine Requirements

Now more than ever we are focusing on keeping students healthy and safe. This includes keeping students safe from vaccine-preventable diseases. The Washington State Department of Health and Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction govern vaccine requirements. Per these requirements, only students who are fully immunized (this includes actively becoming compliant with vaccinations) and those with medically verifiable documentation of vaccination or exemptions, will be allowed to come to school for face-to-face instruction. State laws and rules, as well as district policy, require compliance with immunization requirements on or before the first day of attendance at school.

Obtaining required vaccinations:

  • If your student has medical insurance, you can find vaccination providers covered by your insurance on the insurance website or calling your insurance customer service. Then you must call the clinic and make an appointment for vaccinations.
  • If your student does not have medical insurance, you can contact Mason Health: Health Plan Finder Susana Lopez at (360)432-7766. She can also help you find a clinic for vaccinations.
  • Local pharmacies may also provide vaccinations for children, with medical insurance. You should call the pharmacy before you go to ensure they have vaccinations available and that they take your medical insurance.
