Shelton Parent-Teacher Organization (SPTO)
Parents are an integral and vital component in our children’s approach to learning. We believe that parental involvement in school life is one of the many factors that enriches a child's learning experience and improves the school environment. Our mission is to help create a warm and caring community by being the bridge between family and school life. We believe that the Reggio approach is successful because of its powerful image and deep respect for the culture of childhood, and for its strong belief that children, teachers, and parents all work together in the process of building knowledge.
At Shelton Academy, parents are encouraged to participate in school-related activities, including those pertaining to curriculum and instruction. Volunteers may also be involved in assisting with school events and are encouraged to contribute their time and talent to organizing extracurricular activities and community outreach projects. The Shelton Parent-Teacher Organization (SPTO) assists in school events and fundraising activities. All parents are encouraged to join the SPTO.
We want everyone to feel that they are part of the Shelton community, and can match your time constraints and interests to needed tasks. Volunteers get to enjoy interacting with the kids, becoming friends with other parents, and accomplishing things that truly make a difference.
Events and activities planned by the SPTO include:
