STAAR testing

We are going to reach our goals and we will all celebrate when our final scores come back. We are on the path to creating EXCELLENCE at Sheldon Elementary.


We do not want any testing irregularities! So check students documents before turning them in and follow all testing procedures!

Thanks for all your hard work and all you do!

Sheldon Elementary Attendance

We saw a dip in our attendance this week...

At the end of week April 29th - 96.78%

At the end of week May 6th - 96.74%

Let's not slack on attendance as we move closer to the end of the year. It is important to end the year strong. Continue to encourage your students to come to school each day!

Remember....If students are not in school, then they are not learning.

Continue to make attendance a priority! Let's try to get above 97% this week!!!

Parent Survey

Our annual Parent Survey is now available on the website. Please encourage your parents to complete the survey.

If you are a Sheldon parent and your child attends one of the Sheldon schools, I encourage you to take the Parent Survey. This will provide feedback to how your child's school is doing. Parent Survey

The campus with the largest percentage of parent surveys completed will be treated to a pizza lunch! Parent and student survey results will give us feedback to improve our schools and our district as a whole.
