For those of you visiting our website for the first time, Sheldon Academy is one of the "front doors" to the district and as our students enter our door, they will begin a journey filled with experiences that open their minds to not only new ideas, but also a deeper understanding of how they view the world around them. It is through this focus and with consideration for the best interest for each of our Jaguars that I will base every decision as campus leader. Together with our staff and community stakeholders, we will ensure that every one of our Jaguars is a college and career-bound scholar who is ready to compete in this ever-changing world.
Last year was one of the most challenging of my career as our students and staff were displaced between four campuses as a result of the hurricane. Our community was hit hard and there are still many families who are either not in their homes, or are living in homes that are not finished with the rebuilding process. Though the challenges were many, there were also opportunities for new learning and forming strong bonds which helped our Jaguars not only reach our campus learning goals, but exceed them! I am extremely proud to be part of this campus family.
This year we will continue our STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) focus throughout the campus. Our STEAM program is the foundational exposure for students who will be entering the new Compass School elementary campuses beginning in the 2019-2020 school year. It is truly an exciting time to be living and working in the Sheldon ISD community!
We are honored that you have chosen to send your child to our campus and we invite you to engage in our exciting learning opportunities and events with your entire family. Please be sure to visit our website and read our Jagger's Journal newsletters for news and special events each week.
I look forward to working with your family this year!
