  • Elementary School Redistricting Plan Public Meetings

    The redistricting plan proposal for Booth Hill, Elizabeth Shelton, Long Hill, Mohegan, and Sunnyside elementary schools was adopted by the Shelton Board of Education at their meeting on Wednesday, April 24, 2019. Please see attached PDF "new" school zone map which outlines all elementary school districts and lists school zones by street and lot.  Note that PDF map can be enlarged to determine street names and lot positions.

    All elementary school families that were directly affected by redistricting have been contacted by their current school with a transition plan for their students.

Principal's Message

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I hope you all had a pleasant and relaxing Thanksgiving break and are enjoying the bonus snow days. I would like to thank the PTO for bringing Kristen Gudsnuk to share her inspiration and achievements with our students. Miss Gudsnuk was a former Sunnysider and graduated from SHS. Her encouraging words, focusing on pursuing your passion and being your own unique person, set the tone for an electric morning. All students participated in her assembly, with grades 3 & 4 following with mini workshops on character development and improvisational comic writing and illustrating. We are looking forward to hearing when her next book releases.

Our holiday concert is scheduled for Tuesday, December 17th at 10:30am (K & gr 1 parents) and 2:30pm (gr 2-4 parents). The same concert is performed at both times, with all the students. Due to high participation by our families, we ask that parents attend the show slot for their child’s grade level. If you have children in multiple grades, we ask that you attend the 10:30am concert. This allows all audience members to have a seat and not stand during our concert, which may be distracting to our performers. In addition, students are expected to stay for the entire school day to participate in both performances.

As we continue supporting student growth and achievement, our staff and I found it necessary to look at ways to encourage homework completion. In the past years, we have recognized homework completion monthly with a PBIS Golden Tickets for our end-of-the-year raffles. While this motivated some students, it did not seem to motivate the entire student body. Through our work with Growth Mindset, Tiger PRIDE and Habits of the Mind, our hope is to develop students that are self-motivated, responsible and persevering. Our teachers have been working diligently to differentiate homework to meet the individual needs of our students. Although some homework is computer-based, teachers have the means to provide hard copies of homework if needed. Your support is greatly appreciated.

As we approach this festive season, I would like to extend warm wishes and thanks to the Sunnyside School community. This is a wonderful time of year to recognize and appreciate our differences. These differences make our communities so rich with character. Each day I look forward to working with the students, families and staff of Sunnyside. I hope that during this holiday season, you are surrounded by family and friends. Happy holidays and best wishes for a prosperous New Year!

Thank you, Amy Yost, Principal
