*All children who apply will have an opportunity to be screened, however NOT all children who are screened will be selected for the program – there are a limited number of spaces available. Please note there is a $2500 tuition fee for the program year. Due to the later start, a pro-rated fee will be observed for the new students who enter the program. However, an initial fee of $625 is due before the child can start the preschool. A tuition schedule will be sent to those students who are accepted. We thank you in advance for your understanding.

Superintendent’s Pay-to-Participate Public Statement - September 4, 2018
The Shelton Board of Education, due to a pattern of under-funding, leaving our students to learn and grow in one of the lowest funded districts in CT, continually needs to make due with less.
Our dual priorities are student safety and academic opportunities.
After reducing our workforce while trying to maintain a qualified, professional staff, we now must ask families to help support important programs in athletics and the arts. As the cost of healthcare, utilities, and labor go up our funding has not kept pace. We need the community’s help to provide for programs we cannot afford any longer.
We do not like Pay-to-Participate, and we will work with families to make this work, but with our consistently low per pupil expenditure (near the very bottom of the state-published annual listing of all school districts), we now need the direct support from the community to meet our legally mandated priorities, as well as traditional athletics and arts-based activities.
"Pay to Participate" will help keep our excellent programs in the arts and athletics sustainable.
A link to the specific details of "Pay to Participate" can be found on our website and on the attached Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document regarding “Pay to Participate”.
By the end of the first week of school (9/7/18) – parent/guardians will be able to electronically pay for their student’s participation in school activities via Infinite Campus – Parent Portal.
Through the Parent Portal – parents/guardians will be able to access individual student information regarding “Fees” and “Payments” similar to the way parents currently use the Point of Sale system for our food service provider.

We are off and running! I am pleased to inform you that all grade levels have completed our benchmark assessments and getting into their full academic program of work. In addition to daily written homework assignments, please encourage your child(ren) to read and review their math facts nightly. This independent practice goes a long way in reinforcing and generalizing skills learned in school each day. This year we had 80% of our Tigers participate in the Governor’s Summer Reading Challenge. Thank you again for your support and making reading a priority over the summer and every day. We would like to welcome Shannon Porter as our new Lead Secretary at Sunnyside. We have been fortunate to have Diane Flaherty in that position over the past year. We wish Mrs. Flaherty well as she takes on a new position at Shelton High School. If you need to contact the main office, please add Shannon Porter to your email address book – email@example.com .
