The School Leadership Team (SLT) Needs You!

Parents interested in serving on the SLT next year must complete this form to be included on the SLT ballot.

There are four vacant spots to fill for a three-year term beginning August, 2018. Elections will be held during SCARTS on Thursday, May 3. We’ll ask you to briefly stand and be introduced during the general PTA meeting that evening.

Please Register Rising Kindergartners Now!

If you are a parent of a Rising Kindergartner or if you know families who have a child coming to Selwyn next year, please urge them to register their student in the front office today!

Why the urgency? The number of teachers Selwyn can hire is based on enrollment numbers. It’s imperative that student enrollment numbers are known, so please don’t delay!
A birth certificate and proof of residency are all that are needed for enrollment. Immunizations and health forms are due by the first day of school. If you have questions, please call the office. Thank you!

Spring Book Fair!

Selwyn’s Spring Book Fair takes place in the Media Center on April 30 – May 4. Classes will visit the Book Fair during the school day. Parents will be notified when your child’s class will visit.

Families are also encouraged to visit the Book Fair during Selwyn Celebrates the Arts on the evening of May 3. Please note that the Book Fair now charges sales tax on purchases.

Please help us to make the Book Fair a success! Volunteers are needed to set up before the Book Fair, to assist shoppers and run cash registers during class visits, and to help clean up afterward. To see the available shifts and to sign up, please click here.

Eagle Dad’s Volunteer Day

Calling all our awesome Selwyn Dads! On Friday, April 13th we will be holding our Spring Eagle Dads Volunteer Day. We would love for our Dads to have an outstanding presence at Selwyn by helping with morning carpool, serving as lunchroom monitors and assisting with campus clean-up items. We have added some afternoon spots, so come grab your child(ren), help out around Selwyn and head out to celebrate your work with all the other wonderful Dads!

We also ask that you check your child’s class calendar to see if there is a need to help a special area teacher on that day for your child’s class. Come join in the fun!! Refreshments will be served in the parent room.

Let’s keep this great tradition at Selwyn going!
