TEAM Husky presents Freshmen Orientation. TEAM Husky is designed to allow incoming freshmen an opportunity to learn about the campus, have some fun, make some new friends, and get a feel for campus life. This program will provide the incoming students with positive mentors, important information, time to meet other freshmen and upperclassmen, and participate in activities and teambuilding opportunities while being in a safe and comfortable environment. The students will be spending the day with outstanding Sheldon Junior and Senior TEAM Husky mentors. These students have had extensive training and have gone through a comprehensive application process. It is going to be tons of fun, so please be sure to attend! After orientation, incoming Freshmen are encouraged to go to Hot August Days to pay for their necessary items and take their picture for the yearbook. Remember to buy your ASB card during Hot August Days and start saving money right away. We will be open until 2:00 so feel free to grab a lunch and come back when the lines have gone down.
Hot August Days are Near!
Yes, it’s that time of the year again…Hot August Days!! Sheldon High School will be hosting its Annual Hot August Days on Monday, August 8th and Tuesday, August 9th. Freshmen and their siblings also have an opportunity to attend a special day set aside for them following Freshmen Orientation on Saturday, August 6th. Students will be able to take their yearbook and ID/ASB card pictures, pay for PE clothes and other items you may want, pickup their preliminary schedules, and show their Husky Pride by purchasing spirit wear. Students and parents are asked to attend the time period assigned to their last name (in the alpha breakdown below) in order to keep the process short and efficient. If unable to make the scheduled time, please come whenever you can. It is highly recommended that parents attend with students or students may come alone. Schedules will not be given to parents without students – we need them to take their picture.

The Elk Grove Unified School District has launched a new secure EGUSD Portal website that will allow parents and guardians the option to receive their student’s official academic progress reports and report cards electronically. Parents and guardians will also be able to securely update and change opt-out elections, such as directory information, posting of student photos, and movies and videos. Additional features and reports are planned for the portal in the near future that will provide parents and guardians with the opportunity to view other academic information about their student rather than receive printed reports through the U.S. mail.
