    In order for your child to be considered for the program, you must fill out the attached application and return it by the deadline. After the application deadline, you will be contacted (via email) no later than the afternoon of October 25th. Students and parents will be invited in on November 5th for a screening process, which will take place at Mohegan School. During this process, preschool staff will be observing and interacting with your child, both with and without a parent present. Some areas they will be observing include:

    • Social interactions
    • Language
    • Attention to task
    • Ability to follow directions
    • Pre-academic skills: counting, sorting, positional concepts
      • 3-year-olds: recognizing colors & shapes
      • 4-year-olds: recognizing letters & numbers

    *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.

    Please return application to:

    Pay to Participate Public Statement & FAQs

    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 CampusParent 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.

Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Guardians,

   

Welcome to the Mohegan Elementary School Website. Our hope is that you find our website to be user-friendly, and after you visit, you will have a good idea of all we have to offer.

 

Mohegan Elementary School serves students in grades K through grade 4. The MOH staff, parents, and students work together to create an exciting and meaningful environment that provides all students with a wealth of educational experiences. Our students experience the excitement of learning in an environment that encourages critical thinking skills, problem solving, and the ability to access information. They work toward acquiring the technological skills for the 21st century. We strive to create the context of "lifelong learning" through the use of computers, modern research capability, and interactive media.

 

Our goal is to provide a safe and orderly school climate that promotes positive self-esteem, student commitment toward citizenship, individual improvement, and responsibility for personal behavior. In addition to the core academics, Mohegan School has a strong foundation in Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS), which guides our approach to teaching positive behaviors and celebrating the great accomplishments of our students.  Our monthly school-wide assemblies recognize students who are being safe, responsible, and respectful.  

 

 We value the cultural diversity that exists in our school by celebrating the uniqueness of each individual student and staff member. We teach our students that by respecting everyone, we become a stronger community.

One of the most critical pieces to student success is the connection between home and school. I encourage all of you to be actively engaged with your child’s learning. Our PTO is a wonderful organization that is always looking for more members. We do believe that “It takes a village to raise a child”, so we welcome your involvement. . We hope that our website will assist in the endeavor.  As always, if you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to email or call the main office at (203) 929-4121.

 

Sincerely,

Kristen Santilli

Principal
