Visually Impaired Program

As announced by Dr. Harris during the PTA meeting on April 29, we are excited to report that Selwyn will welcome the Visually Impaired program to our school next year. The “VI” program was housed previously at Eastover and due to a change in the middle school feeder pattern, we are fortunate to gain some new students in our school. We will have a group of 8 students joining us, ranging from 1st through 5th grades. We look forward to welcoming these students to our school and helping them feel at home at Selwyn!
Order A Selwyn Yearbook!

Yearbooks are on sale now! Please click HERE to order. Yearbooks are $15 and will be delivered to school during the summer since we wanted to capture ALL events from this very different school year. Rising 6th graders will receive information on the summer pickup days at Selwyn through the Eagle Email.  

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME YEARBOOKS HAVE BEEN AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE. You would not have purchased a yearbook earlier in the year or on the back to school form.  


If you have any questions please contact Kim Lineberger.

Red Ribbon Reading is Here!
It’s that time of year again! RED RIBBON READING is here! Red Ribbon Reading is a summer educational program with two goals. The first is to encourage reading, writing and math practice over the summer months so that students retain and build upon the skills they have worked hard on all year. The second goal is to fund the PTA operating budget. These funds are used for field trips, Red and Blue Day, Friday Night Lights, science lab, staff appreciation and SO MUCH MORE!
Similar to last year, all pledge information will be collected online. Please click HERE to fill out your child’s pledge form information. Please complete by Friday, May 21. Hard copies of the reading chart have been sent home in your child’s school folder. Additional copies can be found on the PTA website.
What you need to do now:
  • Set your child’s reading goals.
  • Ask parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, and neighbors to pledge an amount of money per hour of summer practice or make a flat donation.
  • Find out if your employer will provide a corporate match.
  • Record your child’s goals and pledges online HERE by May 21.
Please remember, we are not collecting these funds now…this is only a pledge. We will collect these funds in September 2021. 
May 24 - August 24, 2021: Read, Write, Practice Math and Record Your Hours!
