Sheldon School Board Hears About All-Star Community Designation

Sheldon-Schools-logoSheldon, Iowa — At the regular August meeting of the Board of Education of Sheldon Community Schools, Superintendent Robin Spears updated the Board on Sheldon being named a 2015 All-Star Community by the Iowa League of Cities.  Spears told the Board that the School District’s partnership with the City of Sheldon on the new Joint Community Sports Complex was cited by the League of Cities in Sheldon’s designation.  The City will be recognized at an awards banquet to be held in Cedar Rapids in September.  The letter notifying of Sheldon being named a 2015 All-Star Community can be viewed by clicking here.
