From The Comics Continuum, here are descriptions of the deleted scenes featuring Shawn:

* Storm Teaching Class: This lengthens the scene where John and Bobby use their powers, and Bobby tells Rogue, "Welcome to Mutant High." It includes Jubilee answering a question thrown to the class from Storm, and Kitty asking Rogue about Logan.

* Logan Notices Jean and Cyclops/Rogue in Classroom with Bobby and Storm: While Scott is teaching the young mutants about an engine, Logan notices that he and Jean are holding hands. Bobby asks Rogue to dinner, and, after the class is cleared, Rogue and Storm have a conversation, which includes Rogue asking Storm if Professor Xavier can "cure" her.

* Bobby Walks Rogue to her Dorm Room/Xavier and Jean in Cerebro: The significance of the first part is that Bobby tries to pick something off Rogue's face and she jerks back, not wanting to make physical contact.
