Golden Hill Principal’s Corner

April, 2018

Dear Golden Hill families and friends,


Hello to everyone!

It is hard to believe that it’s April.  The weather in March was certainly a challenge. Who would have thought we would have so much snow?  Now April is here and spring is in the air!

We love to read together!

Here are some Golden Hill highlights from the past month:

  • Our students celebrated Pick a Reading Partner (PARP) with several PTA sponsored events. Our students and families who participated were excited to experience our PARP Bingo event as well as having community readers come into the school to read to our students. Our PARP Dress Up Days were so much fun!
  • We were also fortunate to have students from S.S. Seward visit and read to our students in Pre-K, Kindergarten and Grades 1 and 2 in honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday. They were great and our students loved the experience.
  • We were excited to host Career Exploration Days for our Grade 4 and Grade 5 students. We had an interesting mix of business people who shared their career knowledge with our students.  Thank you to all our presenters!
  • Our kindergarteners had their first Bring a Friend to Lunch and were so excited!  You could feel the love!
  • We held our Scripps Spelling Bee and Malina Grove was the first place winner for Grade 5 and Julius Viray was the first place winner for Grades 3 and 4. Congratulations to all contestants!
  • Our students sent  beautiful artwork to Valley View Nursing Home.
  • We held our kindergarten registration for the 2017-2018 school.  If you know anyone with a child who is eligible for kindergarten, please let them know they can still register.

Warm weather thoughts to everyone!
