In The News This Week…

Shine Shop - Tomorrow during lunch recess we will have our first Shine Shop of the school year. Students can redeem their Gold Cards for various prizes and even raffle tickets for a prize drawing to take place at the end of the month.

Golden Elementary Jog-A-Thon - Unleash Your Superpowers!!!  The $30 minimum sponsorship for a T-Shirt is due by Friday, September 29th, and will ensure T-Shirt delivery prior to the event.  (Don't forget to mark your child's T-Shirt size.)  There will be only one T-Shirt order date, 09-29-17.  All T-Shirt Prizes after 09-29-17 will be replaced by a prize to be determined by the Jog-a-Thon Committee. The remaining sponsorship money is due by December 1st in order to qualify for prizes.  We have some awesome prizes for the students. Please make all checks payable to Golden PTA.  For additional information and/or questions, please email

We are also holding a contest to reach our goal of 100% membership. The classroom with the most memberships will win a class party and its teacher will receive a $75 Staples gift card for classroom supplies. The second place classroom will win an ice cream party with a $50 Staples gift card for the teacher. For more information, please click HERE.

George Key Parking Lot is Off Limits for Golden Students

Please have your child(ren) wait to be picked up at Golden. George Key is a school for the most medically fragile students in the district.

Thank you for helping us keep all students safe!

Clip & Save Those Box Tops! Get those Box Tops turned in and earn $$$ for our school! Our first of two major collection dates this year will be October 27th. The two students who bring in the most Box Tops will win a gift card (one upper and one lower classman). In addition, there will be a party at the end of the year for the two classes (one primary and one upper) that have submitted the most Box Tops. Teachers all have a handy collection envelope in their classrooms, so you may send them in with your child at any time. For more info click HERE.


Golden is a “green” school, which means we look at ways to conserve resources and lessen our impact on the environment, as well as how to become more efficient in delivering information to Golden families.  As part of this effort, we do two things:  (1) maintain a school website ( and (2) send a weekly Green Sheet via email where you can access up to date information about what is happening at Golden.  You can also review, download, and print flyers from the online Thursday Mailbag located on Golden’s website or from the weekly Green Sheet email.

Our “green” program only works if parents take a few minutes each week to review the Green Sheet email and check the website and online Thursday Mailbag for information.  You will not be fully informed about what is happening at Golden unless you make this weekly effort.  We appreciate you doing your part to help us and the environment!

Thank you for helping us keep Golden “green“!
