The Great Kindness Challenge: 
PAL will be hosting The Great Kindness Challenge the week of January 22 - 26. Students will receive a list of kind acts, which they check off as they do each one. The students who complete the list get to put their name on the banner and also are eligible for a drawing - one student per grade level will win a Golden T-shirt and a giftcard to Target. Kindness reigns at Golden!

Clever Dashboard for Students: Starting with the 2017-2018 school year, PYLUSD began using Clever to provide students with a dashboard of buttons to access online applications. Students login to the Clever dashboard at https://clever.com/in/pylusd with their district email address and password. The picture below is an example of what the Clever dashboard looks like. An application is started by clicking its button. The dashboard for a student will only show the buttons that the student can use.

Golden PTA Volunteer Opportunities: 
Are you a new Golden parent or a returning parent who would like to become more involved in Golden PTA? There are some great volunteer opportunities on the various PTA committees for next year. Click HERE to email our PTA for more details.

Procedures for the Newest Electronic Devices: 
Who would have thought that watches would be used for purposes other than telling time? That day has come! "Smart Watches" just like "Smart Phones" need to be off and in the student's backpack during the instructional day. At the end of the day, they may use the watch or the phone. During the academic day, calls to parents should originate with the teacher, nurse, administration or other school personnel. Back to the Future seems to be today!

Top Places to Work Honor: 
The Orange County Register awarded Placentia Yorba Linda Unified School District as one of the Top Work Places of 2017!!
