Parent University: 
Parent University is a free, convenient parent education program offered by the district.  Classes start in early October.  Spots fill up quickly, so parents should sign up now to reserve their seat.  For a complete list of classes and to register for individual workshops, visit www.pylusd.org/parentuniversity.
Weekly Green Sheet Request Form: 
Golden Elementary is a “green” school, which means that we use email as our primary way of communicating with our families.  Golden’s Green Sheet, which is distributed electronically every Thursday, details weekly activities and information as well as links to documents you can download and print from our website.  This helps everyone stay in touch with what’s happening on campus.  The Green Sheet is managed by the PTA and therefore requires that each family “opt-in” to this database to receive emails.  Click HERE to follow the instructions to be added to the email distribution list.
