Thursday Mailbag



If your child is participating in the AR program at school almost any book you have at home can be used   with teacher permission for testing. To determine the book’s level go to www.arbookfind.com.  Select Parent and then enter the book’s name in the Quick Search. The book should come up. Review   the book level and ask the teacher if you can use the book. We hope this PTA paid for service is helpful and increases your child’s ability to read and comprehend.

PTA Membership Drive is on! 
Anyone who cares about our kids can join the PTA! Every member makes the organization stronger... our goal is 100% membership! Remember the classroom with the most participation will win a class pizza party and second place will win an ice cream party! For more information, download the flyer HERE. So get those membership envelopes to your teachers by September 30th. Golden Elementary thanks you! Any questions, please contact Rosemarie Demonte.  
Golden Community Traffic Flow: 
For the convenience of community members, Golden has gate entrances for families that live off of Cartlen Drive, Mignon Way, and Heloise Way.  Gates for these communities will be opened at 7:35am and will be locked by the custodian or teacher at 7:50am when the start of school bell rings. At the end of the day the gates will be opened, and then closed 15 minutes after the end of school bell (2:30pm Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and 1:30pm Wednesday).

Many parents choose to park according to city guidelines and then walk into the school to collect their child. Please follow posted signs when parking and use courtesy with neighborhood families.

Please DO NOT use the community streets as a valet zone. Valet for parents staying in their vehicle is at the front of the school.

Please DO NOT park in front of any driveway or pull into the driveway or grass of a resident.
Golden Valet Program: 
Golden is very proud of our Valet Program. There are two lanes of traffic entering the driveway. When traveling west on Golden Avenue, a left turn may be made into the left hand side of the driveway.  When traveling east on Golden Avenue, you may enter the lot by turning right into the right hand side of the driveway.  The two lanes of traffic will merge into one lane shortly after entering the parking lot. 

The Valet Program is endorsed by the Placentia Police Department, who helped with the organization and training of 4th, 5th, and 6th grade student volunteers. In the Valet Zone, students may only unload from the lane of traffic next to the curb.

Following are some reminders regarding the general procedures for the Valet Zone:

  1. Please have student backpacks, lunches/lunch money, and student ready to exit the car before entering the drop-off area that is marked with orange cones.
  2. Pull up close to the curb so that valets do not have to step off the curb.
  3. Come to a complete stop in front of the valet for drop-off service, pulling forward as space is available.
  4. Make eye contact with the valet indicating approval for them to open the passenger door(s) for the student (s) to exit.
  5. Valets are to open and close the car doors.
  6. Students must exit on the passenger side of the car only (curbside)
  7. Student valets may assist with backpacks, etc.
  8. Right turns only are allowed when exiting the parking lot.
  9. The same flow of traffic will be followed at all times, including dismissals.
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.  
Student Directory: 
Golden PTA will be offering a Student Directory this year.  In our continuing effort to be environmentally conscious, we will be “going green”.  The Directory will be available via email; no hard copy will be available. To have your information included in the Directory, please click HERE.
