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.

After your great runs at the Shamrock N’ Run, keep your feet moving.  From April 1- April 30, 2014, the Fire Up Your Feet program will be hosting its 2014 Fire Up Your Feet Spring Activity Challenge for schools across California to encourage families, students and schools to work together and create active lifestyles that inspire all children to be healthy and physically active.  Schools with the highest participation rates will receive awards ranging from $200-$5,000.  Last year, Golden Elementary first effort at participation received a runner-up award.  We know that we can do even better this year! ClickHERE to register for the program and then track your progress during the month of April.

Time to Start Thinking About Kindergarten and Preppy K Registration:
If you know of someone who will be attending Kindergarten or Preppy K this year - Golden's Kindergarten registration is currently taking place. Registration packets are available for parent pick-up- make sure to bring proof of residency in order to receive a packet. 

Please note that Preppy K registration will take place at the same time as Kindergarten registration at those schools that have the program.  Parents will need to enroll at the Preppy K site they wish to attend.  For more information on registration, go to www.pylusd.org.

Be Sure to Check the Lost and Found:
Golden’s Lost and Found is literally OVERFLOWING with lots of cool jackets, sweaters, and lunch bags.  Even if you do not think that your child is missing anything, please be sure to check the Lost and Found in the MPR either before or after school as soon as possible.  All unclaimed items will be donated to charity over Spring Break.
