Dear Students, Parents, and Community Members,

Golden is such a special place! As I retire this year, Golden is imprinted on my life forever.

I am inspired by the children at Golden. This year’s Aladdin production had over 200 students participate. The students sang and danced, showing their incredible versatility. The initial mathematics adoption was challenging as students had to describe how to solve a problem, in addition to completing the computations. In just a few short years, students have become such problem solvers. Now I watch students completing CGI challenges with enthusiasm. Mathematics is applied to house design or mission geometry or zoo creation, creatively using calculations of area and perimeter in a way that will not be forgotten!

I am inspired by the caring families at Golden. I’ve seen first-hand how families working together in a caring community of support can create a world class education for children. I’ve observed children getting one-on-one help in the classroom by parent volunteers, and also parent volunteers working in groups on Golden Eagle University. Walk-Through Assemblies with enthusiastic George Washington or regal Cleopatra, are provided with resources from the Parent Teacher Association (PTA). Families handing out water bottles or running with students during the Jog-A-Thon ensure that Golden’s one fundraiser enables the school to provide for the needs of all. PTA funded Chromebook carts are used constantly by students. Enriching field trip experiences are enjoyed by all our students, funded by families supporting our PTA.

I am inspired by the staff at Golden. Golden teachers are truly exceptional. I’ve observed first grade students showing classmates four different ways to add up to the number seventy-five using smartboard technology and fourth grade students in multi-class teams completing technology bootcamp. Techy Camp was organized by the fourth grade teaching team, most of whom have attended one or more Google Summits. Students are using technology as a transparent tool to show learning in so many unique ways from virtual museums to voyages up the California mission trail  to WeVideos of Black History Month. Our team support staff - from office staff to aides to noon supervisors - care for the children, genuinely enjoy working with our Golden Eagles. We are blessed to have a caring and supportive staff.

I am inspired by the entire Golden community. Golden is a 2018 California Distinguished school, a 2016 Golden Ribbon school, a 2014 California Distinguished school and is one of just a handful of school nominated to write a National Blue Ribbon application.

I am inspired by my own family. With my next adventure, I will carry with me warm memories of each of you. As you reflect on the adventures you have shared, remember… you are part of Golden Eagle Country where ALL students SHINE!

Warmest Regards from Your Proud Principal,

Mrs. Roann E. Turk
