WINTER WISHES
School will resume on January 7
Gold Rush wishes you a wonderful winter break! We hope you enjoy the time with your friends and family. Our choir, under the direction of Karen Petty, spread holiday cheer by serenading students and staff over the lunch hour. See a part of their performance below.
FIRST GRADE ARTISTS
ELEMENTARY PROGRESS REPORTS
Teachers are celebrating students’ growth as they complete fall Elementary School Progress Reports (EPRs).    EPRs will be released to parents on Saturday, December 21nd, at 8:00 AM through Parent Portal.    Directions for accessing the report card are shown below.

* Go to the Gold Rush Website   gre.dcsdk12.or g.

* Select the Parent Resources Tab.

* Select Elementary Progress Report (EPR). 

* Use your Parent Portal credentials to log in.

* Then click "View Elementary Progress Report" under your child's picture.


Your child's report card includes grades for content and learner characteristics. The following rating system is used to determine your child's level of performance:

Exceeds
Indicates a high level of achievement. It indicates a student has a strong understanding of the content/concepts/skills taught and it implies a student can demonstrate understanding independently and with very few errors.

Meets
Indicates that a student demonstrates an understanding of content/concepts/skills most of the time and with limited support. Students who are meeting standards make few major errors or omissions when demonstrating a concept or skill.

Approaching
Indicates that a student requires moderate support to demonstrate an understanding of concepts/skills. Students' ability to demonstrate their understanding of a concept or skill is inconsistent or infrequent, which indicates a partial understanding of the content, concept or skill. Students demonstrate more frequent errors or omissions.

Does Not Meet
Students who do not meet standards seldom demonstrate an understanding of concepts and skills taught. The student requires considerable support to demonstrate learning and makes frequent major errors when demonstrating his/her understanding.


You are able to view your child's information two ways - a highlight view and a comprehensive view. The highlight view includes a snapshot of how your child performed on core content standards (reading, writing and math) and how your child met school expectations of Going for the G.O.L.D. The highlights view also includes general classroom comments and some individual student comments.  

The comprehensive view includes information on all subject areas, including social studies, science and specials. The comprehensive view may also include additional content comments aligned to specific content standards. You are able to access both views by clicking on the links at the top right portion of your screen.  
APPLE AWARD RECIPIENTS
We thank Gold Rush families for nominating several staff for the District's Apple Award. We know that all of our staff are worthy of this distinction. We are proud to have Librarian, Gail Golish, and Special Educator, Tammy Simpson represent our school. We appreciate their dedication and heart and we couldn't be prouder of them both.
