Gold Rush Elementary School
December 6, 2019
Gold Rush was recognized by the Board of Education Tuesday for receiving the 2019 John Irwin School of Excellence Award. Gold Rush was recognized by the State of Colorado for exceeding academic expectations in Math, English Language Arts and Science as measured by the Colorado Measures of Academic Success (CMAS) Assessment. We are extremely proud to receive this distinction, and we thank our students, staff and parents for their dedication.
We were excited to welcome incoming kindergarten parents during Kindergarten Registration. I was able to share how we challenge critical thinkers to take risks, honor differences and care for others. Click here for the parent presentation. If you have an incoming kindergarten student and you were not able to make it Thursday, please complete the registration paperwork by Wednesday, December 11. Completed registrations can be turned into the office or emailed to our registrar Christi Dismang at
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:

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.

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.

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.  
Check out students' that are currently displayed outside the art room. Students' pieces are truly stunning. We thank our students and Mrs. Dazzio for sharing their talent and creativity.
