SPRING BOOK FAIR SUCESS
Thank you Mrs. Golish, the PTO and parent volunteers for hosting the spring book fair! We all enjoyed shopping for new books.
STATE TESTING SCHEDULE (CMAS) GRADES 3-5
All students in grades 3-5 take a state assessment called the Colorado Measures of Academic Success (CMAS) after spring break. This assessment measures students' achievement and growth in the areas of English Language Arts and Math. Fifth grade students are also assessed in the area of Science.

All intermediate students will test April 8 through April 12 and April 15 through April 17. Students will have at minimum one assessment per day. Please refrain from scheduling outside appointments during the testing window. Click here for additional information. We appreciate your cooperation!
Gold Rush received the Governor's Award for students' exceptional growth demonstrated on the 2017-2018 CMAS assessment.
