Gold Rush Elementary School

Please know that your child's safety is our top priority. We take several precautions, including locking all exterior doors, practicing safety drills, and engaging in daily visits with Parker Police and District Security to ensure your child's well-being.

I wanted to share resources with you that help guide your ongoing conversations with your child. Please know that we always address students' concerns individually, and we do not provide specific information. We always reassure children that they are safe at school.  Please feel free to contact the school if you have any questions or concerns.

Teachers are celebrating students’ growth as they complete spring Elementary School Progress Reports (EPRs). EPRs will be released to parents on Wednesday, May 29th, through Parent Portal. You will be able to access your child's EPR on this date by following the directions below.

· Click on the Parent Resources Tab

· Select Parent Portal and use your credentials to log in.

· Click "View Elementary Progress Report" under your child's picture

As you may recall, you are able to view your child’s information in two ways. The highlights page includes a snapshot of how your child performed on content standards (reading, writing and math) and how your child met our school expectations of Going for the G.O.L.D. Also included in the highlights page are general classroom comments and individual student comments. 

The comprehensive view allows you to see how your child did on all subject areas and specials. You are able to view any additional comments for the specific content areas under the comprehensive view. You are able to access both formats by clicking on the links at the top of the EPR. 
We were excited to welcome our incoming kindergartners for the 2019-2020 school year during Kindergarten Orientation this week. Students met key members of our school community and learned about the new and exciting experiences they will have during their first year. Students ended the evening by taking a scavenger hunt around the school. We cannot wait for our youngest students to start in the fall!
Girls on the Run, a new after school running club, facilitated a school fundraiser to support the Dumb Friends League. Students brought in change to wear their pajamas. We were blown away by students' spirit and generosity! Our school raised $1,650 for the organization! We thank Girls on the Run for organizing this event!
