New Student Social

The New Student Social is our special way of welcoming  students who will be new to Golden Pond School in the 2019-20 school year. Friends experienced The Golden Pond Way for the first time through duck themed, hands on games, art, cookie decorating, crafts and more.

Incoming students met teachers and new friends while playing   Lucky Duck, Duckpin Bowling, Egg Toss, Pin the Tail on the Duck and Chuck-a-Duck Bean Bag Toss. In addition we captured photos, painted murals, decorated cookies, made Duck Feed and   Duck Visors! We look forward to seeing all these new faces again this summer and fall! 
Fly Ups!

Fly Up graduation ceremonies are always a special time at GPS! The sound of the children singing their special graduation song on the pavilion filled the air ...  "Fly Up, Fly Up! Fly Up to new things, away we go! Fly Up, Fly Up! Fly upward and onward we go!"
