-Golden Hill PAXING IT UP!!!!
This week we had a school wide assembly to discuss PAX with the students — we had a visit from the EAGLE during this time !!
What is PAX:
Golden Hill staff wanted consistent behavior strategies throughout the school. After much research, PAX was chosen. The staff is spending a couple of Saturdays in professional development learning about PAX. By September 14th, we will be a PAX trained school! We are very excited about this!!! PAX is the latin word for peace. In a larger context it means productivity, peace, health, happiness, and harmonious social interactions. PAX strategies help students learn important self-regulation and management skill while collaborating to make a peaceful and productive environment. Learn more at
Some of our great staff giving up a Saturday to learn about PAX strategies — Having fun!! GO EAGLES!

-OPEN HOUSE THANK YOU:
Thank you to everyone who came to open house tonight! It was a great turn out. Rest up, we will see you in the morning.
-What today was like for our Golden Hill staff (DAY BEFORE SCHOOL STARTED FOR STUDENTS):
During the day today, our teachers were working hard getting ready for our students! We are working on having students think deeper with the use of questioning. You can do this at home as well. Ask your child questions such as: “tell me more” and “what did you mean by that?” There are more examples below.
Please click on the link below for a message from our principal! See you soon!!!!
Golden Hill will be having its first end of vacation Ice Cream Social this Thursday. This is in response to the parent survey. Our school will look for a variety of ways to engage more with our community. Thank you to everyone who has RSVP’d. The date for an RSVP has closed already and we have reached capacity. We look forward to seeing those who have reserved their spot!!!
Great Concert, and Great Way to Wrap up 2018!
Greetings to All,
2018 is almost over…when our students return it will be 2019! We ended with a great week, including a wonderful concert – Our third graders also went to a wonderful theatrical performance as part of their literacy instruction, and as a great addition to their life experience.
Part of the district goal, and our Golden Hill goal, is improving student attendance. Many know the song, The Twelve Days of Christmas, we have included below our 12 Kids of Attendance. We have the top 12 students for attendance this year.
No absences, no tardy days, no dismissals. WOW! And yes, there are actually 13!
We really are lucky to have such a great group of kids and a great staff that supports them. From us, to you please have a safe and happy holiday. Whatever holidays or special traditions you have, we hope you find some joy, friendship, and make some great memories. And for those families who are feeling the pain of those who they won’t be there to share in this time, our thoughts go out to you.
Happy Holidays From…
