Greetings to our Golden Hill Community,
We are a large community and there are several staff and students with friends and family in the areas of Andover, North Andover, and Lawrence. All our support goes out to these folks. Let’s hope the all the displaced families are able to safely get back into their homes.
Also, this is another opportunity to be grateful for the safety personnel who work so hard to help us when these events occur. May they all be safe and may they know we truly appreciate their work.

Memorial Day Greetings,
To our Golden Hill Community on this Memorial Day, as the day ends and night slowly takes over, we hope you had a safe and enjoyable weekend.
Some of us may be driving home from a family gathering or “mini” vacation. Perhaps you were at a parade or other event commemorating those who served, or visiting the resting place of veterans to place a flag or flowers.
However you and your family spent this weekend, we at Golden Hill want to take a moment and thank all who are, and all who have served our country. So many men and women, and their families, quietly perform the often times unnoticed duty every day, day in and day out. We will all end this day and wake to a new one, as we do let’s keep a simple thought for these men and women – and those who served before them.

Matt brought the “Weather Warrior” van and students were able to learn how science is connected to every day life, and how some interest in how the world works can lead to a career doing “what you love!”
Also, I enjoyed the YMCA Educator of the Year Dinner – with two nominees from Golden Hill Ms. Atwood and Mrs. Pstragowski.
Great Kids ! Great School! GREAT TEACHERS!
On November 11th, at 11 am, in 1918 – the Armistice was signed to end the Great War. This is often referred to as “11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month.”
On May 13, 1938, Congress made this day a legal holiday – Armistice Day.
Many thought that this war would end all wars – sadly it didn’t and it became known as World War One – as the Second World War would follow. Many soldiers, families, and workers gave to this and other efforts to defend and protect our country. This of course continues today.
On May 26, 1954, Congress established this day – November 11th – as a day to celebrate all veterans, still calling it Armistice Day. In June of that same year it was changed to Veterans’ Day. This is what we now commemorate today. A veteran is anyone who served in the armed services.
To our Veterans, their families and friends, we thank you for your service to our country. This day has a rich history – I shared only a little. Every veteran who is today serving, or has served in the past, is a part of that history of honor and service.
The Golden Hill Community thanks you.
Greetings Golden Hill School Community,
It is an appropriate day to take some time and send out our thoughts and prayers to all those in Florida and Texas struggling to meet the challenges from the effects of both Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
It is the anniversary of the 2001 attacks. It was on this awful day that we saw so many first responders running into danger to save lives, and meeting the needs of the injured and despondent. We also saw how people come together and reached out to lend support and comfort. The natural disasters this month can be reminders of the incredible nobility, courage, and kindness that is evident in each of us and our neighbors.
To our first responders, service men & women, and our helping neighbors – thank you.
Greetings Eagle Parents/Guardians,

Mr. Michitson (Principal), and Mrs. Rodriguez (Assistant Principal) will be circulating through the building, feel free to say “Hi” and introduce yourself. They are there to talk with and meet you.
On the first day of school many kids are excited – some are nervous – some are both. We know this and will work to make it a good first day.
In addition, during the first week of school there is a great deal of car traffic. Although we all have somewhere to be, safety is number one. Staff is there to make sure students get to school safely. So, plan accordingly, as it may be time consuming for those first days. School starts at 9am, staff is on morning duty at 8:45.
Please make sure to check the Haverhill Public School web site for the Student Handbook, and be sure to sign and return the Golden Hill Addendum, which goes home the first week along with a proof of residency form.
