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.
