Golden Hill Elementary School
To Our Golden Hill Community,
Thank you all for your help and support of our Pancake Breakfast – and our Holiday Concerts. It was so enjoyable and fun to see the Golden Hill Community together having fun!
Our staff, and especially Mr. Davis for putting on a great concert, and all the “staff elves” that helped during the breakfast, did a great job. All of guests were welcoming and appreciative.
Happy Hanukah, Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa, to all our families and friends.
We hope as we head into a time of year of reflection, gratitude, and time spent with family that you are able to find some gratitude for the gifts in your life. We are grateful to have the privilege of educating your children.
Greetings From The Golden Hill Community,
As we enter into a season of thanks, remembrance, family, and traditions, our school sends our thoughts and greetings to all.
Many of us will be traveling, some short distances and some long distances. We will enjoy the company of those we care about, share laughter, and stories.
There may also be memories, some very fresh, of loved ones who are not with us. And, some may be struggling to meet their basic needs. It isn’t always easy to be grateful. To everyone who may not be feeling especially grateful, our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Our community does what it can to help, and with our PTO we gave away “Thanksgiving Baskets.” We hope this might help bring a little more to those with some struggles.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving – Everyone!

Fun News For The Fourteenth Of November…
Matt Noyes the meteorologist for NECN and NBC Boston, visited Golden Hill School today.
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.
