PTO Reminders
Students Thank the PTO

Dear Gold Rush PTO,

Guess What?  From the Fall and Spring Book Fair got $11,000.  Gold Rush is using that money to buy new books for the classrooms and the Library. We got several different categories of books.  For instance, we got history, mystery, nonfiction, and fiction books.  More specifically, we received 20 ebooks (which Mrs. Golish is really excited about), 100 scholastic books, 500 paperback and 16 scholarship books!  From the Fall Book Fair we got $4140, and $2172 from the Spring Book Fair. In all the total balance was $5622.  All that money will be going toward books for the classrooms and the Library.  Each class got about 70-80 new books.

In the end, we got a lot of money and a lot of new books.  Thanks for buying books for Gold Rush and your kids.  It helped us get books and read more.

Seeking Gold Rush Family Businesses 

We are currently looking for sponsors for next year’s Gold Rush t-shirts.  In order to provide every student with a free shirt, we need your help!  We are reaching out to our school community to help us locate local businesses who would like to be featured on the back of our school t-shirt.  We would like to limit our sponsors as much as possible to businesses owned by Gold Rush families and local Parker businesses.  If you are interested, or know someone who may be interested in being a sponsor, please contact the PTO at
