Highlights of the Week
Watch Dog Dads
This week we had our first four Watch Dog Dads volunteer at Gold Rush! As you recall, Watch Dog Dads serve as an extra set of eyes and an additional positive role model.  Click here to view a clip from the Today Show that shares the purpose of this national program.  Our Watch Dogs helped in the classroom, library and the playground.  If you are interested in volunteering to be a Watch Dog dad call the school office.  Remember one hour can make a big difference!    

Thanksgiving Feast
Thanksgiving is right around the corner and we would love you to celebrate the holiday with your Gold Rush family!  Come eat lunch with your child on Friday, November 22nd, during his/her lunchtime (see the revised lunch schedule below). Please note that the meal that is listed on the DCSD Elementary School Lunch Menu for next Friday will be offered on Wednesday.  We will be serving a Thanksgiving feast for $4.  You can purchase your tickets outside the cafeteria on the day of the event.
