Student Highlights

Student Council Speak with Mayor Waid
Mayor Mike Waid spoke to student council this week about the importance of serving as a leader in one’s community.  Mr. Waid shared our responsibility to contribute and to make our communities better.  He then helped student council representatives plan events for our week of kindness in February.

Troops Thank Students for Candy Donations
Troops sent Gold Rush students a thank you card for the Halloween candy that they donated this fall.  They were so appreciative of the treats!

Students Continue to Enjoy Digger Dash Contributions
Students were excited about the new art materials that they received this week.  They will continue to use other artists’ work as models and inspiration as they create new pieces.

Click here to see Gold Rush students’ artwork created already this year.

Students were also excited to continue to create music using the new drums also purchased with Digger Dash funds.  We thank our families and the PTO for these materials!  They have already gone to great use!
