“Golden Hills Eagles learn with passion, act with kindness, and change the world!”

August 3rd, 2020

Golden Hills Students and Families,

Welcome to the Golden Hills family and the 2020-2021 school year!

We are so happy to welcome back our returning Golden Hills students as well as welcoming our new students!  The Golden Hills staff has had a very busy summer focusing on how to continue providing a program that addresses students academic and social-emotional needs. 

Beginning our school year with Distance Learning, we remain connected to our vision to provide a caring, safe yet academically rigorous program.  Our priority is to build a community and a connection to your student and you, their family.

Distance Learning will be different from the spring’s version of distance learning. There will be daily live interaction/instruction  between student and  staff : virtual meetings, live and recorded instructional videos, small/ whole group meetings etc...  Your student will be using  the Acellus program, which has a parent portal for you to easily check on their progress. The i-Ready program will also be used to allow for students to work on specific topics they need reteaching on.  Utilizing these programs and our BEST resource, our staff, your students will be learning! 

 During these times the partnership between home and school is even more important. Our goal is to work together with you to ensure academic success for your student.  As we get to know your student we will be modifying and adapting our instruction to best fit each and every student's needs!  Golden Hills staff is here to support you  so that your student can be successful academically and socially. 

Communication is key to this partnership, please be sure to update phone numbers and email with the office staff.  Please complete the online registration as soon as possible. The teachers will be reaching out this week to schedule a one on one meeting for August 12-15th. 

This year we welcome a new fifth grade teacher to Golden Hills, Ms. Russell.  She has over 18 years of experience and is a great addition to our Golden Hills family!

I look forward to working with each and every one of you to provide the best learning experience during  the 2020-2021 school year. Please feel free to reach out to me anytime: knapoli@palermok8.org or at 530 532-6000.
