The Gold Ridge Kindergarten classes are sponsoring a canned food drive. They will be collecting non-perishable food now until December 19th. All grade levels are invited to participate. Donations can be dropped off at your student's classroom or the front office. On December 19th, all donations will be delivered to the Twin Lakes Food Bank in Folsom.Thank you for your generosity. Happy Holidays!
Please notify the office each and every day that your student is absent from school. Independent Study Agreements are available for planned absences of at least 5 consecutive school days (e.g. vacation). Click on the link or visit the school office to learn more about Independent Study requirements.
All students must turn in their lunch money directly to the office at the start of the day, before classes begin. Place lunch money (cash or check made out to Gold Ridge Elementary) in an envelope labeled with the student's first and last name and their teacher's name. This will give the cafeteria workers time to credit money to the student's account before lunchtime and will help students get through the lunch line more quickly. Click on the link to learn how to deposit money electronically into your student's lunch account.
Community partners treated every student at Rancho Cordova Elemetnary School to a spectacular surprise on Wednesday, Dec. 17:
Note: Last week’s tragic loss of seventh-grader Ronin Shimizu has prompted community-wide reflection on how we work together to respond to bullying. At the Dec. 11 Board of Education meeting, Superintendent Deborah Bettencourt provided remarks about areas the District has already identified for improvement. She also proposed the formation of a task force that will explore long-term solutions, and a formal call for volunteers will come after Winter Break.
Thanks to the generous contribution, students and programs throughout Folsom Cordova will continue to have the resources they need to succeed.
