Good evening Golden Sierra Families.

We hope you are having and fun and relaxing summer.  The new school year is fast approaching and we would like for you to consider encouraging your child to get involved with extra and co-curricular activities, such as athletics and club activities, in the upcoming school year.

Research is clear that the more a student is involved the better they will do academically. So, please encourage your child to participate in additional school activities. 

As always, more information can be found on the district and school websites.  We look forward to seeing you and your children on the first day of school, August 15th.


Thank you and have a wonderful evening Grizzlies!
