Dear Golden Hill Elementary School Friends and Families,

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! This is Mrs. Piche and I am looking forward to meeting all of you. I had a very enjoyable summer relaxing and getting ready to begin this new adventure at Golden Hill. I hope everyone had a wonderful and relaxing summer.  I am excited to hear about everyone’s summer fun! We have so many great things in store for this year! Here is some important information as you prepare for the new school year:

  • Our office opens on Wednesday, August 1st! Our hours will be 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
  • Class rosters will be posted on Friday, August 10th at 6:00 PM in the office window.  Due to fluctuating enrollment, no class changes will take place the first two weeks of school.  Class changes will be considered on a case-by-case basis starting on Monday, August 27th.
  • School begins on Monday, August 13th.
  • There will be lots of traffic, so please plan to leave early to give yourself plenty of time to get here safely.

  • PTA Meeting on Wednesday, August 15th at 9:00 AM. Come have a cup of coffee with us, connect with other GH parents, and learn about PTA’s vision for the 2018-19 school year.
  • Back to School Night will be held on Thursday, August 16th.  We hope that you will join us from 5:30 to 7:00 PM.  I will be introducing our staff and the new PTA Board.  You will have a chance to visit your child’s classroom and meet with our phenomenal teachers.


I look forward to welcoming you all back on Monday, August 13th.  Enjoy the remainder of summer vacation! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact myself or the front office at 714-447-7715
