    Read-A-Thon starts Monday, September 21st! With all of the virtual learning these days, let's put some incentives in the hands of our students for doing some reading without a screen and raising some funds while doing it. Since we are attending school virtually, teachers will be distributing student individual Read-A-Thon codes electronically. Students will earn a bookmark for activating their reader page. Popsicle pick-up/drive/thru parties will be given for the class in grade ranges K-2, 3-5, and 6-8 that have the most MINUTES read! Other prizes will be selected by students in the Read-A-Thon Prize store online. They get to pick their prizes this year!


    Once you receive the individual student code from your child's teacher, you can use this link to activate your reader’s personal page:

    Help us raise funds for technology, library, and continued efforts to provide support for all of our students and faculty. Thank you!!




    Join us for Dine to Donate at Blaze Pizza in Gold River next Wednesday, September 30th.  A portion of your purchase will go back to GRDC! A flyer will be forthcoming. Thank you for your support!

    **Art to Remember**  

    Hi families and friends, Our school is participating in a creative fundraiser with Art to Remember that allows you to purchase keepsake products customized with your child's art. There are over 50 products and many are less than $15. These make great gifts and a percentage of every purchase goes right back to our school. The exciting part is that you can select any piece of artwork from home! You can use art from e-learning, choose a piece from earlier in the year, or create something new. Just click on the link below, search for your child’s name, and upload the piece of artwork you selected. You can upload additional pieces and save them in a digital family gallery. Paper is available in the office and is better quality if you would like to pick some up. The deadline to turn in art by hand back to office is Friday October 2nd. Or you can upload online by October 5th. There are tons of art lessons on the Art to Remember website (Art to Remember Link) if you would like help with what to create.  Have fun creating! call or text Tivona with questions 916-718-5453



    The BoxTop for Education program is changing. You can now scan the barcode on your receipts through the BoxTop App and it will automatically load the credit to GRDC. Please click on the link below to view the electronic flyer that explains how the new process works.
