What We Do

We are a parent-led organization that supports the teachers and staff of Gold Rush Elementary,
while enriching the school year for our students and families.

Throughout the school year, we coordinate several community events such as Western Night and restaurant spirit nights, as well as partner with Gold Rush for their annual fundraiser, the Digger Dash. We also provide food for our teachers and staff during conference week and express our appreciation during back to school, winter holidays, and teacher appreciation week.

Our regular meetings are held the second Friday of each month from 8:45 to 9:45 a.m. at the school, but if you can't make the meeting, we still need help with many exciting events and volunteers outside & during other school hours.  Please check out our volunteer opportunities if you'd like to help:
