Rivergold Elementary School Round-Up
COARSEGOLD – The Rivergold Hawks are always up to something interesting, and April has been no exception, with students from the elementary school taking field trips, presenting pageants, making pottery and so much more.

“History came alive thanks to the hard work of Mrs. Gina Hansen-Sedor and her students,” says Rivergold principal Cindy Simons. “It was a rewarding and successful night starting with the musical direction of Randy Hyatt and Christel Biasell and the Rivergold Band. The evening came to a close in the multi-purpose room with a fabulous presentation of Macbeth directed by Mrs. Walters.”

5th Grade Field Trip
The Hawks 5th Grade classes went on a memorable overnight field trip to the World War II Aircraft Carrier USS Hornet, at Alameda Point on the San Francisco Bay.
Students were under the guidance of Mrs. Julie Davis and Mrs. Kay Emmert and some “amazing parent chaperones,” says Simons.
“They were able to tour all decks, eat in the mess hall and sleep where the soldiers slept when out at sea.” The USS Hornet also participated in the Apollo 11 manned space mission.
Enthusiastic professor of college science and Yosemite Lakes Park resident Christian Vellandi brought some Science Mania to Rivergold for the Science Day Assembly.
Rivergold’s Girls “A” Basketball team was recently victorious over Coarsegold School, Hawks beating Cougars 18-10 on Friday, April 19.
“It was a beautiful sunny afternoon at Coarsegold School,” Simons tell us. “Spring has arrived!”
