4th Grade Gold Rush Day is March 1st, 2017
Suggested Donation Per Child: $7.00
This donation will cover the cost of classroom decorations and items for the classroom General Store. Any funds that are collected in excess of the amount needed, will be donated back to the 4th Grade Classrooms for the purchase of materials. Food and volunteer sign-ups will be sent to you by your Gold Rush Classroom Coordinator.
During Ocean Air’s Gold Rush Days the entire 4th grade spends the morning on the field, visiting a variety of stations including Mining, Panning for Gold, Pony & Big Boot Races, California Trivia, and more. All the stations are manned with parent volunteers, and parents from each class bring a group of students from station to station. At each station, the kids have the opportunity to earn Gold Bucks. After the stations, each class returns to their own classroom for a big lunch (usually hot dogs, chili, cornbread, etc.) and for a chance to spend their Gold Bucks for prizes at the classroom General Store. Parents of 4th Graders, please join us and don’t forget to get in the Gold Rush spirit, by wearing your cowboy gear–cowboy hat, plaid shirt, jeans, and boots!
