GOLD BAR ELEMENTARY
As Gold Bar Elementary School Principal Jake Rodgers heads into his second year at Gold Bar Elementary, he acknowledges that he has learned a thing or two about his school.
“First, our staff works hard and they care deeply about the kids and families we serve. Second, the Gold Bar community is fantastic,” said Rodgers. “They are fun, supportive of the work we do, and are always willing to lend a hand to make our school-community even better.”
Rodgers is planning on continuing to guide the school forward when it comes to student assessment.
“We are also continuing to increase our capacity to help our students master the demands of the new common core state standards,” said Rodgers. “I have the utmost confidence that we have the right people at Gold Bar to take our kids to the next level and have fun doing it!”
Gold Bar Elementary School is located at 419 Lewis Ave. in Gold Bar. For additional information on the Sultan School District, please visit http://www.sultan.k12.wa.us/ssd/ssd.cfm?id=199.
