John L. Golden Elementary School

Message From The Principal

Hello and welcome to John L. Golden Elementary. My name is Jeff Sipos and it is my pleasure to be the principal of this fantastic school. I am looking forward to meeting all of our returning families as well as those families who are new to the school or the neighborhood.

Golden is an exceptional school with a dedicated staff. Since 2002 when Golden first opened, it has been, and will remain, a great place for students to learn and to grow. This 2018-2019 school year will once again bring many opportunities for parent engagement and student growth I expect our student population this year will be close to 870 students in grades transitional kindergarten through the fifth grade.
I will always encourage parents and guardians to be involved in their child’s learning process by attending school events, serving on a school committee, volunteering at the school, and simply talking to your child about their learning. The rewards of parent engagement are many and undisputed. Our school PTA is just one great way to get involved, be inspired, add value, and to make a difference. As the start of the school year draws closer (Monday, August 6th) we will send you more information about school events and committees that you might find of interest.

Lastly, Golden is a school that puts students first. Student safety, well-being, and an education with a strong academic focus will always be at the forefront of every decision.

Mr. Sipos
