Our school is proud to be recognized as a Leader in Me School after applying and receiving a grant from the Franklin Covey Institute. We believe that all of our students are leaders and allow them to demonstrate their leadership abilities in student lead action teams, student lead assemblies, student roles/jobs and many other activities.

The Seven Habits of Happy Kids is one of the processes we teach at Goldendale Primary School to promote student success. As a staff the habits are entrenched in our beliefs as the best way to improve academic success while decreasing student discipline issues. Please see the sidebar for a look at the seven habits and a brief description of each one. By following the seven habits we know that students will attain the Four Truths of Goldendale Primary School. These Truths are Timberwolves are Respectful, Timberwolves are Responsible, Timberwolves have Integrity and Timberwolves are Persistent.

New for this year is the WATCH D.O.G.S. (Dads Of Great Students) program. The Watch D.O.G.S. program is an educational initiative of the National Center for Fathering.The two primary goals of the program are: To provide positive male role models who, by their very presence, show a respect for the importance of education.- And to enhance school security and reduce bullying. Please see the sidebar for more information on the Watch D.O.G.S. program and come RUN WITH THE D.O.G.S.

This year Goldendale Primary School was recognized for an award by the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction and the State Board of Education for continuous improvement in English Language Arts (Reading and Writing). We are very proud of the efforts put forth by students and staff in receiving this award and look forward to continually educating well rounded students and citizens.
