Team Fleet

Questions: Please email me at

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year!

My name is Megan Fleet and I am so excited to be teaching 5th grade at Gold Rush Elementary and I can't wait to get to know your family this year!

Below you will find important information about upcoming events to help kick off our school year together. Please don't hesitate to reach out with questions as you explore our class website and start thinking about all things FIFTH GRADE!!! 

Student Information Form (also linked above) 

If you could, please fill out this form to help me get to know your child. We will find our time running short at Meet the Teacher, so this will help give me information prior to meeting your child and you. If there is anything personal about your child that you do not want to share with other families around, please make sure to include that in the form so that I can learn more about your child.  

Upcoming Events

Monday, August 7th









We believe that it is important for students to have the opportunity to meet their teacher and visit their classroom prior to the first day of school. Families are welcome to visit their classroom on Monday, August 7th, and drop off school supplies.  Students will take their school picture in the gym after they visit their classroom.

We want to ensure that families are able to spend time with the teacher in a small group setting, so we ask that parents sign up for one of the time slots shown above. Click here for our online scheduler which opens July 20th and closes July 28th. The password is digger. The sign up is first come first serve, so please sign up as soon as possible if you have a preferred time or you wish to align siblings’ times. School supplies ordered through the PTO will be delivered to your child’s classroom. Click here for a map of teachers’ classrooms.

Tuesday, August 8th


The first full day of school for students in grades 1-5 is Tuesday, August 8th. Students will meet their teachers on the front blacktop on the first day of school for an opening flag ceremony that begins at 8:30 AM. Click here for a map of your classroom location for our opening ceremony. All teachers will have a sign with their name on it. Students will walk into school with their teacher at the end of the ceremony.

Wednesday, August 23rd @ 4:30-5:00 or 5:10-5:40 


Classroom teachers will provide parents with an overview of the school year on Wednesday, August 23rd, during the following two Back to School Night sessions: 4:30-5:00 PM or 5:10-5:40 PM. The principal will share school celebrations, upcoming goals and important community information in the gym from 4:15-4:30 PM. We hope you will join us for these informative sessions.



Gold Rush has had tremendous success with our rolling start! If you are returning to Gold Rush, you are aware that all students enter the building between 8:20-8:30 AM and head directly to their classroom. Grade levels/classrooms are assigned a specific entrance and all entrances are monitored at 8:20 AM by GRE staff.   

Classroom teachers will show students how to enter the building and proceed to their classroom on the first day of school. Additional adults will support students during the first week of school.

It is imperative that students are not dropped off prior to 8:20 AM unless they have a previously scheduled meeting or activity as supervision is not available.


We also had great success with our staggered dismissal times for primary and intermediate students. Please see GRE’s dismissal schedule below.

3:20 PM


3:25 PM

First & Second Grade

3:30 PM

Third Through Fifth Grade

**Rolling carloop begins

At 3:20PM kindergarten students will be dismissed at their exterior doors or identified arrival location. At 3:25PM first and second grade teachers will walk students out the front door and wait until all students have been picked up. K-2 teachers will meet at the same place students lined up during arrival (see map above). At 3:30PM 3-5 teachers will walk students out of the front entrance of the building. Third graders will be dismissed out the front doors and fourth and fifth graders will exit through the back of the building.

Parents can park and meet their child at their teacher's identified location or use the rolling carloop. The rolling car pick up will start for all students at 3:30 PM. Parents cannot park in the loop or an unmarked parking spot at any time. We appreciate your cooperation!
