Welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year

Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to 5th grade and the 2017-2018 school year. I am so excited to be teaching 5th grade at Gold Rush and to meet all of you! I have great expectations for each and every student and know that this will be a successful and exciting year. I can’t wait to get to know all of you, but first, here are a few things you should know about me.
I was born and raised here in Colorado and there is so much I love about our beautiful state. I enjoy hiking, skiing, and spending time with my family and friends. Last year I completed grad school with a Masters in Reading and Literacy. It is amazing all the things I can do with some more time on my hands. I enjoyed spending some time in Vail this summer. I also flew out to Arizona to visit my mom who lives in Scottsdale.
Additionally, I graduated from CU-Boulder and my first full time job was teaching the 5th grade in Fort Morgan, Colorado. This will be my fifth year teaching 5th grade at Gold Rush Elementary. I am grateful to be a part of the Gold Rush community and a part of the 5th grade team. 5th grade is an exciting time filled with many engaging learning opportunities. This year you can look forward to learning about our human body systems, exploring Jamestown, and continuing to practice our reading strategies. There will be challenges along the way as I push each of you to do the best that you can every day!
I am looking forward to what the year holds and I am very ready to get our school year started off on the right foot. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at kalautenbach@dcsdk12.org . I will see you all soon!

Eagerly awaiting the year,


Ms. Lautenbach
