The Garden Club is affiliated with the 4H. The club has around 50 members and is directed by Mr. Gardner, Mr. Snider, and Ms. Engstrom. Club days include a meeting with the students along with work in the school garden. The meetings discuss things like decomposing, planting, learning about soil, and scientific topics like ecosystems. Students can earn badges in a variety of topics.
The 2013 annual softball game between the sixth graders and Golden Empire staff was attended by some very special people. Family and friends of Mr. Ferreter, our beloved teacher of 25 years who passed away last year, were there to observe and participate in pre-game activities honoring Mr. Ferreter. Dr. Eister introduced several students who shared how Mr. Ferreter had touched their lives and Mrs. Ferreter spoke to the students about how they could continue his legacy by “stepping up to the plate” in all that they do in life.
