Principal's Note

Golden West Elementary School is a “TRRFCC” place to be!  Everyone focuses on being Trustworthy, Respectful, Responsible, Fair, Caring, and a good Citizen.  Our faculty and staff are committed to high standards of excellence.  Each is highly trained and personally dedicated to meeting the needs of our students.  Our diverse student body demonstrates 49er Pride as they strive to achieve their personal best.  Our 49er Pride is contagious.  We invite and encourage you to become involved at our “TRRFCC” school.  Research shows that children who have parents involved at school generally perform better.  If you would like to become involved and make a difference for a child, please contact me at 209-858-7300. For more information regarding our school and/or district, visit www.mantecausd.net. It is truly a pleasure to be the principal of Golden West School where we all take pride in ourselves, our school and everything we do! 
Together We Make a Difference,
Sherie Gates, Principal
