Principal's Message                                   

June 16, 2015

Greetings, Seaside!

I hope this last Splash of the school year finds you well and ready for summer. By now travel plans should have been made and activities for children secured. Enjoy!

Last Friday, June 5, Torrance Unified School District held the 11th Annual Elementary School Track Meet for students in grades 3-5. I understand that 1,600 students participated. Happily, Seaside was among them for the first time ever.

Some of you might recall that I put a few announcements in the Splash asking if anyone would step up to coach the students. Thanks to Beate Baltes, the mother of a 5th grade student, momentum was generated and what started out with a very small number of participants grew into a group of 21 with a handful of parents helping out. It was FANTASTIC! The event ran like clockwork with high school students, principals, P.E. teachers and parents all working together to run the events. The kids were ecstatic, full of energy and enthusiasm. I look forward to next year and hope that those of you who helped out will again step up and recruit others too.

The Wheels of Freestyle fun assembly was able to be held after the morning mist subsided. It was great fun for the students. The BMX bikers jumped over Mrs. Glavas and a few other teachers to help her get ready for her retirement adventure.

We were not able to conduct the morning assembly as we had planned. The Track awards and the 5th grade Citizenship awards will be presented on Thursday, June 18th at the assembly. Remember, this is the annual Tug-of-War and parents are invited to attend.

Noon aide: We will need a new noon aide for next year. If you know anyone or are interested in joining us here, please let us know in the office. This is a great way to be involved and help your child at the same time.

Last Day of School: June 18 from 8:45 – 11:45 is the last day of school. The last day is short and FUN. We have our traditional Tug-of-War at 9:00 on the field below the 4th and 5th grade classrooms. Join us!

First Day of School: School starts again on Thursday, September, 10th. Class lists will be posted the night before at 5:00 on the cafeteria wall. PTA will be present for fun and information.

Teacher Requests: Please know that we do not accept requests asking to place children with a specific teacher. There is no way we could grant every request. Classrooms are created with great care by the teachers at the current grade level. Many factors are considered to create a balanced class including boy/girl ratio, energy level of the child, special needs, peer relations, etc…. Know that each and every teacher at Seaside is highly qualified and more than capable of teaching all children. Your child will surely come away from next year knowing all the things needed for the next grade and exercising their mind to gain the thinking skills and mental dexterity needed to succeed in the future.

Have a great summer. We look forward to seeing you in September!

Michele Bauer-Bean, Principal

Dear Parents and Students:

The Torrance Police Department cares about your safety. With traffic congestion becoming a concern of schools nationwide, particularly as parents pick up and drop off their children, our goal is to make this process flow in a safe and smooth manner. We can do it with your help—please obey all traffic laws and parking restrictions!

To further improve the situation, beginning in the 2006/2007 school year, we started using video cameras to tape violations occurring around our schools. These cameras will continue to be used to tape violations for the 2014/2015 school year. Parking citations will be mailed to the registered owner of the vehicle. You don't want to become a star on our camera...instead, help us out by NOT picking up or dropping off in the following areas!

  • Driveways
  • Red Zones
  • No Stopping Zones
  • Double Parking
  • Crosswalks / Intersections
  • Handicapped Spaces

By following the suggestions above, we can work together to provide a safe environment for students while avoiding parking citations. If you have any questions, please call us at (310) 618-5557. Remember, wear your seatbelt, have a safe school year, and don't become a star on our camera!
