Greeting Seaside Community!
Thank you PTA for providing the students with a fun and interesting science assembly on Friday. We are so fortunate that you provide all students with enriching activities to support learning and make school fun. If you didn’t already, ask your children about the assembly.
Below are a few reminders to guide you through the week.
Monday, March 23rd is the Torrance DELMAC Conference! Some excellent classes will be held. The conference is for parents who have students that are learning English and will be very informative.
Fun Run: Our main fundraiser is fast approaching, the FUN RUN. Your children have come home with information on gathering pledge donations. Please help them with this. The students have also received character education mini lessons in the classroom in line with our Character Counts program. What a treat!
The Fun Run is on April 2nd and occurs in combination with The Family Picnic and Science Fair viewing. Families help or watch students run, bring blankets and food and eat with children, look at the Science Fair projects and then go home for spring break. It is a great day!
Caring Awards: Friday, March 27 students will receive Character Counts awards in recognition of those students who have demonstrated exceptionally, the quality of Caring.
Summer School!!! The South Bay Enrichment summer program will be held at Arlington and Hickory elementary schools this year from June 29-July 24. Pre Registration for TUSD students begins March 9. Catalogs are available in the school office and more information can be found at www.tefsbea.org.
TUSD Elementary School Track Meet: This annual event is fast approaching and we need volunteers to create a team and practice with them once or twice and represent us at the event. There is a great deal of flexibility here. Please contact me if you are interested.
The Torrance Education Foundation is hosting a dinner on Friday, March 27 to support Torrance schools. Take a look at the TEF web site to learn more. I urge you to consider participating in this event next year, if not this. It is really fun and supports our primary cause, the students!
Enjoy the week, everyone. I look forward to seeing you at school.
