Greetings Seaside!

GATE Testing for Grades 4 and 5 - Coming Soon

All 4th and 5th grade students are being offered the opportunity to participate in GATE testing based on either teacher recommendation and/or parent request. If you would like to request testing, please ask your child’s teacher for an application. The deadline for returning your permission slip to your child’s teacher is December 16, 2014. GATE testing for fourth and fifth graders will take place on site during February and March.

Sign up for the Sketcher’s Walk The registration fee to participate in the Sketchers’ Walk is $25. The TEF will give each registered team from each school $25 for each participant that they register. You can either be an actual walker at the event on October 26th, or you can be a virtual walker that just donates to a team. TEF will give each school an additional $1,000 if the total number of registrants equals 100. So, sign up today!

Character Counts: Respect is the character trait we are focusing on for the next few weeks. Etiquette and good manners are ways that we as parents begin to teach respect. Being sensitive to the feelings of others is essential. One way to teach respect is through greeting people, inviting people into our homes and speaking about other people in respectful ways whether or not they are in earshot. Social niceties are an essential element of a stable and wholesome community. (Paraphrased from The Blessing of a Skinned Knee by Wendy Mogel, Ph.D.)

I look forward to seeing you all at the Halloween Day Parade on Friday morning. This is my favorite holiday; it is filled with so much joy…. and CANDY!

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!
