Principal's Message                                   

June 22, 2014

Greetings Seaside!

The students closed the year out with tons of fun at the Annual Tug-o-war culminating with parent participation. Thanks to D.J. Tina Nakai for providing the sound system and music! It made the event quite festive.

Good News: Our music teacher, Amy Wolf has received a donation of $5,000.00 to purchase music materials to be used in each of the schools she helps (Walteria, Riviera, Arnold and Seaside). You might not be aware that Mrs. Wolf is not just the music teacher. She generously donates her time to hold and conduct student band at the four schools. She brings the students together once a year in the spring to perform. The donation will be used to continue to support her program. Thanks goes to the Confidence Foundation! Donations like this make a potent difference in what we are able to bring to our students.

Bicycle Needed: Our new Custodian, Douglas Rosales, is in need of a used bicycle. As you know, Seaside is 12 acres. Jose used a bicycle to get around more quickly. If you would like to donate an old men’s bicycle, please do! We will be happy to provide you with a tax deduction letter.

Class Assignments: Assignments will be posted after 5:00 pm outside of the cafeteria on Wednesday, September 3rd. Come by after 5:00 pm to find out the name of your child’s new teacher and the room number.

Focus for the Fall: The District will continue to provide our teachers with excellent professional development in instruction using the Common Core Standards next year. Our focus will be mathematics instruction. Three cheers go out to most of our staff members who, in addition to receiving training next year, will attend professional development this summer in Cognitively Guided Instruction through UCLA.
