Greetings Seaside Dolphins.
I trust everyone is enjoying a great Memorial Day weekend and practicing for the summer fun that is about to open up before us. We have a lot of great things coming up. The week of June 1 is quite busy.
Book Drive: This is the time to weed out your old children’s books and bring them to the school office to help another school start a library. Donations will be accepted June 1-5. Your efforts will help our former student and Girl Scout help another school start a new library.
Portfolio Day: June 3rd is Portfolio Day at Seaside. Parents, you are invited to come to school at 12:40 (after 2nd lunch), come into the classroom and listen to your children discuss their goals and accomplishments for the year. This is a time for parents to reflect with their children about their children’s’ growth and development. I encourage you to recall not just the victories and accomplishments, but the struggles that came with the accomplishments. Excellence comes with effort and sometimes we forget that growth can be a struggle. Learning to cope with adversity, sit with difficulty and wrestle with tough problems is an important ability that will serve our children well in life. Celebrating accomplishments born out of struggle will develop true self-esteem and pride.
June 5, Awards Assembly and we will recognize students with Citizenship Awards, English Fluency Awards and Biliteracy Awards. PTA will also give out two scholarship awards to former Seaside students. Join us to recognize our students on the yard at 9:00 a.m.!
Please keep informed of the goings on in your child’s classroom. Many classes are taking walking trips or having end of the year celebrations and will need your help.
See you on Tuesday! Enjoy the day.
