Greetings Seaside Community!
Thank you to all who participated in Casino Night. Ty Underwood and Mark Iinuma were the primary organizers and did a great job. What a fun evening! If you have never come out for the event, I strongly encourage you to do so next time. Make it extra fun and bring some friends because a nicer party is hard to find. The evening was relaxed and energetic. There were black jack tables, roulette tables and craps. The taco bar and potato martini bar were the perfect party finger food. There was dancing with D.J. Dewey and plenty of silent auction items to choose from if you were so inclined. PTA really out did themselves this year. Excellent work! How our students will benefit from all the fun we had!
Parachutes: We have 2 parachutes on campus that students enjoy using with their class for a variety of colorful, windy activities. Both are in need of sewing repair. I understand that there are rips at the seams and in the handle grips. If you have a heavy duty sewing machine and a little extra time, please come to or call the office to make arrangements to repair our parachutes.
Science Fair: As you know, there has been an unexpected change in the date of the District Science Fair. Monday, March 17 is the Science Fair project due date. Students will view the science fair projects with their classrooms on Thursday and Friday, March 20 and 21. Parents are invited to view the science fair projects with or without children on Thursday, March 20 from 2:00 – 3:45 p.m. or 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. and on Friday, March 21 from 8:00 – 9:15 a.m. and 2:00 – 3:45 p.m.
Make a Plate! Your child has come home with a make a plate kit. This is a wonderful keepsake for parents, grandparents and other relatives. I encourage you to think of Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and any other holiday or birthday to give the gift of a beautiful memory from the heart of your child.
Teacher Appreciation is coming April 28 – May 2. Students spend the majority of their day at school under the care and guidance of their teacher. Now if the time to think of a way to express thanks and appreciation for the dedication and support your child’s teacher has shown them. Teaching is an act of heart!
Enjoy the week everyone, and savor every moment. The year is more than half over… time flies!
