Sign up for the Sketcher’s Walk: If you are not familiar with this, the TEF is using this event to help every school in Torrance raise money for their school, club, sports team, or PTSA. The minimum 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!
Dangerous Person on Campus Drill: The TUSD, in conjunction with the Police Department and Fire Department, conducted a large scale drill to review the procedures that would be taken should a school campus face an emergency situation involving a dangerous person. The drill was effective and informative. Here at Seaside, we will continue to practice our ‘Shelter in Place’ drill to be prepared not just for a dangerous person but also for a chemical spill or noxious fumes. Going inside, locking or baracading doors and hiding are some of the instructions you might feel are important to provide your child. Each family will have the conversation they feel is appropriate for their children.
Great Shake Drill: On Thursday, Oct. 16, Seaside along with all the other schools across California, participated in the Great Shake Drill. The students and staff did an excellent job of participating in an organized, quiet manner. Our supply bin was opened, tools were identified and some were removed in a mock search and rescue, the gas was located so it could be shut off if necessary and the check-out and reunion gates were established. Special thanks to PTA for organizing and updating our emergency supplies. The bin has shelving, tools, water, porta-potties and more all because of their dedication. Way to go, PTA!
I look forward to seeing everyone at the Monster Mash this Thursday at 6:00!
I was working in the lab, late one night
When my eyes beheld an eerie sight
For my monster from his slab, began to rise
And suddenly to my surprise
He did the mash, he did the monster mash
The monster mash, it was a graveyard smash
He did the mash, it caught on in a flash
He did the mash, he did the monster mash!
