Our Multi-cultural day last week was an enormous success and so much fun. Many people have expressed excitement already about next year. We look forward to it and hope that even more people will attend. Thank you PTA!
Our Common Core information Night was also successful. Approximately 140 people attended, mostly Seaside parents, but also parents from Arnold, Walteria and Riviera. Thank you Amy Jackson and Carmela Bonello for presenting!
The following notes will be helpful to you as we move into the future.
BMI Measurements: Torrance Memorial is conducting Body Mass Index (BMI) measurements for all students who have permission from parents. Permission slips went home on Monday, Feb. 24 and should be returned to the classroom teacher. The measurements will be provided to parents and services will be offered as appropriate. Participation is voluntary and permission is required.
On line Textbooks: Teachers have opened courses on line so that students can access their social studies, math and science textbooks from home. Hooray! These books no longer need to be lugged back and forth.
Parent conferences: March are designated early dismissal days for parent conferences. These conferences are different from the beginning of the year conferences because they are held on an as needed basis. So, if the teacher believes a conference is needed or if the parent sees a need, the appointments will be made and the conference will be held.
Valet Drop Off Traffic: Please NO LEFT TURN out of the driveway in front of the school. The congestion is terrible. By making a right and taking the long way home, you will help the flow of traffic and help the area be safer for students. Thank you.
Enjoy your Sunday!
