Greetings Seaside!

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!

Dear Parents and Students:

The Torrance Police Department cares about your safety. With traffic congestion becoming a concern of schools nationwide, particularly as parents pick up and drop off their children, our goal is to make this process flow in a safe and smooth manner. We can do it with your help—please obey all traffic laws and parking restrictions!

To further improve the situation, beginning in the 2006/2007 school year, we started using video cameras to tape violations occurring around our schools. These cameras will continue to be used to tape violations for the 2014/2015 school year. Parking citations will be mailed to the registered owner of the vehicle. You don't want to become a star on our camera...instead, help us out by NOT picking up or dropping off in the following areas!

  • Driveways
  • Red Zones
  • No Stopping Zones
  • Double Parking
  • Crosswalks / Intersections
  • Handicapped Spaces

By following the suggestions above, we can work together to provide a safe environment for students while avoiding parking citations. If you have any questions, please call us at (310) 618-5557. Remember, wear your seatbelt, have a safe school year, and don't become a star on our camera!

Here at Seaside Elementary we are determined that every student will have a great opportunity this year. In order for us to do this we need everyone’s support. In place of having all the families sell items we are going with a Direct Donation drive. The Direct Donations drive is to cover the cost of programs at Seaside that are not paid by the state or school district. Currently the Seaside PTA pays for all enrichment programs on campus. In order for us to provide the programs we currently have on campus we are recommending a donation of $200 per child or $350 per family. Any amount and every donation is greatly appreciated.

We will be having a contest where the grade that raises the most money will have an extra surprise assembly. If we reach our goal of $60,000.00 the entire school will take part in an extra assembly! Please don’t forget to turn in your Direct Donation this week. You can also pay through PayPal. Please see the Direct Donation form below.

as of 10/8/2014

The Health Office is in need of the following clothes for students who occasionally need a change during the school day. 

  • Small girls elastic waist pants and shorts (Sizes 4 to 10)
  • Small boys underwear and sweat pants (Sizes 4 to 10)


Be sure to check the Dolphin Splash and the updated Calendar.

How: Just visit http://www.skechersfriendshipwalk.com, and register under Team Seaside with Chrissy Loebs as our Team leader. Make sure to choose TEF as the recipient for your donation proceeds, and they will make sure we receive 100% of that. *If you can’t make the walk on Sunday, you can also be a virtual walker and enjoy knowing that your registration is helping to make a difference. All registered walkers, actual and virtual, can pick up their Skechers Walk T-Shirt, gift bag and medal at our Del Amo Skecher’s store the Friday or Saturday before the walk.

WHY: The Skechers Friendship Walk is an easy way to show our support for Seaside, TEF and our children’s education. Seaside will get 100% of the $25 registration proceeds and if we get 100 people to sign up, we will get an additional $1,000 bonus!! (That’s $3,500 to Seaside for 100 walkers.)! Last year we raised almost $5000! Let’s see if we can top that! You can register just your child or your whole family; grandmas, grandpas, aunts and uncles; everyone is welcomed and appreciated!
