Portfolio Day was a terrific success! I saw many parents, aunts, uncles and grandparents sitting thoughtfully and joyfully with their child. Thank you for joining us to review, reflect upon and celebrate the learning that has occurred all year. We let the children know that the work they do at school is important and meaningful when we come to Portfolio Day. I think you will agree that the support we provide together has contributed to the positive growth and development of our students. I am so proud of everyone!
As you know, Seaside is a Character Counts! school. Together with parents, we help children develop positive character, pro-social behavior (inclusion) and good manners. We try to develop independence, empathy and an appreciation/value for differences. I do believe we have done an excellent job working together. Our Seaside students are generally quite well behaved!
Join me in extending a HUGE THANK YOU to Lydia Bree, Michelle Murphy and Gregg Lindsay for taking on the Seaside Track Team this year. The students had a terrific time participating in the District event on Friday. They returned to school to share pizza as a culminating team event. These teachers went well above and beyond the call of duty dedicating many hours outside of the school day to plan and practice with students. Not all schools participated in the track meet, so we feel fortunate that our students were given the opportunity.
This Friday, June 16, is our last assembly of the year. We will present the Character Counts! Citizenship Awards on the yard at approximately 9:00 a.m. All are welcome!
June 19 – 22 are the last four days of school. June 22 is a short day with school hours from 9:00 – 12:00. Our annual Tug-o-War and Perfect Attendance Awards will be held on the upper grade field (below rooms 1-8) starting at approximately 9:15. The 5th grade students will tug last. We will have a 30 minute snack recess afterward, so remember to send your child with a healthy hearty treat.
Finally, remember to check the Lost and Found rack in front of the school. We have many jackets and sweater. Unclaimed items will be donated after the last day of school.
Enjoy your Sunday, everyone! I look forward to seeing all of you tomorrow.
