School Band

Every fourth and fifth grader is eligible to participate in his/her elementary school’s instrumental music program. The Beaumont Unified School District provides free class instruction to all interested fourth and fifth grade students on flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, and percussion. Students meet two times per week, once for sectionals, with other like instruments, and once in a full band rehearsal where all instruments are combined. We offer three levels of band: beginning, advanced and honor band. The honor band is the top performing group open to the most advanced players from each school, and we rehearse on Wednesday afternoons at Three Rings Ranch Elementary in Room 40.

In Loving Memory...

     On Monday, November 24th, Sundance Elementary staff and students lost a dear friend and employee. Dolores Escobar worked at Sundance as a Security Staff Member since its opening in 2003. She worked as a crossing guard and supervised Kindergarten through 5th grade students on the playground and in the cafeteria. Her dedication to our school and our students will never be forgotten.

We CARE About Attendance at Sundance!

At Sundance, students can earn a TROPHY for never missing a day of school, if they are never tardy and never leave school early! They will also earn a trip to a 66ers baseball game accompanied by Beaumont Police Officers. Students can also earn a MEDAL for coming to school EVERY DAY (but may have a few tardies or leave early.) Classes with the best attendance earn a trophy for the month! Check out the Perfect Attendance flyer for the 66ers game...
