MS. BEHRENS' 3RD GRADE CLASS PRESENTATION: THE GREAT STATE OF CALIFORNIA!!
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.

SARC - SCHOOL ACCOUNTABILITY REPORT CARD
Since November 1988, state law has required all public schools receiving state funding to prepare and distribute a SARC. A similar requirement is also contained in the federal No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB).

Sundance is "Hitting the Books!"
Sundance students are gearing up for our annual Read-a-thon fundraiser! From students will read, read, read! Our younger students are "hitting it out of the park" by reading 100 books in one month. Our upper grade students are "tagging all their bases" by meeting their AR reading goals all four weeks. Students that meet their goal will earn a medal and receive two free tickets to a Inland Empire 66'ers baseball game. Students are asked to get sponsors to help raise money for their classroom. Monies that are raised are used by teachers to buy more books and literacy materials for their classrooms. Now, Let's Play Ball!
Sundance goes back to the 80's!!

Positive Behavior Intervention Support :)
These are the 16 Positive Behavior Skills that we continually focus on at Sundance...
PBIS at Sundance!
Dear parents and students,
The implementation of Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBiS) involves commitment from the entire staff to teach, enforce, and acknowledge appropriate student behaviors. At all times, staff and students are expected to:
"BE RESPECTFUL, BE RESPONSIBLE, BE SAFE"
By working together, we will build a safe and orderly campus where everyone feels welcome. We love to "catch" students behaving well whenever possible and praise them! Along with your help, we will strive to instill sixteen lifelong positive social skills in our students. It is a privilege to be a part of your child’s educational experience. We will do whatever we can to influence his/her life in a positive way. (Please see our schedule of skills above.)
