School Band

School Band.JPG

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 in the San Gorgonio Middle School band room.

Visit the BUSD Elementary Band page for more information.

SAFETY REMINDERS

From our District Office...

Parents and Students:

We would like to remind everyone of some general safety tips as students are coming to and from school.  We encourage students to call 911 immediately if they feel in danger as they are traveling to and from school.  

Student Safety Reminders:

  • Students should always be aware of their surroundings, especially when walking or waiting alone.
  • Do not walk alone but walk in groups of two or more.
  • Never get into a vehicle with a stranger - fight, shout, scream, kick, bite, run and tell.
  • Never take anything a stranger offers you - do not accept candy, food or money from a stranger.
  • Do not walk alone in the dark.
  • Stay away from lonely places - do not go alone into deserted buildings, empty parking lots or places where there are few people around.
  • Remain on school grounds during school hours.
  • Immediately tell responsible adults/school officials about any suspicious activities or people encountered to or from school and give as many details as possible.

Student safety is a top priority in Beaumont Unified School District and we appreciate your help in creating a safe learning environment and community.

Sundance Elementary Welcomes You!

Family Math Night FUN! :)

Many students and their parents attended this event. Every student received a FREE BAG of math manipulatives and packet full of math games. Many teachers attended to help our students play math games of all kinds in the MPR, on the back stage, in the library, and in the computer lab. I think the most favorite game was Marshmallow Math and building structures with plastic cups! Sundance students just LOVE math! THANKS to OUR PTA for SPONSORING THIS EVENT!

"Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Safe!"

Dear parents and students,

Sundance Elementary has adopted a districtwide positive discipline program to support the behavioral success of all 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.

Sincerely,

Lauren Kinney, Principal

Lora Roman, Assistant Principal

Accountability Report Cards

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). The purpose of the report card is to provide parents and the community with important information about each public school. For additional information regarding the SARC, click here.
