Fun at the Beaumont Spirit Run!
Today I will be responsible for myself,
and my attitude.
I will treat myself and others with respect.
And, I will do my personal best,
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.

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.

Positive Behavior Intervention Support :)
These are the 16 Positive Behavior Skills that we continually focus on at Sundance...
"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.
Lauren Kinney, Principal
Lora Roman, Assistant Principal

2014-15 District Calendar
The instructional calendar for the 2014-15 academic year can be found on the BUSD website:
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!
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:
Student safety is a top priority in Beaumont Unified School District and we appreciate your help in creating a safe learning environment and community.
