Character Counts at Sundance!

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,
Twin Day! :)
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.
District Goal 1: All students in our district five years or longer will achieve Proficient or Advanced on core subjects as measured by the CST.
District Goal 2: All English Learners will be reclassified within five years as measured by the district reclassification criteria.
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!

Positive Behavior Intervention Support :)
These are the 16 Positive Behavior Skills that we continually focus on at Sundance...
Our first Mother/Son Dance was AWESOME!
"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.

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 :)
80's Day! :)
Safety is Our Priority
Our district superintendent has provided these communication letters to assist families in coping with the events of the Newtown, Connecticut school shooting.
The first is a joint communique with the Beaumont Police Department.
Be assured that the Beaumont Unified School District and the Beaumont Police Department are working together to provide a safe environment for your children.
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.

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.
