Super Sundance Staff!
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.

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.
Lauren Kinney, Principal
Lora Roman, Assistant Principal
In Loving Memory...
Sundance is a busy place!
Late Pick Up Procedure!
Parents, please remember, regular dismissal for 1st-5th graders is at 2:35.
We have a NEW PICK UP PROCEDURE for students who are picked up late after school. Our teachers will wait 10 minutes after school with your child, at that point, they will walk them to the lunch tables in the cafeteria area to wait for you to pick them up. If you are late to pick up your student, you will need to park and walk through the front gate by Room 28 back to the cafeteria area to pick up your child.
Please note: STUDENTS WHO ARE PICKED UP LATE ON A REGULAR BASIS WILL BE CONTACTED INDIVIDUALLY.
This is also the place where our students who go to City Day Camp will wait until it is time to go to their bus. Thank you in advance for your effort to pick up your child on time.
Here is the link to the official 2014-15 Parent Notifications from BUSD!
There are several notifications for parents to review. A form will be sent home with your child that indicates you have reviewed these notifications. They are: Attendance Policy, Annual Notification of Parent Rights, Network/Internet Acceptable Use, Elementary Dress Code, Elementary Discipline Code, Healthy Schools Act Notifications, and a Health Services Letter. You may request hard copies of these documents from our school office. Call 951-845-2621 or stop by!

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...
