Sundance Motto

Today I will be responsible for myself,

My choices,

My learning,

and my attitude.

I will treat myself and others with respect.

And, I will do my personal best,

In everything,


School Band


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.

Visit the BUSD Elementary Band page for more information.

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.

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!

Student Absence

If your child will be absent from school, please report his/her absence to the Health/Attendance Clerk, Claudia Ramos.  She can be reached by phone at (951) 845-2621 ext. 2104 or by email at  .



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.
