Michael Corritone, Principal

I would like to thank our amazing teachers for putting on a wonderful Back-To-School Night program last week! There was such a great buzz in the classrooms and around school as we heard about what is to come this school year for our students. If you were not able join me in the auditorium last Thursday, here is a link to the slideshow from my presentation. As we have settled into the school year, and many of our start of the year activities and events are now behind us, I would also like to say thank you to our staff and parent community for your engagement and support for our students. We are all quite fortunate to be a part of the Beach community!

As I mentioned in my presentation at Back-To-School Night, PUSD and the Tri-Schools have three primary goals we are working towards over the course of the school year.


Goal #1: All students feel physically safe, emotionally cared for, and academically and socially included in their school environment.


Goal #2: All students graduate with the 21st century learning skills needed for college and careers.


Goal #3: All students engage in rigorous, relevant, and differentiated learning experiences where they make connections among disciplines.


Please see our district’s 18-19 LCAP Summary document which outlines goals and our action plan.


The TriSchool Site Council is tasked with developing goals that dovetail with the action items for the three LCAP goals. This work is on-going year to year. I would like to encourage all parents and community members who would like to participate in our work to attend our Tri-School Site Council meetings. Our first meeting of the year is next Tuesday from 3:30-4:30pm in the Wildwood Library. Our agenda is as follows:

  1. Welcome and Introductions

  2. Review PUSD LCAP Ecosystem

  3. Work in Progress

    1. Professional Learning Communities

    2. Multi-tiered Systems of Support

    3. Integrated Learning Specialist Program

  4. Review CAASPP Data

  5. Draft Goals for 2018-19

    1. Review

    2. Discuss

    3. Next steps


If you are interested in the work of Site Council, but are unable to attend the meetings, I will be providing updates at my principal coffee events, parent club meetings and in future bulletins.


Have a great week!
