Welcome Back, Pelicans! Principal's Message

Welcome back to a great new school year, Pelican Families! We are delighted to see your faces and have so enjoyed hearing about all your summer adventures, at home and away. Thanks for such a terrific start to the year!

We have so much great news to share!

  • No Combos! Thanks to a grant, the District has eliminated combo classes! Many thanks, HESD!

  • After-School Program! The Hueneme School District is in the process of building an after-school program for Beach School! We are hoping to begin in October. Enrichment activities are being developed, supplies purchased and staff is being trained to make this an engaging, safe and fun place to be after school. Please watch your text messages soon for the interest form and more information.

  • Full-time Acceleration Teacher! The District has also provided an intervention teacher position for us, and Mr. Frank has accepted the position. This will allow us to accelerate the learning of students who may be struggling.

  • No-Cost Breakfast Program! The State of California has funded Universal Feeding, a program providing two meals a day to all students who request it, at no charge to them. It will begin on the first day, at 7:45 a.m., with students able to go to the cafeteria to have breakfast and line up for class afterward.

Back-to-School Night will be in-person on September September 29, so we look forward to seeing you all!

Have a "Pelican-tastic" school year at Hollywood Beach School!

The Arts Are Back! Art & Dance Sessions

The arts are back in a big way at Beach! HESD is contracting with Art Trek, Hip Hop Mindset and Dance for Wellness to bring the arts to our students this year. Additionally, our school is applying for additional funding to bring more arts programs to every grade level. We are excited to see all that our Pelicans can do and to encourage them to grow in the arts!
