Literature Comes To Life at Nichols Elementary School
Dressed as sea creatures and farm animals, students and teachers at Nichols Elementary School helped act out two famous children’s books, “The Rainbow Fish” and “The Stinky Cheese Man,” during a Tuesday morning performance of Literature Comes to Life.
“The Rainbow Fish” focuses on the joy of giving, while “The Stinky Cheese Man” represents a collection of parodies of famous children’s stories.
Under the direction of Stacey Wein, the program has presented educational and assembly programs to thousands of preschool, elementary and middle schools for 24 years. Literature Comes to Life regularly visits more than 175 school sites and libraries throughout the U.S. and Candada each year.
Classified Employees Honored This Week for Numerous Contributions
From secretaries to bus drives, custodians to maintenance and grounds workers, all members of the California School Employee Association (CSEA) play a tremendous role in the overall educational experience for public school children. Services provided by CSEA staff members are invaluable and help ensure the smooth operation of our schools.
This week, May 19-25, the Oceanside Unified School District joins more than 750 union chapters throughout the state to celebrate Classified School Employee Week. Please join the district in thanking all CSEA members whose skills and talents play such an integral part in the field of public education.

California Business Excellence Honor Roll for Palmquist and Ivey Ranch
Raising the bar of student achievement has helped land both Palmquist and Ivey Ranch Elementary schools on the California Business for Education Excellence (CBEE) 2012 Honor Roll. The high-achieving OUSD schools are part of the 2,108 campuses state-wide to receive this prestigious honor.
“To ensure more of our schools succeed, we must change the conversation from being about fixing failing schools to one that focuses on replicating the success of schools like those on the Honor Roll,” said CBEE Chairman Greg Jones.
Schools honored are recognized for demonstrating consistently high levels of student academic achievement and a reduction in the achievement gap.
