The National Science Teacher Association and the California Science Teachers Association are supporting a March for Science at multiple locations nationally on Saturday, April 22, including a 10 a.m. Long Beach march from Bixby Knolls to Houghton Park. View more information about the Long Beach march at the Teachers Association of Long Beach website.
The intent of the nonpartisan march is to advocate for high quality science education for all and to advance the idea that science has application to everyday life, is a vehicle for lifelong learning, and expands our knowledge of the world around us.

The Long Beach Public Library will offer an amnesty program for overdue book fines during the month of April, in celebration of National Library Month. From April 1 to April 30 the library will welcome back its overdue books and waive associated fines. Return any undamaged, overdue library materials to your local Long Beach Public Library location, and your overdue fines will be waived. If you have overdue fines from previously returned materials, donate a new book to the library and those fines will be waived, too. For more information, visit the Long Beach Public Library in person or online at www.lbpl.org.
Title I and LCFF Funds Support Chavez Students
We are fortunate to have additional support provided to our students through the use of Title I and supplemental state funds (LCFF). Since January 2014, we have added 2 reading specialists to work with the students who need additional support to meet the Common Core State Standards and LBUSD promotion criteria. After school tutoring and enrichment classes are also available for students to join. We have also been able to purchase supplemental materials for the classroom teachers to use with their students. All of our students are also going to our new computer lab to learn technology skills that will help them be ready for college and careers. They are also learning what they need to learn for the new online SBAC assessments. For more information about SBAC online assessments and more, please visit our Parents link at the top on our school website.
