With Halloween almost here, the Long Beach Press-Telegram is again launching its Scary Stories contest for Long Beach area youth. Winning entries – both stories and artwork – will be published in the Press-Telegram on Halloween. The rules are the same as last year.  There will be three age categories for stories and drawings: elementary school (K-5), middle school (grades 6-8), and high school (grades 9-12).
 

Here are the rules:

• The deadline is Monday, Oct. 15.

• All entries must be emailed, with the entrant’s name and grade, and the subject line “Scary Stories,” to: ptnews@presstelegram. Stories can be submitted in the body of the email, or as a Word attachment; drawings should be submitted in JPEG format, no larger than 5MB in size.

• Stories must be no longer than 650 words.

• Artwork must be original (no tracings).

• Entries will be judged based on imagination, creativity and theme.

State law requires all public schools to create a School Accountability Report Card (SARC). The purpose of the report card is to provide parents and the community with important information about your child's school, which includes:

  • School Description and Mission
  • School Programs and Instructional Materials
  • Opportunities for Parent Involvement
  • Test Results
  • Safety Plan
  • Facilities

We invite you to view the School Accountability Report Card (SARC) for your child's school.  You can find your school's SARC here.

Toyota Family Literacy Program

Together with the Long Beach School for Adults, McKinley Elementary, and King Elementary, we proud to be a part of the Toyota Family Literacy Program.  This program provides our Spanish speaking parents with a tremendous opportunity to participate in their child's education while developing their own English literacy skills.

The three key components to this program include:

  • Adult ESL (4 hours per week)
  • PACT (Parent and Child Time) - working side by side with the student in the classroom (2 hours per week)
  • Parenting Time (2 hours per week)

The results of this program are very exciting!  We see improved attendance, achievement and motivation from the children.  The parents have become more involved in the events on campus and are more comfortable in the classrooms and helping their children at home.

Thanks to Toyota and the National Center for Family Literacy for selecting Chavez and the Long Beach Unified School District to be a part of this amazing program!
