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.

• The winning entries will be published in the Press-Telegram on Oct. 31, and posted online at www.presstelegram.com/.

If you have any questions, e-mail Press-Telegram City Editor Susan Jacobs at sjacobs@scng.com or call 310-543-6110. Local teachers  – current and retired – the Press-Telegram needs your help. If you have interest in being a judge, please let them know.


Back to School Night is on Tuesday, September 25th starting at 6pm (5:45 for "0" period).  This day will be a minimum day for students with dismissal at 2:18pm. See attached flyer for more information (a copy of flyer is coming home this week as well).


Many people want to help support Stanford but aren't sure how to or wonder why we hold fundraisers. Here's lots of information to help you out!


8th Grade Students who have good grades and conduct can apply for the Stanford chapter of California Junior Scholarship Federation (CJSF), a state-wide scholarship and service organization.  Students must re-apply each semester.


The purpose of the CJSF is to foster high standards of scholarship and citizenship on the part of students.  Students who attain membership for at least three of the four semesters of their 7th and 8th grade years (6th graders are not eligible for CJSF) are considered Honor Members.


In order to qualify for membership, students cannot have D, F, N, or U grades.  They receive points for the grades in their core classes (Language arts, Science, Math, and History), as well as academic electives (music, computers, FACS, art, LB Scholars, etc.):  three points for an A, one point for a B, and no points for a C.  No points for advisory, PE, or non-academic electives (like teacher's aide).  Students must have a total of at least twice as many points as academic classes (usually 5 classes/10 points) in order to become members.  See application for more information.


Seventh grade students can apply in February, after they receive their first semester of 7th grade grades. 


Download the attached application.  Completed, signed applications and a copy of last June's report card are due to Mrs. Heyer in room 206 by Tuesday, September 25th.  Late applications will not be accepted.



These meetings help the school district to strategize programs to support Pacific Islander students.  View the attached flier for details and a schedule of meetings through September.


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.
