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.

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.

Cafeteria Expectations!

At Garfield most students have the opportunity to be serve two meals...breakfast and lunch.  If students arrive at school with plenty of time before the bell rings, they will be served breakfast. Each family must fill out a lunch application online or make arrangements with the cafeteria supervisor to add money on to their students account. (More information about this can be found on the district site: www.lbschools.net/Departments/Nutrition_Services). All students enrolled at Garfield will be provided a lunch with supervision by school staff.

 

District employees are the only adults that are allowed inside the cafeteria.  Teachers and recreation aides assist our young students in the procedures of getting and completing their meals. During the first week of school, we make an exception for our kindergarten parents and allow them to help for the first few days. After that, we want our students to begin to build their independence and  responsibility  for feeding themselves, with assistance from staff when needed.

 

Parents, please make sure you wait outside the cafeteria, away from the doors, while your child(ren) are eating. At Garfield, we have the huge job of  serving over 750 students in our cafeteria daily. The procedures that are in place help us to get the students inside, allow them time to eat at a comfortable pace and try to keep the amount of time the students are waiting outside to a minimal.  Your help in following these procedures is appreciated. 

 

If you have any questions about these procedures, please see the principal.
