ONLINE FALL REGISTRATION
Spread the word! We are excited to report that as of February 21, Long Beach Unified School District will begin the online enrollment procedure for new students. This new process will save time and allow you to enroll in the comfort of your home. New parents will be able to activate their ParentVUE account for future use as well as review and revise information in the LBUSD system. Beginning Monday, January 30, parents may stop in the office to obtain information about what documentation is required to begin the enrollment process. After we verify the information and make sure immunizations are current, you will be provided with the online instructions to enroll your student. We understand that this is only the second year of the online enrollment procedure and technical support is available through LBUSD. We are excited that the District is moving to a more streamlined system that will eventually be paperless!

Thanks to all of the students for coming out to audition for the Naples Talent Show! We will be posting the order of the acts on Monday, January 30th after school on the auditorium door and we will have a quick meeting to answer any questions and post future rehearsal schedules. At this time, we have 40 acts of fun so our auditions are closed for this year's show. Please remember to bring your music on a CD to practice, if we don't already have it, to accommodate our "vintage" system in the auditorium.
The cast will be receiving emails regarding future rehearsal schedules. We will alternate practicing Act 1 and Act 2 on different dates and practices will begin next week after school. Rehearsals will continue for the next few weeks leading up to the show on Thursday, February 23rd at 6pm. Thanks for all of your hard work!
