The scary season has arrived – and the Press-Telegram wants to be spooked.

The newspaper is again launching its popular Scary Stories contest for Long Beach area youth. Winning entries – both stories and artwork – will be published in the Press-Telegram on Halloween, Oct. 31.

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 Oct. 24.
• All entries must be emailed, with 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 5MG 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.

If you have any questions, e-mail Press-Telegram City Editor Melissa Evans at mevans@scng.com or call 562-499-1280.

Come and enjoy our first Picnic on the Playground of the 2016-1017 school year.  Bring a chair or blanket and have lunch on the playground with your student.  



Show your school spirit! We will be having Sports Jersey Day on Friday, September 30.  All students may wear a Jersey top but must continue to wear uniform bottoms and wear appropriate shoes.



 5:30-7:20 P.M.

Back-To-School Night is a very important evening set aside for teachers and parents to share their plan for a successful school year. This is an evening for parents only.  There will be no playground supervision.  We thank you in advance for planning ahead and arranging for child care. To help you make the most of your evening, the teachers will hold two identical sessions so that those of you with multiple children will be able to hear from each of their teachers.

Our Back To School Night will begin at 5:30 p.m. on the playground with a welcome message, introductions, and important announcements from Principal Wood.  Beginning at 6:00 p.m. our teachers will hold two 30 - 40 minute sessions (6 - 6:40 & 6:40 - 7:20).  Our evening will conclude at 7:20 p.m.  Please don’t miss this very informative time with your child’s teacher



Session I of our After School Programs will begin on Monday, September 19. There will not be any after school classes on the following dates – 9/20 for Back to School Night, 10/31 for the Halloween parade, and 11/11 Veteran’s Day holiday. Select the programs you would like, attach a check to the sign-up form, and drop it in the blue mail box in the foyer.  




Show your school spirit and join us for a fun evening by coming to Pa’s Pumpkin Patch on Monday, October 3, from 5 to 9 p.m.  Purchase unlimited ride wristbands for an awesome price!  Pre-sale price is $25 per wristband or they can be purchased the night of the event before 6:00 pm for $30 each.  If you pre-order, your name will be on a list at the Patch and your wristband will be distributed when you arrive.  Wristbands are for unlimited rides; they are not valid for games or food.  Pa’s Pumpkin Patch is located at 6701 East P.C.H. If you have questions, contact Brenda Durnin at bdurnin@sentineldev.com



This is a great opportunity for your child to try something new and develop their leadership skills.  Students get to create their own poster as well as prepare a speech and present it to the Student Body.  It’s a fun way to be exposed to the elections process.  The Fall Student Council time frame is as:

Monday, 10-3 Student Council Kick-
Tuesday, 10-4 Applications available after
Friday, 10-7 Applications are due in the office by
Mon.& Wed. 10-10 & 12 Student Council speech rehearsal at lunch

TK, Kinder and 1st grade           10:00-10:25

Grades 2 & 3                               10:30- 11:00

The safety of our children is our number one priority!  

Parents, please help us assist the safe arrival of our students on a daily basis.  We encourage all parents to only drop students off on the school side of the street and park according to all traffic and parking regulations.  Parents of students in Grades 1 - 5 are encouraged to utilize the Valet Drop Off system by pulling all of the way forward in front of the school and having your children exit quickly from the passenger side of the vehicle. (Students in TK and Kinder need to be escorted to the playground by guardians). If your child is not prepared to exit or needs your assistance leaving the car or walking to the playground, please do not use the drop-off.  

Please help reduce congestion and frustration by refraining from the following actions.  

Please do not:

  • execute a 3-point turn in front of the school.

  • park in or block our neighbors driveways.

  • allow your student to exit your vehicle on the driver’s side of your vehicle or the opposite side of the street from the school.

  • park in the front of school before or during school hours.  



Show off your Talents in the PTA Reflections Art contest. The theme this year is "What's Your Story?" Enter your original masterpiece in any or all - Dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography or visual arts. You can enter one or more in each category. All entries must be original and reflect this year's theme : What Is Your Story? Deadline is October 21, 2016. All entries will receive an award and recognition at our awards ceremony in November. Looking for parent volunteers. Information is available in the Naples Front office area or karenwashburness@gmail.com or nhale@mediapartnersww.com.
