The Long Beach Public Library will offer an amnesty program for overdue book fines during the month of April, in celebration of National Library Month. From April 1 to April 30 the library will welcome back its overdue books and waive associated fines. Return any undamaged, overdue library materials to your local Long Beach Public Library location, and your overdue fines will be waived. If you have overdue fines from previously returned materials, donate a new book to the library and those fines will be waived, too. For more information, visit the Long Beach Public Library in person or online at www.lbpl.org.

JAVA WITH JEFF
Tuesday, March 28th from 8:15 - 9:15 a.m.
Join Principal Wood as he shares the new State Dashboard Accountability Report and Discusses State Testing.
The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress is the State program under which our SBAC testing occurs. Students in grades 3 - 5 are assessed in English Language Arts and Math. Testing will begin on April 26th. During this time it is very important for your student to come to school well rested, having eaten a healthy breakfast and on time to enable them to do their best. Each testing section is scheduled for approximately 1.5 hours; however, it is actually untimed. All students are encouraged to do their best.
Help us keep our school safe for our students. If you notice any suspicious activity on or around our school campus, please notify the proper authorities. We have an extremely responsive School Safety department that receives calls and responds 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. LBUSD School Safety Dispatch can be reached at (562) 997-8101.

CAREER DAY CONVENTION COMING SOON
FRIDAY, MAY 26
If you, or someone you know would like to host a kiosk at our Career Convention (read more below), we would love to have you!
Back by popular demand, we will be hosting our Naples Career Convention for Career Day! There will be five key note speakers from our community that every child will get to see and we will have a convention style kiosk setup for our parents to present their careers to the whole school as well! So, ask your company if they have a convention presentation booth that you can borrow or just come with your talents and your desire to share your career with the kids and we will set you up with a table (kiosk) and signage. We encourage the use of visuals, handouts, and hands-on materials (as appropriate to your occupation). Each grade level of 60 students will be coming through the kiosks in six, 25 minute sessions from 8:25am to 11:35am. Breakfast and lunch will be provided to presenters to allow for more discussion time with students. Even if you have been a presenter in the past, we would love to have you back. If you are interested in being a convention style kiosk speaker, please contact Pamela Miller Nolte email@example.com, (562) 221-8906 by April 27th. Please let us know as soon as possible if you would like to participate, so we can reserve a spot for you!
Also, if you have a great person in mind to be a keynote presenter (please note, members of the community and former student’s parents are welcome as keynote speakers, but in order to be fair to our parents and students, no current student’s parents will be asked to be a keynote speaker), please contact Pam at the email address above. Thanks!
Please consider joining us to make this day fun and educational for our kids!
