  • 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

    If you have any questions, e-mail Press-Telegram City Editor Susan Jacobs at 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.

    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.
