Attention 11th and 12th Graders: Ethnic Studies Registration Now Open

Now is the time for interested 11th and 12th grade students to register for the CSULB Ethnic Studies class during the spring semester.  Space may also be available for 10th graders, however it will be dependent on the volume of 11th and 12th grade applicants.  This class is offered free to Long Beach Unified students.  The class sessions will be held at each of the comprehensive high schools:  Cabrillo, Jordan, Lakewood, Millikan, Poly and Wilson. All classes will be held on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon.  Classes will begin on Sept. 9 and continue until Dec. 16, 2017.   Attendance is extremely important in this college class.   If you are unable to attend more than 90 percent of the class sessions, you might reconsider registering for this class, as your grade will be negatively affected by absences.  If there is enough interest to offer the courses in the afternoon on Saturday or during the week, we will consider offering the courses at those alternative times.  However, we must have enough student interest in order to offer these additional time options.

 

Enrollment is limited to 70 students per school.  If there are more than 70 students interested per site, students will be randomly selected to participate, with 12th graders given priority.  Students who are not selected will be offered a space at another site where space is available or placed on a waiting list for the spring semester.

 

Additional classes will be available for students who have already completed a previous Ethnic Studies class and wish to take additional ethnic specific courses.  These advanced courses will be offered at sites that generate the most interest.

 

If you are interested in being considered for the spring semester CSULB Ethnic Studies class, please complete the registration form.

High School Parents Invited to LBCC Focus Groups

Attn: Parents of Long Beach High School Students (A Message from LBCC)

 

Long Beach City College has recently launched an initiative to help increase community awareness and gain positive recognition about the College, its programs, services and classes.

 

As a parent of a high school student, the College needs your help. We are asking for an hour of your time to participate in an important focus group discussion to share your knowledge, opinions and experiences related to LBCC.  Your input is critical to the success of this project and to future of the College.

 

The discussion will take place on Wednesday, June 22, from 7-7:45 pm, at Long Beach City College, LAC Campus. The discussion will be led by an independent party, Interact Communications. All information gathered will be delivered as a summary; therefore, individual comments will remain anonymous.

 

Participants will receive a monetary stipend in recognition of assistance with this important endeavor.

 

No preparation is necessary. Researchers from the branding firm will lead a discussion to gather your thoughts and ideas about the important role that Long Beach City College plays in our community and the regional economy.

 

A limited number of spaces are available, so please RSVP today to Brittany Triola, by email at btriola@lbcc.edu or by phone at 562.938.4205. Signups will be taken on a first come basis.

 

If you have any questions, please contact John Pope, Communications Director at jpope@lbcc.edu or 562.938.4206

Schools Again Remain Open Today after Non-Credible Threats (Las Escuelas permanecerán abiertas después de amenazas no creíbles)

After Los Angeles schools received threats earlier this week, other school districts in the U.S. have received similar threats that have been deemed not credible by law enforcement.  The Long Beach Unified School District was emailed the text of the same or similar threat, but again, law enforcement officials have deemed the threat not credible.  Schools will remain on their usual schedules today, and parents are encouraged to send their children to school.  We work closely every day with law enforcement and our School Safety Office to keep students safe, and you may notice increased police and School Safety officer presence on and around schools as an extra precaution.

 

Después de que las escuelas de Los Angeles recibieron amenazas previamente esta semana, otros distritos escolares en los Estados Unidos recibieron amenazas similares que han sido consideradas no creíbles por la policía. El distrito escolar Long Beach Unified recibió un correo electrónico con una amenaza similar, pero una vez más, la policía la consideró no creíble.  Las escuelas permanecerán en sus horarios normales hoy (Dic. 17), y animamos a los padres a que manden a sus hijos a la escuela. Trabajamos juntos con la policía y nuestra oficina de Seguridad Escolar para mantener a nuestros estudiantes seguros, y puede que se vean más policías y oficiales de Seguridad Escolar en o cerca de las escuelas como precaución extra.

9th and 10th Graders Can Take Free SAT Pilot Test

A four-week pilot program allows students to access two pre-release practice redesigned SATs on the future Khan Academy SAT platform.  The free exams will be offered through April 30.

The practice tests will help students to be prepared for forthcoming changes to the PSAT and the SAT.  Feedback will be evaluated  to help ensure the platform is as good as possible and the practice content is unbiased and fair.

How: It's a very simple process. Here are the steps students should take to participate:

1. Create a Khan Academy account if you do not currently have one (easy sign-up here.)

2. Click here to access the practice tests. After you complete a test, you'll receive a raw score (total correct) and be able to navigate through the questions to see which were correct and incorrect.

3. Report any errors or technical problems you experience during your practice here.

4. Once you've taken at least one practice test, please fill out the brief feedback survey here.

5. After you've completed at least one practice redesigned SAT, you'll receive an exclusive SAT Trailblazer badge on your Khan Academy account (see below).

NOTE: This pilot is for the redesigned SAT, and students will only have access to two practice SATs on the Khan Academy platform for now. The link in step #2 above will bring students directly to these tests. If students navigate on the website separately and find a section with SAT materials, please be advised these are for the current SAT, and not part of the pilot research.

Technical questions? sat@khanacademy.org.

EXPLORING COLLEGE OPTIONS STUDENT/PARENT INFO SESSIONS

Exploring College Options is a special recruitment program sponsored by the undergraduate admissions offices of five of the country's leading universities: Duke UniversityGeorgetown UniversityHarvard University, the University of Pennsylvania, and Stanford University. During the spring or fall of each year, the Exploring College Options group will visit all 50 states, Puerto Rico, USVI and the District of Columbia. At each event, representatives from the five universities will conduct brief slide presentations about their institution and answer your questions about the sometimes-mystifying world of college admissions. You will learn what distinguishes one fine university from another, what competitive colleges look for in the selection process, and what you can do to enhance your college application.

The programs start promptly at 7:30pm, so they suggest arriving 15 to 20 minutes beforehand to complete the sign-in process and find a seat. Programs typically last one and a half hours. Please feel free to bring your parent or guardian to the program, and if you have a friend who you think might be interested, please direct him/her to this website for registration information.

LB Poly HS Alumni Association NOT Affiliated with LB Poly HS

We have recently been informed that there is a Golf Tournament being planned by the Long Beach Poly High Alumni Association, stating that the tournament is to raise funds to build a new sports and education complex on the LBPHS campus. This project has NOT been approved by the LBUSD School Board.  At one point LB Poly HS formally appointed Tim Gilmore as President of the Alumni Association but it ended that relationship in 2012.

Belle of the Ball Event / Prom Dresses
MESSAGE FROM "BELLE OF THE BALL" ORGANIZERS:
 
With prom season upon us, we realize that not every young lady can afford this memorable, yet costly experience. We've collected tons of new and gently used formal dresses, many of which are brand-name/designer labels, and will be offering them for FREE at our 2nd Annual Belle of the Ball event on Saturday, May 3rd. This year's event will be held at 7th Street Church, 668 Obispo Ave. Long Beach 90802.
 
We hope that you will help us spread the word to those you feel would truly benefit from this type of event.
 
Line up will begin at 9am, and doors will open at 10am. The first 20 {may be more, final number TBD the day of the event} girls in line will also have the opportunity to browse our selection of {mostly new} formal shoes to go with their dresses. There will be music, sweets, and a raffle which will include items like: certificates to get hair/nails/make-up done, shoes, accessories.
 
Our last event drew in over 100 young ladies, and almost everyone left that day with a dress in their hand and a smile on their face.
 
Please feel free to pass this message and flyer along, and do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions.
 
All the best,
Jennifer Bedrossian & Jessica Rivera

Jackrabbits to Watch Essay Contest

All Poly students are unique in their own way and have made positive decisions that deserve to be recognized. Despite the difficulties that life may present from time to time, some surpass expectations and achieve success, whether this is demonstrated through devotion toward family members, commitment to athletics, exemplary academic performance, or service to the broader Long Beach community. In any case, the “Jackrabbits to Watch” program aims to recognize students who have overcome adversity and have achieved success in their lives.

 

Students selected to become the 2013-2014 Jackrabbits to Watch will be awarded the following:

- A plaque including the student’s picture and a short biography detailing their accomplishments

- A certificate of recognition

- A place in the 2013-2014 yearbook as a “Jackrabbit to Watch”

- Special status as the winner of an academic award that can be added to resumes and used in applications for scholarships and college admissions.

 

As a prospective Jackrabbit to Watch, your task is to submit an application by December 6th, 2013 including the following:

- Transcript (an unofficial transcript is acceptable)

- An essay of approximately 500 words

- Any other supplemental information you find worth mentioning (a “brag sheet” or resume, additional information about home life, etc.)

- If a close decision must be made between certain applicants, a short interview may be requested.

 

The essay of around 500 words must answer one of the following prompts (in the interest of helping students juggle priorities, the following essays are both University of California prompts, which are due November 30) :

1) Describe the world you come from — for example, your family, community or school — and tell us how your world has shaped your dreams and aspirations.

2) Tell us about a personal quality, talent, accomplishment, contribution or experience that is important to you. What about this quality or accomplishment makes you proud and how does it relate to the person you are?

 

The contest is open to all Poly students (9th-12th grade) and although academic performance will be a factor in selecting the winners, grades will not be the most important factor in selecting the winners. There is no minimum GPA required and students of all backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.

The main goal of this project is to recognize students who have found success within their lives despite adversity in any way shape or form, as judges will acknowledge that grades are not the only indication of an applicant’s merit.

Thank for your time and please send your submissions through LoopMail to Christian Vazquez by midnight of December 6th at the latest!

 

If you have any questions about the contest (such as issues with submitting your transcript through email, etc.) voice your concerns to Christian Vazquez through LoopMail.

Good Luck!

PARKING LOT GATES & CLOSURES

Please be aware that the entrance gate to the Esther Street Student Parking Lot and the north Esther Street gate of the Atlantic Staff Lot will now be closed and locked beginning at 5:00pm until 6:30am the following morning.  The reasons for doing this are to prevent residents of the Poly apartments from taking up valuable parking spaces and to prevent after school and weekend non-school gatherings which result in a fair amount of trash that must continually be cleaned up by our Poly staff.  Please pay notice to the new signage posted near the gates.   In addition, if you don't already have a parking permit displayed in your vehicle, please stop by the Activities Office, Rm. 805.  Non-permitted vehicles will be cited and/or towed away at owner's expense.  Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

· Youth will learn to write, shoot, edit, produce and upload short commercials for small businesses onto sites like YouTube and Yelp
· After the program, our staff will work to place youth in internships related to their newly developed skills
· The program is FREE

UCI SUMMER PROGRAM FOR CURRENT 10TH & 11TH GRADE STUDENTS

UCI would like to offer an extended deadline for the program to students through Monday, June 10, 2013.

Students are  invited to take a look at the program advantages  of the Summer Scholar Program (see attached link).

Students will earn a Certificate of Completion to add to their resume and write about in their college applications, allowing them to highlight experiences from the program in admissions essays and feature the program in the college-prep section/s of applications.

Participants will:

*          Preview "college freshman year," including introductions to undergraduate opportunities, events to meet current university students, and experiences where they will learn more about themselves and their goals.

*          Explore campus resources and student life, and become comfortable with the format of a college lecture or classroom.

*          Meet prominent UCI faculty and learn about their current research.

*          Enjoy our friendly Summer Session staff

As our organization strives to adjust to the needs of our students, the Scholars Course has been removed and re-conceptualized as two robust series of seminars and events titled INSIDE UCI Series  and Scholars Events . These seminars will address the most frequently asked for topics, including:


*          Lectures and lab tours by prominent UCI faculty, giving students a behind-the-scenes look at current research of UCI. Presentations may include:

*         The Chemistry of Fireworks

*         Limb Regeneration Lab

*         UCI Stem Cell Research Tour

*         San Joaquin Freshwater Marsh Tour

*          College Application Workshop with the UCI Office of Admissions

*          Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program Panel

*          Undergraduate Student Panel


Enrollment is competitive. Applications (see attached link) will be accepted through June 10, 2013.  If you have any questions regarding the program, please contact us by phone at (949) 824-7649, or by e-mail at summer-scholars@uci.edu . We hope many outstanding students can join us this summer as they prepare for the next step in their educational journey attending college.
