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.


This year marks the eighth anniversary of the Long Beach College Promise.  The Long Beach Unified School District is asking all middle school students and parents to take the College Promise pledge.  Learn more and take the pledge online at www.lbschools.net/Departments/Success_Initiative/cp_ms_pledge.cfm.


The College Promise offers two semesters of free tuition at Long Beach City College and guaranteed admission to California State University, Long Beach for students who meet the minimum requirements.

  • Students may not wear leggings or tights.
  • Shorts and skirts must be an appropriate length.  Shorts must be longer than the reach of the student’s fingers.
  • Students are not to be attired in clothing that compromises safety or modesty or is disruptive to the educational process
  • Clothing apparel with logos, offensive or degrading language or symbols, revealing or tight clothing, bare midriffs, halter tops, tank tops, short shorts,torn/shredded,  oversized/baggy clothing which allows underwear to be exposed, or “gang-related” apparel are not acceptable. 
  • Hats or scarves of any kind are not allowed on campus unless they meet the guidelines found in Billy’s Bill for Sun Safety. 
  • Distracting or interfering styles are prohibited (i.e. extreme colored hair color or styles such as mohawks as well as extreme cosmetics).
  • Oversized earrings/rings or other jewelry that may potentially cause injury, sunglasses and other inappropriate accessories such as sweat bands or wrist bands are not appropriate for school.  Parents will be notified if their student violates the dress code.

  • Scouting/Campfire uniforms may be worn to school on day of the meeting in lieu of school uniform.



Assistance Programs

We have a small variety of programs in place to assist economically disadvantaged students in obtaining uniforms.  For information or to request assistance, please call the school office at (562) 925-2285. 



If you have uniforms your child has outgrown, which are still in good condition, please consider donating them to our uniform loaner program.  Donations of clean uniforms will be accepted in the school office.
