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.
This message is for Colin Powell 6th Grade students only. Whooping cough (pertussis) has been widespread in California since 2010. California law now requires that students entering the 7th grade must be immunized against pertussis (Tdap booster). We are trying to clear students now so there will be no delay in starting school in September.
Please bring/send the immunization record to the school nurse:
Thank you to those 6th graders who have already turned in proof of the Tdap immunizations. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the school nurse, Marcia Elliott Gant RN.

Long Beach Unified School District is proud to be a Google Apps for Education district. Students and teachers in grades K-8 each have a Google account that can be used to access web-based programs that include word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, drawings, and more.

Students in the second grade are using Type2Learn a lab-based keyboarding program, in order to support the Common Core writing standards and their increased use of technology. TypAge2Learn is accessible both at school and at home. Teachers gave their students the download information and students should be able to access their own device at home.
Parent VUE is a website that allows parents to view their children’s current and historical information, including daily attendance, grades, report cards, test scores, discipline, graduation status, preparation for college and more. It is also a one-stop location for links to other parent services including School Loop and MySchoolBucks (School meal accounts).
With five minutes and one simple activation, parents can view information on all of their children, from elementary school to high school. Parents also will be able to update emergency card information electronically. All parents are encouraged to set up accounts; the computer labs are available during and after school to assist you. We can assist you with setting up email and school loop accounts. My goal is to have parents linked to our school so they are better informed. Please come visit the Parent Center we have computers and a printer available for your use and assistance (Spanish speaker is available)

HOW DOES THE PROGRAM WORK?
ST Math features a penguin that guides students through math concepts in a visual way. It doesn’t rely on language to teach math concepts the way a textbook does. “We don’t usually consider the extra cost in complexity of introducing students to math using language,” said Andrew Coulson, chief strategist at the MIND Research Institute, ST Math’s publisher. He said that introducing the concepts without the burden of language allows kids to grasp the ideas before learning the vocabulary and symbols that go along with them.
