Starting this week all high school students and their parents in the Long Beach Unified School District will receive customized College Readiness Guides.  The guides – based upon each student’s course history, grade point average, test scores and other factors – provide an overview of readiness for various California public colleges and universities, along with suggested next steps for students and parents. The aim of the seven-page reports is to take the mystery out of college preparation.  The guides were created with feedback from parents who wanted practical, “how-to” information on college readiness. View a sample guide. Students will be able to view their own reports online in their StudentVUE portal.  Parents can review their children’s reports in the ParentVUE portal. 

 

Join us on Tuesday, October 17th at 6:00 pm in the Lakewood High School Library for a Parent Workshop on How to Use Your College Readiness Guide.  Our College Counseling Team will be ready to answer your questions and to walk you through these how-to information guides.

 

PTSA meeting will follow at 7:00 pm.

We received notice today that a Lakewood High School teacher, Mary Jahn, who had already been on leave since last May, has been arrested.  This case involves an alleged inappropriate relationship with a former high school student who is now an adult.  The alleged relationship occurred more than six years ago, and we are working closely with our law enforcement partners so that they can gather all the facts they need.  The safety and well-being of our students is always our primary concern.  The case is being investigated by the Long Beach Police Department.

 

Mary Jahn worked as an English teacher at Lakewood High School from 2006 until May 11 of this year, when she was placed on leave at the outset of an investigation.

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.

If you are going to take one of these AP Classes, plan on attending the workshops because they will prepare you to be successful during your year in that course.  The teachers design them to support your academic success as you transition into a more challenging, college level class.  During the workshop teachers may:

  • discuss main topics and ideas that will be covered in class
  • review necessary topics and skills that students should know before beginning the year
  • practice certain skills that will be necessary to be successful in the course
  • go over the AP Exam components

If you plan on attending AP Summer Bridge in August, click here to open the online registration form (or copy and paste the address: goo.gl/forms/4jkZCUgz6CoQLHfy1 in a new browser).  However, if you have trouble accessing the link or if you prefer a paper copy, you can do one of the following:

  1. Print out the attached registration form and fill it out.
  2. Pick up a registration form from Sra. Frayre in Room 407
  3. Pick up a registration form from the front office (after June 15) and fill it out.

If you fill out a paper copy of the registration, turn it in to Room 407 only until June 15th; afterwards, place it in the red box in the front office.  If you have questions about a specific AP Workshop, contact the individual AP teacher.  If you have general questions about AP Summer Bridge, please respond to this email.

Please make every attempt to register electronically but regardless of how you choose to submit the form, the deadline to register for AP Summer Bridge is Friday, June 30th.
