Did you know that you have control of how you receive messages from Los Cerritos via School Messenger? Some families enjoy the recorded phone calls, but others prefer texts or emails instead. If you'd like to change your preferences, please click below to open my locker, which contains directions for doing so through your ParentVUE account. We want you to stay informed about current events, but in the way that best works for you.

NEW UNIFORM GUIDELINES for 2016-17
Please check out our new uniform guidelines! Go to the menu above and select "Schedule/Uniforms," then "Uniform Policy" to see the changes. The teachers all voted with input from parents, and we think you'll be pleasantly surprised. The most notable changes are that we will allow use of dark blue jeans (with no rips or marks) as bottoms, navy leggings (as long as the shirt worn with it is finger tip length) as bottoms, and we have lifted the restriction limiting the color of accessories (such as socks, tights, and hair bows/ties). These changes should make shopping easier for parents, and life a little more comfortable for our kids. On the other hand, one thing we're going to start tightening up on is the color of outerwear that we allow. Sweaters and sweatshirts will need to be navy blue or red, with no logo, or with Los Cerritos artwork. Winter jackets and raincoats of any color will be allowed over a navy or red sweater, but only while students are outside on the playground.

Los Cerritos News
The National Science Teacher Association and the California Science Teachers Association are supporting a March for Science at multiple locations nationally on Saturday, April 22, including a 10 a.m. Long Beach march from Bixby Knolls to Houghton Park. View more information about the Long Beach march at the Teachers Association of Long Beach website.
The intent of the nonpartisan march is to advocate for high quality science education for all and to advance the idea that science has application to everyday life, is a vehicle for lifelong learning, and expands our knowledge of the world around us.
Learn more about the national effort at marchforscience.com.
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.
