Remarkable Reviewers at Lido

First Grade classes at Lido Elementary School celebrated their completion of the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project’s "Writing Reviews" unit with a publishing party. Students explored the art of opinion writing as they reviewed a variety of topics and learned how to state strong opinions with supporting explanations. They had the opportunity to review their favorite restaurants in the Long Beach community as a culminating activity. 

P.S. I Love You Day

Several Long Beach schools celebrated P.S. I Love You Day as a way to encourage kindness and caring. An assortment of activities and projects focused on thoughtfulness toward others and helped to connect students and staff members. Many participants wore purple in support of the program’s mission.

At Long Beach High School, the Student Organization coordinated P.S. I Love You Day efforts on Feb. 11 and 12. Members arrived early in the morning and decorated the building, placed notes on every desk and filled the commons area with displays of positive affirmations. Additionally, carnations were available for students to purchase for others.

The Middle School organized numerous initiatives over the two days as well. A welcoming committee provided positive statements, purple ribbons and uplifting messages to those entering the building. Students wrote kind notes that were affixed to lockers and doors and also composed letters to special people in their lives. Additionally, they shared characteristics that define good friends and combined their responses to create a “caring quilt” displayed in the hallway.

Lido and the Pre-K Center observed Kindness Week, which culminated with P.S. I Love You Day. Students decorated kindness rocks in a project sponsored by the Pre-K and Lido PTAs and completed “I Love My Selfie” posters. Students and staff members also shared hearts with words of encouragement. The other buildings hold lessons and activities throughout the year that take different forms, but encompass the same underlying messages of love, compassion and positive mindsets.

Self-Esteem Blooms at Lido

Lido Elementary School has introduced the Beautiful Me program this school year as a way to enhance confidence and happiness among girls. As part of the Hance Family Foundation’s Self-Esteem Rising suite, the curriculum supports the district’s social emotional learning endeavors.

Assistant Principal Sharon Weiss and Social Worker Sally Keiser held multiple small group training series for third, fourth and fifth grade girls. They featured various activities and discussions over three sessions held on consecutive days. Participants focused on positive body image by identifying their strengths and chose ten adjectives to describe themselves during a “Be Your Own Super Hero” exercise that promoted self-awareness. On the final day, the students experienced giving and accepting compliments when they each wrote down compliments for themselves and classmates.

According to the Hance Family Foundation, which honors the lives of Emma, Alyson and Katie Hance, Beautiful Me was designed to strengthen self-esteem, increase positive body awareness, improve problem-solving and to help build healthy relationship skills for women and girls of all ages.


Welcome to the 2020-21 School Year!

Students and staff members in the Long Beach Public Schools were excited to have their highly-anticipated return to the classrooms starting on Sept. 11. Despite a slightly postponed opening due to the previous day’s weather conditions, the district’s initial days were filled with enthusiasm as a productive new year of learning took flight. 

The schools held staggered orientations in order to provide students with time to adjust to the new health and safety protocols for arrival and dismissal. Students were familiarized with health and hygiene procedures and other important measures that have been implemented. Sept. 14 marked the first full day for all, and while faces were covered, the excitement was obvious. Students were eager to see their friends, get to know new classmates and meet their teachers, and staff members were happy to be back in their instructional environments.  

This year, elementary students attend school daily while students at the secondary level are on a hybrid schedule that alternates in-person and remote instruction days. A fully remote learning option is being utilized by some students at all levels. 

Hallways are marked in order to maintain social distancing and handwashing and sanitizing stations are available. In the classrooms, desks are spaced 6 feet apart. Students and staff members wear masks throughout the day with breaks permitted at select times. The custodial staff is diligently sanitizing desks, doors and all classroom materials following each school day, using a product that is proven effective against COVID-19. 

A newly launched transportation blog can be viewed here and provides the latest updates on bus delays and route changes. The district looks forward to sharing highlights and achievements as the 2020-21 school year continues.
