“Why should California leaders save you and your peers a spot in college?” Entries are separated into two levels Middle School (grades 6-8) and High School grades (9-12) with prizes awarded at the both levels. Entries are evaluated on effectiveness of message, ability to attract and hold attention, creativity, accuracy of information, and whether they are clear and compelling. Within each category, scholarships are awarded at the following levels: $500, $1000, and $2500. Students who submit a TV Ad entry as a group will share the award equally. All judging takes place between March 15 and June 1, 2010. Scholarship winners will be announced after June 1, 2010. No one person can win more than one scholarship, award, or prize of any kind.
Each student may submit one entry in each of the three categories. Students are to mail their entries to Contest Entry, 900 Wilshire Blvd., Suite 924, Los Angeles, CA 90017 no later than March 15, 2010 (11:59 pm). All contest participants will receive college preparation materials and a certificate of recognition, and their entries will be shared with state legislatures to make sure their voices are heard about the issue of college access. Students participating in the “Save Me a Spot in College” Scholarship Contest will learn about college, help promote college participation amongst their peers, and make sure state leaders are informed about the importance of college access and success.

ASBESTOS MANAGEMENT PLAN
“Every six months, specially trained personnel will visit our school to check the condition of any asbestos-containing building material. A copy of the inspector’s written report will be included in the school’s Asbestos Management Plan. Minor asbestos abatement work may be performed due to normal maintenance activities during the coming year. Any large-scale abatement, if such occurs, will be preceded by a specific notice at that time. All abatement work will be followed by a report of such activities and will be included in our Asbestos Management Plan, which is available in the main office for review.”
Parents, a survey form regarding our school is available online, we have also sent this survey home with your child. Your input is valuable to us. If you have not completed the survey you may still do so and return it to the Title I Office. There are no right or wrong answers. The results of this survey will be summarized and become part of the Single School Plan for Student Achievement.
