About 11,000 students are expected to head back to Carlsbad schools Wednesday, the same number as two years ago. But this year they’ll be greeted by nearly 60 fewer teachers and a school year shortened by three days. High schoolers will find their classrooms bulging with an average of 39 classmates (NCT, June 28, School Trustees adopt $77M budget).

Carlsbadistan’sJazz In The Park shuts it down this year with crowd favorites Johnny Polanco Orchestra as the final show in another great summer of Carlsbadistan music on August 24, 2012 at Calavera Hills Park.
As the fearless leader of the ultimate West Coast Latin party band, Polanco, who hails from the Caribbean by way of New York, serves as multi-instrumentalist, composer and arranger. Over the years the group has solidified its reputation for a sound described by Latin music chronicler Lina Lecaro as “the kind of infectious, rhythmic, multilayered Latin music that makes even the most timid wallflower abandon all restraint and give it a whirl on the dance floor.”
If you haven’t made it out to a 2012 Jazz in The Park this will be your last chance. Show begins at 6 PM. Calavera Hills Park is located at 2997 Glasgow Dr. in Carlsbad.
