Treats for Troops

A "BIG" thank you to all who donated to Treats for Troops. Mike from San Pedro Packages for Patriots was so happy he hugged me and thanked me over and over for bringing down the cards and many bags of candy from our students. He truly appreciates our donations for his project to help our servicemen and women serving abroad. May you all have a blessed Thanksgiving.

In His Service, Mrs. Ginny Mondragon

PRAY- RUN- GO the Extra Mile

This is a way I’d like to carry on my mom’s legacy of faith, prayer and exercise- all into one:
Activity for
Youths (and adults too!)

What is it? Activity to promote physical and spiritual growth.
When is it? Fridays 15 min after school on the school track around the field.
Why? To increase physical strength, cardiovascular health and endurance while also taking time to talk to God after our busy school days and before busy weekends.
GOALS: *ANNUAL GOAL FOR EACH STUDENT 4 miles for students K-4, and 10 miles for older kids (5-8). (All participants earn a free dress.)
**OPTIONAL PRIZE GOALS: K-4, and 5-8 runners with the most miles accumulated per quarter receive a snack from the snack shack. Each lap a student runs/walks earns them 1 tally mark on their cards. 10 tally marks = one mile. Runners may run more than one mile per Friday, and tally marks carry over onto the next Friday. Please direct any questions to Coach Quella at (310) 831-0848 x 1207 or

Meet Ken Hillman

Mr. Hillman is our new after school traffic monitor. He is a new dad to our school this year with a daughter in 7th grade. He is a bit overqualified for this new role, but is happy to serve and help keep us safe in the parking lot. He comes to us with an extensive background in law enforcement as a retired Commanding Officer with the Los Angeles Police Department and terrorist expert. After retiring from the LAPD, Mr. Hillman opened his own security company with a staff of over 500 safety officers throughout the country serving in both the private and public sector. While directing traffic he also monitors the street light at Western and Caddington. You may see him pressing the walk button in an effort to get more cars through a green light from the parking lot onto Western. When you see him out there, give him a little thank you wave!
