Thank you Parent and Community Members

Thank you parents and community members for your generous support this year for our school and our program.  Our students thrive because you are involved in supporting their education.

PWP Little Kids Rock the Roxy Theater in Hollywood and Breakfast with the Beatles!

PWP believes in arts education for our students!  Our PWP Little Kids Rock bands performed live at the Roxy Theater in Hollywood and on the Breakfast with the Beatles radio program on 95.5 KLOS.  Hundreds of our students have the opportunity to experience playing musical instruments because of the generous support of the Little Kids Rock organization, our dedicated music teacher Mrs. Corallo, Mr. Corallo, Ms. Lee, Mrs. Arbolario, and classroom teachers.  Mr. Corallo has taken the lead in teaching afternoon music lessons to students and leading the PWP bands.  

Math Field Day - PWP Students are Winners!

Congratulations to our PWP Math Field Day team. Our students have worked with Mrs. Simmons, Mrs. Iacono, Mrs. Son and Mrs. Dornberg all year to sharpen their skills in mathematics and team problem solving.   They recently competed in the Los Angeles Countywide math competition against other schools. They were very successful and were awarded medals for their performance.  

Thank you Port of LA!

The 5th grade class would like to thank the Port of Los Angeles for their donation of $1,000 toward the Catalina Island Marine Institute field trip last month.  Due to the generosity of the Port of LA and other donors, all students who wanted to attend the trip were able to do so.  The 5th graders returned from the trip full of new knowledge of sharks, rays, fish, algae and plankton, and their habitat, the ocean.

Science Olympiad at PWP

Twenty-four students in grades 3-5 competed in our first annual PWP Science Olympiad where student teams worked to complete in seven different applied science and engineering challenges.  We were amazed, astonished and proud of their accomplishments. We were also quite impressed that no eggs broke during the egg drop event! Kudos to our students and volunteers for making this an exciting learning event!

Arts Experiences at Park Western Place

Arts education and experiences are important to our students.  In addition to the ongoing field trips to the J. Paul Getty Museum, our students have been fortunate to experience two special arts performances in December.  Most students had the opportunity to attend a live theater performance of Roald Dahl's The BGF, performed by The Troupe, a San Pedro youth theater group here at Park Western Place.  Several of our own Park Western Place students stared in the performance!  A new book was also given to all students in attendance.  Thank you Alison Freedman of The Troupe for making this possible.

All of our third grade students also had the opportunity to attend a performance of The Nutcracker Ballet, performed by the San Pedro Ballet Company at the wonderful Warner Grand Theater here in San Pedro.  The performance was magical!  We are proud of  all of our students who danced in the performance.  Our LAUSD Board of Education member Dr. Vladovic helped to make this trip possible by providing transportation for our students.   Thank you San Pedro Ballet Company, Warner Grand Theater, Lora Caudill, and Dr. Vladovic!
