Holiday Tree Fundraiser…

It’s that magical time of year, the air is a little colder, the low winter sun seems to blind you no matter what direction you look, Honeybaked Ham Commercials seem to be on every TV show you watch, and oh yes…  the WHEUPA Tree lot fundraiser is about to begin! Trees go on sale at the beginning of December.

Be sure to come and check out our selection of trees.  Help spread the word by telling your family and friends to visit the WHEUPA tree lot in the West High parking lot at the corner of Del Amo Blvd and Victor Street. The purchase of a holiday tree helps support the West High Entertainment Unit.

…Volunteers Required!

And of course we need your help! For any of you who have not heard of this before it is our second of three fund raisers we run throughout the year to keep down the cost of contributions and raise the profile of the Unit. There are three basic functions in the tree lot, there is the person who works the chainsaw for a fresh cut, the folks who take the money and those amazing students who lug and load the trees. The Students sign up in the classroom and the parents use the link below. Please sign up for the early shifts first, the odds are we will sell out early as we do each year. But please sign up where ever you can your help is required for us to have a successful fundraiser! Its a great way to socialize with other Entertainment Unit families and talk about this amazing past performance season!

Torrance Schools Family & Friends Exhibition

Torrance High School sponsored the First Annual all-school field show exhibition on Thursday November 19th. West, North and Torrance high schools each took turns performing their seasons field show while students, family and friends watched from the stands. South was unable to attend. It was a great way for our students to see each others field show from the spectators side of the stadium rather than the back or side view. All in all it was a fun evening of entertainment. Below is the video.
