Lincoln Field Renovation - Synthetic Turf - Permit Access Only

Posted By Robert M. Bernacchi, Monday, August 7, 2017

I recently learned of the City’s and/or School District’s decision to re-do the surface of the athletic filed at Lincoln School with artificial turf. In addition, I have been told that the intention is to make the field available on a permit-only basis. 

I am a tax-paying resident of Santa Monica. I have three kids in the SMMUSD, one at Lincoln. I vote in local elections and donate money regularly to the school district.

I am vehemently opposed to this athletic field, the only one of its kind, being transformed into a synthetic, pay-for-use space. The cons of artificial turf are too long to list but include environmental issues, health issues currently being studied, water runoff, temperature, injury, and so on. 

But with no open, public access, where does a resident take their son or daughter to play catch, kick the ball around, jog on proper flooring safe from traffic and other?

Can anyone verify that a.) the turf will be synthetic, and b.) that it will have permit-only access? And what can we do to reverse this decision?

SCREENAGERS - Documentary (Paul Revere Middle School)

Posted By Administration, Thursday, September 8, 2016
"Screenagers" is a must-see documentary for the entire family if you have a teen who:

1. Has a smartphone 
2. Goes on social media
3. Plays video games

I'm assuming that the teen in your family falls into at least one of these categories!

SCREENAGERS probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including the director's own, and depicts messy struggles, over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Through surprising insights from authors and brain scientists, solutions emerge on how we can empower kids to best navigate the digital world. 

What: Screenagers film
When: Tuesday, Sept. 13th, 2016
Time: 7:00pm-9:00pm
Where: Paul Revere Middle School, 1450 Allenford Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90049
Cost: FREE (although there is a $10 suggested donation that goes to the Booster Club)

RSVP HERE. Copy and paste this link into your browser --->

Incoming Samohi Orchestra Parents

Posted By Alisa Facchini, Friday, May 9, 2014
Dear 8th Grade Orchestra Parents,

We hope you received an invitation in the Samohi Orchestras' welcome packet to the Orchestra Parents Association's next general meeting on Monday, May 12th, 7 p.m., in the Samohi Orchestra Room!  We'd love to see you there!

We are rescheduling the student workshop and elite instrument demonstration by Charles W. Liu Fine Violins.

Still on tap is a fun photo collage of highlights from our year, including Symphony’s spring break European tour, on the Orchestra Room’s new audiovisual equipment—made possible through the fundraising efforts of the Orchestra Parents Association!

Please join us to meet Orchestra Directors Joni Swenson and Jason Aiello, learn how you can help with our fantastic program, and mingle with high school parents over refreshments.

You also are invited to our end-of-year Orchestra Parents Association potluck and party on June 2nd.  Details will follow!
