Great Way to Usher in Thanksgiving!  HBNW members can participate by writing a quick, heartfelt letter.
 
Hermosa Valley and View schools are participating in a
openhanded cause for our troops!
 

Thank you to all who have donated unwanted candy to our "Operation Candy"

collection for Operation Gratitude, the USO and our local Air Force base in El Segundo.

 

We will continue to collect candy until Nov 10. Last year we collected over 750 pounds to share with others.

 

As our candy goes out, we usher Thanksgiving in.  In the spirit of thankfulness, and cheering those who cannot be home on Thanksgiving, the PTO is directly mailing candy boxes to LOCAL Air Force personnel overseas.  Most are based in Afghanistan.

 

We are asking for a letter or picture  or small craft from anyone in the class to be included with the box. All letters should read "Dear Airman".

 

Lets share our Hermosa School Spirit and say Thank You loudly.

 

The PTO Thanks you for your community support!

Awareness
HB Fire Chief, David Lantzer

I hope everyone enjoyed their extra hour of sleep this weekend.  More importantly, did we remember to change the batteries in your smoke alarms?  If not, I would like to remind everyone that when we change our clocks, we need to change our batteries.  This is an easy way to remember to ensure we keep fresh batteries in our smoke alarms.  And when we spring forward next March, remember to change the batteries again.

 

You may ask why.  The reason:  Maybe someone took the battery for a game or radio, or removed the battery to stop the chirping (when the battery weakens) or maybe they were going to replace it and forgot.  Because these situations actually occur, the program "Change Your Clock - Change Your Battery" was developed.  If everyone follows this program they should never be subject to a non-working smoke alarm due to a missing or weak battery.  The action is simple and we are reminded each year at Daylight savings time.

Each time we do this we need to change the battery in all the smoke alarms.  If a specific battery type is recommended then that's the one to use.  Whether one is recommended or not, always be sure you are purchasing a fresh battery.  Always check the dates on the battery.

You make up the Community of Hermosa Beach...Get Involved and Stay Informed!
