Happy Sunday!
And a belated happy Thanksgiving as well! We are so grateful for our readers and take our job bringing you the 90045 news very seriously.

News came last week that the old Westchester fire station has been recommended for sale, not development by the City for affordable housing. It remains to be seen what somebody will want to build on that site, but that is a discussion we can save for another day. Given the dismal sales at the project on the old Frio’s site, maybe we can dodge a developer that wants to stuff the lot with AB1818 housing.

LAUSD is taking another run at offering a second Middle School program in Westchester. While I understand that there local families who support the existing MS, I also understand that many families in 90045 have turned away from the local program. Playa Vista Elementary School has a highly successful STEM program they developed with LMU. That group of families has been instrumental in driving the new MS program. There is a meeting at Westchester High School in the auditorium on Tuesday at 6 pm to discuss the proposed program, which is intended to be an option for PV, PdR and 90045 families.

Speaking of schools, I was honored to sit on a panel recently for the CA Charter School Association to interview school board candidates for March’s race. One candidate was particularly colorful. Stay tuned. We’ll be hearing a lot more about the race in January.

As you plan holiday activities for your family and out of town guests this season, be sure to look at the 90045 calendar of events. We’re working overtime over here to get all the most interesting local and local-adjacent activities on the calendar. Did you know that Playa Provisions hosts an annual Snow Day in PdR? Don’t miss that gem coming up in two weeks.

Here are links to a couple of news items that caught our eye this week:

LMU is offering the public an app to get campus emergency alerts
LAUSD Eyes New Middle School In Westchester
Finding Peace In Chaotic Times
Schedule For LAPD Pacific Santa Sleigh Stops
The Sand Berms Are Up In Playa del Rey

Have a great week!
