Zia Fitness

Saturday, January 16th, 2016

“During my experience at Zia Fitness,” writes one of our Sixth Grade girls, “I learned a lot of things that I never would have even thought about. I really enjoyed learning about self-defense, testing my reactions on the vision board, and using the TRX bands!”
A recent addition to our Middle School physical education program includes monthly visits to Zia Fitness Studio in south Torrance (www.zia-fitness.com). PHS parent and Zia proprietor George Toney, worked with our PE teacher, Mrs. Kim Nygaard, in designing programs to teach self-defense and physical fitness to our Sixth, Seventh, and Eighth Grade students. Through the generosity of Mr. Toney and using the incredible resources of Zia Fitness and its certified trainers, our students build self-confidence and real-world awareness, improve their self-discipline, and have fun through games and adventures at Zia.
In addition, Mr. Toney is offering fitness classes, gratis, for PHS faculty and staff, and Mrs. Nygaard has classes for PHS students on Wednesdays from 4:30 to 5:30 pm. Sign-up information for Kindergarten through Third Graders is available in the School Office. PHS parents are cordially invited to visit this new facility (The Pyramid Building, 22939 Hawthorne Blvd., Torrance) and learn all that it has to offer!

Construction Update

Saturday, January 9th, 2016

As you know, construction is well underway on our new 7th & 8th Grade buildings on the St. Luke’s campus across the street! The windows and a good portion of the outside work are completed, which is fortunate now that the “El Nino” rains have arrived. The construction focus is now on the interior of the three buildings. Dry wall is up, and carpets, tile flooring, counter tops, and cabinets have been selected. We are very excited about this fabulous new addition to our school, as we look forward to inviting our parents, alumni, and members of our community for an Open House to experience these beautiful new facilities.
