Happy Holidays

Saturday, December 17th, 2016

“Jingle Bells, jingle bells!” was heard earlier this morning, as our PHS Choir caroled from classroom to classroom, accompanied by our ukulele-playing Music Teacher, CarolingMr. Charley Miller. The children’s enthusiasm for the holiday season is matched by the special parties and activities that parents and teachers are presenting in each grade today.
Thank you to all our teachers, staff, and administrators who join with parents, grandparents, relatives, and friends to make this time of the year so very special for each child!
Have a wonderful Winter Break, and we’ll see you in the New Year!

Choir Performs at Festival

Saturday, December 3rd, 2016

Proudly wearing their blue choir robes, our PHS Student Choir enthusiastically started their performance at Torrance Memorial’s Holiday Festival with the Full Choirupbeat “I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm!”
Participating in the Medical Center’s three-day long Festival was a first for our PHS Choir, with parents, friends, PHS faculty, staff, and Mrs. Cailler fully enjoying this holiday experience amid the Festival’s gorgeously decorated trees.
Previously, the choir has only sung at campus events. Knowing that this performance was upcoming, the Choir has been enthusiastically practicing and anticipating this event.
PHS Choir Director and Music Teacher Mr. Charley Miller shares the following beautiful experience that occurred at the Festival:Four Girls
“As we arrived at our location prior to performing, a musician was playing Christmas songs on the piano. Spontaneously, one by one, our Choir members gathered around her and began to sing. It was a wonderful and completely impromptu experience.”
Mr. Miller continues, “The parents of our Choir members were incredibly supportive and relished this experience.”
“We really liked singing Christmas songs for our parents and with our friends,” exclaimed a youthful choir member, following the choir’s closing number, “In the Spirit.”
The Festival’s beginning stretches back to 1984 when a group of Torrance Memorial volunteers launched this unique community festival to directly benefit the Medical Center and the care it provides to citizens of the South Bay.
What a wonderful way for our students to begin the holiday season!
