The San Marino Unified School District doesn’t exactly have to beat the bushes when it has an opening among its teaching ranks. The district’s reputation for academic excellence precedes it, apparently.
“I think we have competitive class sizes — low compared to neighboring districts — which is attractive,” said SMUSD’s superintendent, Dr. Alex Cherniss. “I think we have a great reputation: Our kids are high achieving. Teachers want to work with kids who are engaged, and our kids are exactly that.” Continue reading “SMUSD Welcomes New Teachers, Staff”

Cal Am Director of Operations Garry Hofer emailed water-use tables to city officials last week showing that San Marino used 32% less water in June and July than it had over the same months in 2014. In May, the city did even better, dropping its use by a whopping 48%. Continue reading “Spigots Turned Down Locally, New Data Shows”

On a recent warm Saturday morning, several dozen people assembled outside the entrance to the Huntington Library. The gates wouldn’t open for another hour and a half, but these early birds weren’t there to see the art galleries, the library or the botanical gardens. What they were after was fruit — specifically, the seven acres of Valencia oranges adjacent to the Huntington’s north entry road. Continue reading “Paying it Forward With Fresh Fruit”

The Pasadena Outlook has been covering Pasadena since the fall of 2008. We have nurtured relationships with the large, but homogeneous community of private elementary, middle and high school families, with Pasadena city officials and with the incredible array of philanthropic organizations that call the Rose City home.
The Pasadena Outlook is delivered by mail every Thursday to more than 17,400 homes and businesses in the Pasadena area. An additional 5,100 copies are delivered to locations throughout the Pasadena area, including various private schools, real estate offices and many of the local Starbucks stores.
The La Cañada Flintridge Outlook has been publishing since 1998. We have extensive, long-standing contacts with city government, with the La Cañada Unified School District, and with sports activities at all levels. We maintain active relationships with the Crescenta-Cañada YMCA, Verdugo Hills Hospital, Descanso Gardens Guild, Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Station, the L.A. County Fire Department’s local stations, local artistic and performing groups and many other groups in the community.
The LCF Outlook is the recipient of both the prestigious Les Tupper Community Service award and the PTA’s Founder’s Day award. The Les Tupper award recognizes organizations for their exceptional support of charitable programs and community projects. The PTA Founder’s Day award recognizes an organization for its devotion to local schools. The LCF Outlook is also the recipient of numerous outstanding Business Achievement Awards, presented by the La Cañada Flintridge Chamber of Commerce.
The LCF Outlook is delivered every Thursday to approximately 10,900 homes and businesses in the 91011 zip code. An additional 3,200 copies are delivered to more than 100 locations with high foot-traffic volume in LCF, Pasadena, Glendale, La Crescenta and Montrose.
The Outlook doesn’t ignore the big issues, but we make room for the small, but ultimately more meaningful issues that land right in our reader’s backyards: what is happening in my community and who is involved?
The Outlook answers important questions, such as:
- Who is planning the next charity gala?
- Which charity truly emphasizes aid for the homeless?
- Where can I learn about parenting skills?
- When is the next high school band concert?
- Why did the local football coach take a job in another city?
Outlook Newspapers believes that strong community newspapers are essential to building strong communities. We strive to produce economically sound newspapers that foster pride in the communities they serve and to make a difference in the quality of life for residents and merchants.
Our Motto: Building strong communities, one smile at a time.
