On Thursday, December 14th the Visual and Performing Arts Magnet will be hosting their Annual Holiday Program at 6pm. This event will also be our last performance in the MPR as it will be demolished over the winter break as a part of our renovation project. For this special final performance we will be serving dinner during intermission. Please come out and support our dancers, musicians, artists and the world famous Crenshaw Elite Choir! Tickets are $20. Please contact Mrs. Santiel at (323) 290-7820 for more information.

Our community day was held October 28th at 10am. We honored our employee's of the year and several volunteers for their hard work and dedication to Crenshaw. This year's theme was a Fall Festival, and in addition to a great breakfast, several families from within the community had a wonderful time playing games and winning prizes. We look forward to next year's Fall Festival and we invite everyone to join us!
The Shaw was representing at the 12th Annual Taste of Soul on October 21st! Several community members and alumni were able to stop by our booth and show their cougar pride.
