Supervisor Antonovich, Jeri Dye Lynch, Donnelle Dye, and Bobbie Dye

 Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich proclaimed the week of October 14-20th as National Teen Drivers Safety Week in Los Angeles 
County and recognized the efforts of the Conor Lynch Foundation in raising awareness about teen driving safety. 

 “Proclaiming National Teen Drivers Safety Week in Los Angeles County will honor Conor’s memory and bring attention to the dangers 
of driving while distracted,” said Antonovich. 

 On the afternoon of October 19, 2010 in Sherman Oaks, 16-year-old Conor Lynch was killed when a distracted teenage driver struck 
him while he was crossing Woodman Avenue with his high school cross country team. 

The Conor Lynch Foundation benefits new and existing programs that raise awareness and promote the safety of pedestrians, runners, 
cyclists and young drivers. Visit the Conor Lynch Foundation at: .

From PUSD Weekly 
Newsflash - 





At its meeting October 9, the 
PUSD Board of Education approved 
the establishment of Sierra 
Madre Middle School as a 
separate grades 6-8 entity from 
Sierra Madre Elementary in the 
2013-2014 academic year. The 
district’s successful Mandarin 
Immersion program, located 
at Field Elementary for grades 
K-5, will also eventually expand 
to the middle school grades at 
the Sierra Madre Middle School 
campus. Except for attendance 
zone residents, students who enter 
kindergarten at Sierra Madre 
Elementary School in 2013-2014 
will no longer be guaranteed 
placement at the middle school. 
Current students will be “grandfathered” 
for placement in the 
middle school.

Movie Reviews Especially for Teens & ‘Tweens

While at first this movie seems 
like just another flunk comedy, ‘Pitch 
Perfect’ is surprisingly good. I found 
myself laughing even at the jokes that 
I thought weren’t be very funny, which 
shows that the director (Jason Moore) 
and screenwriter (Kay Cannon) put a 
lot of work into making this hilarious 
and interesting. 

 Aspiring DJ Beca (Anna Kendrick) 
has been forced to go the the college 
where her father teaches. However, she 
yearns to go to L.A. and get famous, 
which her father promises to allow if 
she goes to college for a year and truly 
does not like it. Eventually, Beca joins 
her school’s all girl singing group the 
Barden Bellas, who are led by Aubrey 
(Anna Camp) and Chloe (Britanny 
Snow). Together, Beca and the Bellas 
must climb to the top to clear their 
name and defeat the rival all boy group, 
the Treblemakers.

 With an unusually intriguing plot 
that pulls this movie along, unlike 
other comedies where the humor takes 
the lead, ‘Pitch Perfect’ is a new age 
comedy that will please both old and
