Pasadena, CA – The Alumni Association of La Salle High 
School hosted the return of the much anticipated biennial 
Taste of La Salle on March 19th on campus. Over 350 guests 
tempted their taste buds with delicious food and drink from 
the 36 participating restaurants and beverage vendors. 
The Opportunity Drawing drew a lot of interest with 10 delicious 
prizes up for grabs. Ash Rizk won the highly coveted Grand Prize 
“Eat Out For a Year” basket which included more than $2,500 
worth of gift cards to local eateries. The event raised $24,000 for 
the Alumni Association Scholarship Fund which benefits incoming 
freshmen and graduating seniors. 

 The next Taste of La Salle will be held in 2018...and is sure to be 
even tastier!

Pasadena, CA – The Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) invites families with 
young children to explore the district’s preschool and kindergarten options at the 
second annual Early Education Extravaganza on Wednesday, April 6, 2016, from

transitional kindergarten, preschool, and kindergarten opportunities, and feature 
musical performances, student art displays, family reading and math activities, 
summer “kinder prep” resources, and much more. Families can also register for 
kindergarten and learn how to get ready for the first day of school.“The early years 
of a child’s education set the foundation for growth and progress,” said PUSD 
Superintendent Brian McDonald, Ed.D. “We invite families to come and discover 
the world of opportunities in PUSD schools.”

 For children turning three by September 1, 2016, PUSD Early Childhood
