Distanced learning did not stop students and faculty of Sierra Madre Middle School from participatimg 
in PUSD's Unity Day, the signature event of National Bullying Prevention Month,!

The event promotes joining together to create healthier communities through kindness, acceptance 
of difference, and inclusion. As part of our annual celebration, all members of the 
SMMS school community are encouraged to Stand Up to Bullying by wearing Orange to show 
their support for students who have been bullied. 

Due to COVID-19, our celebration was virtual this year and students and teachers submitted 
their pictures for posting on our school's Facebook page as well as our SMMS Students page. 
Several of our students also had the opportunity to take part in our District's Bullying Prevention 
Poster Contest.



It’s FALL, the temperatures are warmer this year and holidays are 
quickly approaching, we fear! Halloween Happenings will be different 
in the City of Sierra Madre. The typical “trick or treating” and city 
street closures on Alegria are not being permitted this Halloween 
given the pandemic. COVID makes it unsafe for families but NEVER FEAR, the Community Services 
Team is here! October 31st falls on Saturday and instead of one day, search all week long for treats hidden 

 We can’t tell you when or exactly where, but there will be 200-300 eggs hidden daily in the City with 
fun tricks or treats, so beware. Amongst those eggs will be 5 tickets per day of varying Halloween colors, 
seek what you may. Hunt, search, run and climb, but dress in your costume and have a great time. 
Make sure to social distance, wear your masks, and steer 6-feet clear of others; but bring along your pod 
of fathers, mothers, sisters or brothers!

If you find a ticket, make sure to read the instructions carefully, as this is not the same treat we would 
give out normally. There is the name of an organization or business in town, it will be provided on your 
ticket so check all around.

Most importantly, take lots of photos, we would like to see your costume, AND if you are an adult join 
us for the contest on Zoom. Tag us on Facebook and Instagram, let us know if you have had fun; and 
by the way, the adult costume must be a pun. The pun can be funny, happy, or spooky just make sure it 
is family-friendly and kooky! Your submissions are all due online you will see, so look for the flyer, this 
is all free for our Community.

The details will be shared on Facebook at Sierra Madre Community Services, as well as Instagram at 
@sm_community_services; or visit the Community Services Department webpage by going to http://

For any questions, The Community Services Department contact is 626-355-5278.
