PALI Institute Field Trip
We have reserved an optional weekend trip to the Pali Institute in Running Springs the weekend of Friday May 13th - Sunday May 15th, 2022 for Portola HGM 6th-8th graders. This will be a parent-led trip for Portola HGM students and this trip is not sponsored by Portola, LAUSD, or MPA.
If you are interested in attending,
PLEASE COMPLETE THIS FORM BY NOVEMBER 5, 2021
to indicate your interest.
The cost is currently estimated between $400-$500, depending on the number of students. The purpose of this form is to gauge the number of students interested in going on the trip.
More information about the camp can be found at: https://www.paliinstitute.com/
If there is enough interest in this trip, a parent presentation will be held via Zoom on Tuesday November 30th at 6pm.
Portola Pumpkin Explosion
On Saturday, October 30th, we will be having an HGM / MPA fall fest, the Portola Pumpkin Explosion at Van Nuys/War Memorial Park from 1-6pm.
Please join us to meet in person and have an outdoors fall mingle!
We would love any help with pizzas and drinks. If you're up for bringing anything, please volunteer here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b094caea92ca64-portola
