First Annual Sheik-A-Thon at the Famous Hollywood Sign04-14-2014
California weather was at its best on Monday, April 14 as more than 120 students, parents, staff and teachers from Hollywood High School joined with representatives from The Los Angeles Trust for Children's Health, UMMA Health Clinic, and Kaiser Permanente to enjoy a day-long celebration promoting exercise and health. Local councilmember Tom LaBonge and Hollywood High School principal Alejandra Sanchez kicked off the event. "At Hollywood High School, we are looking at school in a more holistic way, in terms of the services we can provide to the students," explained Sanchez. "When students come through our doors, we don't just look at their test scores but try to see them as a whole person. We want to support them in all areas of their well-being."
