Trio at Lucky Baldwin’s

Trio at Lucky Baldwin’s

One More Good Reason to Become a Teacher

One More Good Reason to Become a Teacher

Kudos to former Hometown Pasadena editor John Stephens for making this video this morning at Sierra Madre School. The students, faculty and parents, with the help of the Sierra Madre Fire Department, staged a heart-tugging flashmob (which began as a fake fire drill) to say goodbye to retiring principal Gayle Bluemel, who we profiled right […]
