,Palos Verdes homes owners have a great opportunity for their children to experience a virtual Faery Hunt while staying at home.

On Saturday, October 3, and Sunday, October 4, 2020 they will be presenting ‚ÄúA Faery Hunt‚Äôs A...

Palos Verdes homes owners with school aged children are working on finalizing their plans to start the 2020-2021 school year on August 26, 2020. Many students have chosen for the Hybrid Learning Models, but quite a few have signed up for the Distance Learning Academy. The schools strict policies for opening, have put many families in a bind. Some have reached out for small pod learning groups so that the children can study with other children in a safe environment.  However, there are not enough groups to satisfy the demand. Having learning pods allows the parents time to work from home or return to their jobs.Elite Dance Studio is offering a school setting where children bring their laptops and participate in their zoom classes for school, then for physical education they can dance, or...
