Palisades News Letters: Thanks to the Optimists

Thank you so much for selecting Better Angels as a 2017 Pacific Palisades Optimist Club grant recipient. We could not be more grateful! Our students took the official ACT a few weeks ago and are anxiously awaiting their scores. We look forward to their improvement. We also just hosted our Welcome Workshop this past weekend, where nearly 50 students and parents joined us for an all- day workshop on college applications. All this was made possible by the Optimist Club. Thank you, with gratitude.
