Principal's Message 

December 2016

Hickory Happenings

The months of November and December are traditionally very busy and this year is no exception.  The Thanksgiving Canned Food Drive was a great success thanks to the generosity of our families and Girl Scout Troop #425 who helped with the organization and collection. This is a great way for students to become aware that there are others much less fortunate, right here in Torrance and that each of us can do our part to help. Click here for more ...

 Assistant Principal's Message 

  

Maggie Mabery is inspired by her students each day.  Her teaching career has taken her from urban, Houston, Texas to Manhattan Beach Middle School to Hickory Elementary School.  Her drive to learn is endless.  She is always first in line to try something new and not scared to say, “I do not know, let’s figure that out.”   Maggie Mabery is the 2015 California Teacher of the Year and an Apple Distinguished Educator.  While she was the Teacher of the Year, Maggie met with President Obama, Secretary Arne Duncan, and spoke with Secretary John King. In her free time, Mrs. Mabery spends her time with her husband, and two daughters in Torrance, CA.
