June 9, 2017



Come join the Westside Teachers and Family Liaison on the last day of school in a celebration of a year well done! Lesson plans provided in history, science, language arts, visual arts and math.

You know you’ve arrived in Santa Monica, California when you see the iconic Ferris wheel of the Santa Monica Pier jutting into the inviting waters of the Pacific Ocean. Set at Santa Monica’s westernmost point, the Santa Monica Pier is a staple of this picturesque seaside community. Packed with family-friendly activities, restaurants and shops, it also has stunning views and over a century’s worth of history.

Constructed in 1909, the Santa Monica Pier was the first concrete pier on the West Coast. It quickly gained a reputation among locals as the best fishing spot in Santa Monica. The Looff Hippodrome, now a National Historic Landmark and home to a beautiful carousel, opened in 1916, followed by the iconic carousel in 1939. In 1941, the iconic Santa Monica Yacht Harbor neon sign was unveiled; this is the place for the perfect selfie!

Unlimited Ride Wristbands allow guests to ride any of the 12 rides as many times as they like. The attractions, Gyro Loop and Beach Bounce, are not included with the Unlimited Ride Wristband. For the Pacific Park age and height restrictions for rides please use link

Open to all homeschoolers and their families! All students must have a chaperone for this event. No drop offs, please.
