The Willows Community School celebrates a milestone in the history of its commitment to educating children with the Dedication of a new campus from 2 pm to 4 on Sunday, January 26, 2014.
The campus is at 8509 Higuera Street, Culver City. The Dedication Program will include remarks by Culver City Mayor Jeffrey Cooper, The Willows Head of School Lisa Rosenstein, and Board Chair Wendy Felson.

Chinese Lion Dancers and a parade by Willows’ students will kick off the ceremony.
Festivities, a DJ, food, creative children’s activities, and informal tours will immediately follow the program. The re-imagined Willows campus incudes a redesign of the Lower Elementary Building, a Library/Media Center moved to the heart of the campus, a new playground, lunch area,
kindergarten yard, dedicated athletic courts, landscaping and shade, an expanded organic garden, new classroom space, a S.T.E.A.M.

voices have been vital to and at the heart of all our design efforts,”
says Head of School Lisa Rosenstein.
