The Torrance High 100th Celebration was a lot of fun from Football game to the Concert of the Century, was able to see the brick I purchased that will be there for another 100 years. Got to visit with lots of classmates from all classes, faculty, classrooms and more. 

You can still purchase a book, brick, t-shirt and a piece of the gym floor.  Visit the Torrance High Centennial website.

Book for Sale 

***We also have a classmate who has written a book that is for sale, please check out the tab above under Interesting to see the information***

 

**The Torrance Historical Society is continuing the celebration of Torrance High School's Centennial by hosting a Meet the Author event THIS Sunday, at the Museum.    We've invited Author, Loralee Spradlin, a Torrance Tartar herself (1993), to discuss and sign her new book entitled, Torrance High School.  On this day, we will also have "all things Torrance High" on display in the Museum.

Torrance High School opened in war-time on September 11, 1917.  The new school initially served all school-age children in one building - 19 high school students, and grades one to eight.  By 1923, the elementary students had their own school, and Torrance High stood as the only high school until the 1950s.  Today, it remains the oldest school still in continuous use in the state, and last month it was selected by Architectural Digest Magazine as the most beautiful public high school in California.

Here are the Meet the Author details for Sunday . . . 

When:  Sunday, October 15th
Where:  Torrance Historical Society & Museum - 1345 Post Ave., Torrance 90501

Time:  2:00 PM

Book Cost: Books will be available for purchase ($22) and signing (cash and checks)**

 

In celebration of Torrance High's Centennial, a very special book was put together filled with school history, memorable Tartars and amazing photos. Current THS teacher and alumnae Loralee Spradlin authored this book and had the very difficult task of summarizing 100 fabulous years in only 128 pages. 

Visit https://torrance-high-school-centennial.myshopify.com/…/all… to pre-order your book. There are two options - one for pick-up and one for mailing. This book will be released on August 28, 2017.

Score a Piece of Floor! 
Torrance High School is a National Landmark, and you can own a piece of it!  We're selling pieces of the Torrance High School Main Gym floor. This floor was originally installed in 1962, and was removed during the renovation of the gym. 

The middle of the floor, with the Tartar on it, was cut into 3" x 3" pieces and mounted in 5" x 7" shadow boxes -- complete with a nameplate and a Certificate of Authenticity. Each framed floor piece is being sold for $50 (if paying by cash/money order) or $54 (if using a credit card).

These one-of-a-kind, once-they-are-gone-they-are-gone collectables.

 torrance.high.school@gmail.com or call the Student Activities office at 310.533.4396, ext. 8031. Gym floor pieces can be mailed to you for an additional cost.
