Buckley Observes 25th Anniversary of Northridge Earthquake
On Thursday, January 17, Buckley observed the twenty-fifth anniversary of the devastating 6.7 magnitude Northridge Earthquake.
The earthquake was an enormously important moment for Los Angeles. The Middle/Upper School library put together an informational display with images of the aftermath and some facts about the earthquake, including where the epicenter was, how far the damage extended, etc.
Several faculty members were able to share their own personal experiences, allowing students to connect the images of destruction with the testimonies of those who were able to witness it.
Upper School students of Spanish 3 Honors, Spanish 4 Honors, and AP Spanish attended the dress rehearsal of the opera, El último sueño de Frida y Diego, and stopped for lunch at the Pueblo de Los Angeles on Olvera Street.
