Students and teachers of Crescenta Valley High School last week delivered approximately 7,000 cans of food for the Crescenta Valley Sheriff Station's 19th Annual Christmas Toy and Food Drive. The very generous donation will allow each of the 186 families being assisted by CVSS to receive not only food for their holiday dinner but for many more meals. Teacher John Pehar organized the food drive but gives much of the credit for the success of the effort to teachers Matt Schick, Pat Rabe, Kimberly Mathias and Vanessa Blackwood, who really spurred their homeroom students to actively support the drive and encourage their friends to "get with the program."

What were once the most boring issues the young mind could ponder, are now becoming fascinating discussion topics in casual conversations. One of the causes of this new interest among teens is the fact that teachers are incorporating these topics in their curriculum.

Palm Crest Elementary School students and their families flocked to the campus on Saturday for the school PTA’s annual Springamajig fundraiser, a festive outdoor carnival complete with games, food, live music and a cornucopia of silent auction prizes. When not busy chasing each other with squirt guns or playing any number of amusement park-style games, kids scrambled for turns in one of three deluxe bounce houses, a massive inflatable slide and the Mega Euro Bungee — a trampoline-like contraption that propels kids more than 20 feet into the air with the help of an elastic rope harness.

Members of the La Cañada school board agreed Tuesday to put parcel tax proceedings on hold temporarily, until after the November elections at least, and possibly longer. “It is prudent to wait,” said board vice president Joel Peterson, in an opinion shared by his colleagues. Board consensus, supported by advisors from Sidewalk Strategies and True North Research, firms hired by the district to develop and implement a survey of the local community regarding the tax, was that the immediate economic and political climate may be too turbulent to garner an accurate response from the community regarding this issue.
