Life is renewing itself right in front of you ? can you see it happening?

Springtime at Paradise Canyon brought the return of the annual Fifth Grade Bizarea. Bizarea is a program started by longtime PCY teacher, Carol Bishop, who is now retired. It is an economics project for the fifth graders where they set up a variety of shops, and the other students in the school get to use pretend money to buy their items. All of the merchandise up for sale is either homemade or donated by the fifth-grade shop owners, including baked goods, toys, books, and wagon rides.

The stirring quote that always pops into my head after seeing spring flowers pop up in our yard is from Alfred, Lord Tennyson: “… in the spring, a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love. “ In truth, the young man reference doesn’t apply here any more, and the love part (since I’m OK in that department) applies, perhaps, to the love of taking a nap in the spring. However, along with the flowering azaleas and rapidly-fleeting wisteria, this season brings spring cleaning.

The pine tree we planted has grown tall. The cones tumble down, full of sap. Hummingbirds nest in the branches. The mama birds dive bomb when I walk by. They want to attack me, divert me and protect their young. Down the hill, dozens of hummingbirds live in a scrub oak. The males are brightly colored and iridescent. Their feathers glisten in the sun. The female hummingbirds are less colorful. I feel guilty that I don't know their names. City dwellers traipse out to Descanso Gardens to “go birding.” They carry binoculars, cameras and iPhones to record their findings.

This year, the school's student council members voted to add a charitable twist to their annual spring See's Candy Fundraiser. Candy purchasers had the opportunity to purchase $4 items for charity.

On behalf of all the parents and kids in the community, I would like to thank all of those involved in lighting the athletic fields at Oak Grove School for their hard work and financial contributions. As the AYSO soccer season "kicks off," kids will have a local field to use for evening games and practices. When softball starts in the springtime, Oak Grove will allow practices and games after 5 p.m. which was the last time previously available. And only when you must drive the 210 Freeway at 5:30 to a lighted soccer field in east Pasadena, will you fully appreciate the new lights.
