The song “Hello, Goodbye” by the Beatles describes a special flag ceremony that will be hosted at R.D. White Elementary at 8:30 a.m. on April 30. The event will let students express a proper farewell to Suzanne Risse, former principal, while officially welcoming Narek Kassabian, current principal.

Wendy Hunter, chair of an ad-hoc committee of parents and staff at the school, is leading this event to recognize Risse, who worked at R.D. White for 14 years. The longtime principal made a transition during summer vacation to become principal at Monte Vista Elementary.

Due to the timing, students and parents did not have a chance to express their deep appreciation to Risse. Following the ceremony, light refreshments will be served in the courtyard outside of the library. Former students, parents and staff as well as local residents may attend.

A Dance Drill Revue will be presented at 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday in Glendale High’s newly named John Wayne Performing Arts Center. Glendale High will hold its Armenian Genocide Remembrance Assembly on April 23. There is a student and staff holiday on April 24.

The classes of teachers Gerald Sharp and Kathy Malcolm are raising money to help Longonot Primary School in Kenya by selling bookmarks. Last year, $500 was raised.

A recent presentation by the nonprofit Bloom Where Planted, which works to improve education in the African countries of Kenya and Rwanda, kicked off a week of African-focused activities. These include buddy-reading of African books at 1 p.m. on Thursday. Bookmarks will be sold before school and during recess.
