I applied for summer school at Crescenta Valley High School the day after they distributed the forms. A lot of kids wonder why anyone would want to take summer school if they weren't being forced to. I really wanted to take chemistry this summer because then I could take drama as an elective during the year. Then, on schedule hand-out day, my counselor said I didn't make it in because my summer school application was turned in too late. They could only accept the first 120 students.

Erik Boal More than 11 years after winning the lone CIF Southern Section boys' basketball title in their school's 40-year history, the five starters on La Canada High's 1991-92 squad still appreciate the value of teamwork. The integral members of the Spartans' Division IIIA championship team -- three of whom are now coaching basketball at various levels and another who recently gave up playing semi-pro ball to focus on other career endeavors -- have no problem admitting that Tom Hofman has boasted lineups that were more talented than their title-winning group.

From Staff Reports A historical perspective: Leave it to Frank Pace to draw a parallel between one of the most important soccer matches of Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy's season and one of the most significant events in the history of international sporting competition. The Tologs allowed two goals in the first five minutes of their Mission League match Jan. 31 at West Hills Chaminade, both after questionable calls were made in favor of the Eagles, and wound up suffering a 3-0 setback.

Gary Moskowitz Geometry and chemistry classes aren't going so well for Manushak Kbjian this semester. Fall semester finals at Clark Magnet High School begin next week, so the 16-year-old junior is spending a lot of time this week at peer tutoring sessions to help her prepare. Manushak and nearly 50 other students sit down at round tables in the school's auditeria every day for about 30 minutes of one-on-one help from their peers. The peer-tutoring program has been active on campus for about three years.

Alecia Foster LA CRESCENTA -- Areg Hayrapetian's eyes lit up as he explained his science project: "The Effect of the Number of Divisions on the Accuracy of the Area." It's a mouthful to say and a bit complicated to explain but Hayrapetian did so with ease. "I like mathematics," he said with a smile. The seventh-grader was one of four students at Chamlian Armenian School who won in the 51st annual Los Angeles County Science Fair. Hayrapetian took third place in mathematics, while Maral Der Sarkissian took first in chemistry, Shant Krikorian took first in physics and astronomy, and Lara Injeyan captured first in engineering research.
