JO ANN STUPAKIS Crescenta Valley Committed to Athletic Needs raised the funds needed to install a new artificial turf field and all-weather track at Crescenta Valley High School. Partially through fund-raising efforts, with the majority of money donated through an anonymous community member, this dedicated group never gave up its crusade to improve the track and field, which receives approximately 29,000 users each month. As the parent of a former and future Crescenta Valley High School students, and on behalf of the entire community, we are extremely grateful for this wonderful gift.

Jaimi Zwerling-Jeffrey, Glenoaks Elementary PTA president, penned a report about one of the group's recent projects. "Representatives from Glenoaks Elementary PTA and Principal Bob Modrzejewski had the privilege of personally delivering the school's book-drive donations to Childrens Hospital Los Angeles' Literally Healing program," she said. Launched in 2000 with a grant from the Los Angeles Times/Times Mirror Foundation and the expertise of the program's bibliotherapist, Claire Austin, the program's centerpiece is its extensive therapeutic library, the only one of its kind in the nation.

Although classes begin Sept. 4 for schools on the traditional schedule, year-round schools, like Horace Mann or R.D. White, don’t miss a beat as they provide a full array of studies each month. Andrea Crissman, PTA president at R.D. White, described a PTA-sponsored program currently in action that encourages students to be creative. In its third year, the Art Docent Program has been bringing art education to R.D. White since past PTA presidents Yuri Clingerman and Kim Haase started it. This program was the initial brainchild of Sarah Ruzicka, a former PTA parent at a neighboring school, who developed the art lineup based on similar art education programs elsewhere.
