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."

When Crescenta Valley High School seniors walk across the stage to accept their diplomas in June, it will mark the first time the school's students will attend graduation ceremonies on their own campus. This year's ceremony comes 50 years after the school handed out its first diplomas in 1963, three years after the school was established in 1960. "What we have here is a truly historic event," said Katherine Fundukian Thorossian, asst. supt. of Glendale Unified. From 1963 to 2011, Crescenta Valley seniors were graduated at Stengel Field, a park several miles from the school, where the baseball bleachers could accommodate as many family and friends as seniors wanted to invite to the ceremony.
