R. D. White students have first Art Exhibit R. D. White Elementary School hosted its first Art Exhibit on May 12 showcasing 780 pieces of art — one from every student in the school. The exhibit was a celebration of the school's new Art Program. Supported by both the R. D. White Foundation and the PTA, the Art Program saw great changes during the 2009-10 academic year as the school moved from art lessons taught by parent volunteers to a standards-based curriculum taught by professional artist and teacher Mike Alcouloumre . In response to a teacher survey, the R. D. White Foundation hired Alcouloumre in the spring of 2009.

GLENDALE — Rosemont Middle School Principal Michele Doll was tapped Wednesday to take the helm of Crescenta Valley High School, which is less than a mile from her current campus. Doll leaves Rosemont after two years as principal. Dick Sheehan, who will be district superintendent next school year, said Doll was the ideal candidate for her insider knowledge and outsider experience. “You had a combination of parents and community members that wanted someone with internal knowledge of the community, and you had another faction who said we want someone with an outside perspective,” he said.

Supportive of GCC students? protest Requiring a two-thirds majority to pass a state-budget-created havoc with many Glendale Community College students who already have economic problems (??It?s anti-democratic,? ? March 24) is bad. California education funding is already near the bottom of 50 states. Since I am an older student at Glendale Community College, I sympathize with the protesting students in these difficult times. It is hard enough to pay rent, put food on the table and pay for health insurance.

When Crescenta Valley High School instituted a voluntary student drug testing program, a district first, for some it was a sign of innovation and progress in addressing a festering problem, but for others, like student Wayne Park, the distinction was dubious. The 18-year-old high school senior signed up for anonymous testing, but only because he said he has nothing to prove. He doesn’t use drugs, and said most of his peers don’t either. “I personally hate the drug issue, and it embarrasses me for the school,” Park said.

LA CRESCENTA — Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Station officials confirmed community concerns Thursday night that drug activity has been increasing in the past five years. While drug activity has increased in the Crescenta Valley, sheriff’s station Capt. Dave Silversparre said at the Crescenta Valley Drug & Alcohol Prevention Coalition meeting that the issue is not rampant. “If it was out of control in the La Crescenta area, I think we would have seen an increase in calls for service,” he said.
