About 40 parents of Crescenta Valley High School students turned out for a special meeting called this week after Principal Michele Doll announced she had been promoted to a GUSD administrative post. These concerned parents took great advantage of the chance offered them to tell Supt. Dick Sheehan what they hoped to see in a new principal for one of the district's highest-achieving campuses. Especially given the fact that this meeting was held on a weekday evening, after parents had presumably already put in a full day's work, this was an impressive demonstration of just how serious the folks living in the Crescenta Valley are about the educational environment offered their offspring.

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.

The green tarps are on the move again at Crescenta Valley High School as repairs on building 7000 are completed and construction crews begin work on building 1000. The repairs are due to poor construction during a $41 million remodeling project that had been completed in 2002. Buildings 1000, 5000, 6000 and 7000 were scheduled for repairs after several areas were found to have leaks during heavy rains. The leaks caused damage to walls, which created a breeding ground for mold. A diagnostic-type review of the work found windows with gaps between the frames and the structures, and cracking in the plaster walls.
