Marshall Allen Cleavage, midriffs and underwear must be kept under wraps, according to a proposed La Canada High School dress code. "The clothing attire has changed drastically over the past couple of years," La Canada High School Assistant Principal Hope Ricewasser said. "Sometimes it's disruptive to the education process." The school board listened to the first reading of the dress code at its Tuesday meeting. The code basically closely follows the current 7/8 dress code and specifies violations that will be cause for discipline.

Being a teacher or an administrator is no easy task, especially at the junior high level. Although most of my memory of junior high has (thankfully) been repressed, what I do recall is that it was a hormonal time of physical awkwardness and social confusion. Every person goes through a struggle at this time, trying to define who they are. Parents, teachers and friends have to put up with teenagers while they figure out their identity. Finding the balance between letting kids be who they are and making sure that they are not engaging in self-destructive behavior is the responsibility of leadership figures.

Darleene Barrientos John Marshall Elementary School might soon be awash in all blue and white as board members Tuesday spoke in favor of implementing a mandatory uniform policy at the campus, after 10 years of voluntary practice. School administrators and teachers are in favor of changing the school's 10-year-old voluntary uniform policy to a mandatory one to help minimize competition among students and to focus attention on schoolwork. "If the parents want it, we should move forward," board Clerk Pam Ellis said.

Amber Willard NORTHWEST GLENDALE -- Seniors arriving at Hoover High School before graduation Tuesday came in various states of readiness. "I'm a little shocked that I'm graduating," said Emin Andreasian, his purple robe draped over his shoulder before the ceremony on the school's athletic field. Other students were ready to go, like Ileana Lopez and Lina Davitian -- white caps were snug on their heads and robes zipped up. Davitian, like many of her 500-plus classmates, was a little nervous about stepping into a new phase of her life.

"A lot of them don't get out there and dance, but they definitely like to come and hang out with each other," Lucas said.

Gary Moskowitz LA CRESCENTA -- Three hundred local students were admitted to Clark Magnet School this week for the 2002-03 school year, leaving about 130 others on a waiting list. The 300 students who made it were selected through a random lottery -- simply drawing names from a hat, said Clark Parent Teacher Assn. President Gay Varga. Annual admission to Clark is capped at 300. Students now on the waiting list will only be allowed to attend Clark if an accepted student drops out, Varga said.

INTERESTING CLAIMS Glendale has been bisieged by some interesting claims over the last couple of months from people and organizations seeking money for damages. The Glendale Police Assn. is asking for $2,200 from the city to replace a soda machine destroyed at the Glendale Police Department firing range facility. It burned down during the San Rafael Hills fire in December. A woman shot at a Glendale grocery store in January filed a claim for $218 to cover the costs of her car being towed and stored by police while she was recovering from her injuries in the hospital.

Growing up during the Great Depression taught Rose Mary Rovarino to value family, friends and traditions. The 88-year-old Glendale resident worked hard to make ends meet and her parents gave her as much as they could despite the little they had, she said. Rovarino learned the importance of family during difficult times, and after she settled down to start her own, she passed on the values to her children. Since the Depression, family life in America has changed but Rovarino's ideas about what family is hasn't, she said.

A year or so ago, one of the major stationery companies aired a very entertaining commercial that showed two downcast youngsters of elementary school age plodding dejectedly behind an ecstatic male (presumably their father) who coasted along on a shopping cart, throwing school supplies in with giggling enthusiasm. I am certain that everyone who has ever been a parent could laugh, knowing what this was all about: going back to school. The only thing that brightened those dark days when we realized that summer was almost gone and we hadn't done any of the things we had planned to do was shopping for the pencil box. My wife always refers to this piece of necessary equipment as a "school companion."
