If it could happen there, it could happen here. And like all great national tragedies, we all took part in the process of healing and support. In Burbank, about 150 elementary school students, teachers, elected officials and residents gathered at Jefferson Elementary School to honor those who lost their lives that day at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Judy Seckler CLARK MAGNET SCHOOL Clark Magnet School teacher John Laue won an all-expense-paid trip to Japan, and it wasn't a game show that made the trip possible. Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A. sponsored a merit-based competition for high school teachers in six states -- California, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri and West Virginia -- where Toyota operates major facilities. Laue, an English, psychology and U.S. History teacher, was one of 50 educators selected for a two-week trip from June 8-23, where he visited Tokyo, Kyoto and Hiroshima to get a firsthand look at the country's cultural, educational and industrial institutions.

Buck Wargo GLENDALE -- Hot weather has helped pack Pacific Park Pool, but the same can't be said for the two high school pools used by the public for the first time. The pools opened Monday and attendance at Pacific Park has been high, said Robb Courtney, the city's recreation and community services administrator. On Thursday, 275 people were swimming there. That is well above the approximately 80 people swimming at Glendale and Hoover High schools on Thursday.

As a La Crescenta resident, the school-wide spelling bee is a really interesting event. Even though elementary school education is mandatory in the United States, many students are not able to write some words. Some students, mostly boys, do not like to read, and their reading ability is poor. Many students have a problem reading and spelling. Their ability is not developed. In my opinion, the best motivation is interest. Many educators recommend helping the student get interested in studying.

By this time next week, I will no longer have kids at R.D. White Elementary School. I know what you are thinking … so what? Children move out of elementary school every year. While that's true, it's less frequent when a family has a child at one particular elementary school for 11 years, like we did. With the exception of one year, when I was living in La Crescenta, a Huerta has been enrolled at R.D. White for more than a decade. So it is with a genuine sense of appreciation that I pen a few words of gratitude to all those dedicated teachers, aides, office staffers, custodians and every other person there who taught my children the fundamentals of reading, writing, math and a whole lot more.

Officials are now eyeing Valley View and Dunsmore elementary schools because their overall enrollments are lower than average. Glendale United Supt. Dick Sheehan will meet with parents of students at those schools on Nov. 20 to discuss moving the Japanese dual-language program to one of those campuses.

"I'm very, very happy that we've reached this point," said Councilman Frank Quintero. The multi-purpose field - which is open to residents during non-school hours - is popular among soccer players, for whom city officials have been working to increase and improve facilities throughout Glendale.
