KATHERINE YAMADA One of the most popular field trips for Glendale students in the 1950s and '60s was to Jessup Farms at San Fernando Road and Doran Street. The students toured the dairy, had a picnic on the grass and, if they were lucky, saw a calf being born. "Kids came in school buses from all over," said Rich Jessup, grandson of Roger Jessup, the dairy's founder. They walked through the milking barn, saw the calves (their favorite part) and watched the milk-bottling process through a window.

Fourth-graders from Carol Young's class went on a tasteful field trip last Thursday to Los Gingos Rapido on the corner of Pennsylvania Avenue and Foothill Boulevard. Divided into three sections, the students got to take a tour of the kitchen and make their own tortilla, design their own dream Mexican dish and learn the proper method for washing hands before handling food. The third group learned how to wash their hands. It may seem like fourth graders should already know how to wash their hands, but Kim Chatham, director of operations for the Los Gringos Rapido company, teaches students the birthday method.

Robert Chacon After deciding to place two funding measures on the March ballot, La Canada Unified School District officials are worried that paying for those, as well as students' distant field trips, might be too much of a financial burden for parents. So the school board is considering cutting back on student trips to destinations such as New York City, Paris, Eastern Europe and an Amazon rainforest. The board has signed off on these trips in the past, but members were concerned this week that trips across the globe might be too excessive in tough budget times like these, even though students and their families pay for the trips through fund-raisers.

LA CRESCENTA — The Bridge Program that began last year at Crescenta Valley High School will most likely continue this fall, but with slightly less funding and personnel. The goal of the program is to help ninth- and 10th-grade boys who may have had a difficult transition from Rosemont Middle School, said Crescenta Valley Sheriff Deputy Scott Shinagawa. “It is really a program for kids who felt disconnected from school,” Shinagawa said. “They don’t join any clubs or sports and they can get lost in the system.

CENTRAL GLENDALE — Salvation Army Glendale, which has had to grapple with a precipitous increase in demand for services over the past two years, got some support of its own Wednesday after a group of community leaders donated thousands of food items and about $7,000. Since 2007, Salvation Army Glendale has seen a 200% increase in the number of people seeking help, Capt. Rio Ray said. At the same time, donations to the center have slumped with the battered economy, creating a crunch for resources, he added.

Local children are honing their acting, singing and script-writing skills this week and next as they develop a musical show about cats that includes familiar feline characters such as Garfield, the AristoCats and the record-setting musical “Cats.” The young thespians are participating in a summer theater camp that’s being offered by the city of Glendale for the first time this year. The city’s Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department decided to launch the theater camp because residents had indicated their interest in an acting-oriented summer activity for children, said Patty Betancourt, a community services specialist with the city.
