A finish at NASCAR couldn’t have been sweeter for the about 35 tricyclists who took to the track last Thursday morning for the 28th annual Lincoln 500 at Lincoln Elementary School Raceway. The race was postponed a week earlier due to rain, but took place last week with nearly all the pomp and circumstance of a national motor speedway event. “It’s unbelievable how everything is changing on the track,” said race announcer and Lincoln Elementary School Principal Bill Card, as blue, green, red, orange, purple, black and yellow shirted cyclists quickly pedaled past the grand stand.

SPARR HEIGHTS — A group of Glendale mothers is bringing tea parties back into style — but reuse the tea bag, please. That would be an apt mantra for the Green Team of Glendale, which was co-founded in May by five women who take turns hosting “green” tea parties in hopes of starting eco-minded conversations in local households, group co-founder Cathy Schechter said. In preparing to launch their group, Schechter and fellow Green Team co-founders participated in an eco-training program put on by Empowerment Institute, a New York-based training consultant.

From quirky to cute, employees at Yahoo! Search Marketing in Burbank brought more than 50 ceramic mugs from home and donated them to the company’s “Mugstock” project. The idea came from the company’s Green Team, employees who meet once a month to plan ways to protect the environment in the workplace. There were different shapes, sizes and colors donated to the effort. One mug had the words El Salvador, Central America with two houses each topped with a terracotta roof.

Fall colors abound, but green dominates at Glenoaks Elementary, where Principal Kristine Siegal will spray paint her hair green if 100% participation in PTA membership is reached by Oct. 15. PTA President Jennifer Palacios said the principal hair-painting began several years ago, and students love it. "Luckily, principals have been good sports," she added. Glenoaks' PTA is holding an eco-friendly drive. Since the school's Green Team educates students and staff about environmental responsibility, Chair Leigh Helberg said students would sell $10 squares on recyclable paper similar to bingo cards instead of gift wrap.

The crowd at Lincoln Elementary School was on its feet on Friday as the racers of the 27th Annual Lincoln 500 entered their last lap. Team Purple lost its lead to teams Black and Yellow. Black held the lead, then Yellow, then Black again. A photo finish revealed that team Black was, in fact, this year's winner. The crowd applauded and cheered — for all the racers. The Lincoln 500 is like most other races, the only differences being that the racers are elementary school students and they are riding tricycles, not driving race cars.

GLENDALE — Lucy Muñoz and her 5-year-old son, Logan Cantu, dug a deep hole in a dirt pile for a young tree Saturday that was planted along with 14 other trees at Franklin Elementary School. She adopted the tree and will assume the responsibility of watering it every week at the school. “This is really important for the children so they learn how to take care of their environment and how to take care of the trees,” Muñoz said. The school’s Green Team and the nonprofit organization Tree People organized the tree planting at the school in an effort to bring more shade to the mostly concrete campus.

The color green has always had a place at Verdugo Woodlands Elementary School — the school’s colors are green and gold — but green has taken on a new meaning on campus this spring, with the launch of several environmentally friendly projects. Parents at the school established a “Go Green Team” earlier this year, and under the leadership of parent Karen Miller, the group has planted a vegetable garden at the school and is collecting used sneakers to be turned into rubberized playground surfaces, among other projects.
