Darleene Barrientos Incarnation Parish Catholic School students ran wildly in circles Friday, but this time their teachers encouraged it because they were raising money with the 20th annual jog-a-thon. This year's jog-a-thon was particularly special, because it was dedicated to a schoolmate who was killed this year in a car crash. "This year is very special because it's dedicated to Gina Fenton. The T-shirts we're wearing are printed with one of the last pictures Gina drew," Principal Anne Regan-Smith said.

Ian, 13, never got a chance to get to know the 8-year-old before she died last year from injuries she sustained in a car crash. But when he begins classes at Notre Dame High School this fall, Ian will remember Gina because of the $500 scholarship he received in her memory. "I'm glad I got the scholarship," Ian said.

LA CRESCENTA — The green tarps are on the move again at Crescenta Valley High School as crews prepare to make what are expected to be up to $8 million in repairs to four campus buildings. Repairs to Building 7000 have been completed, allowing crews to begin work on Building 1000. Shoddy construction to the buildings and two others, Buildings 5000 and 6000, during a $41-million remodeling project in 2002 have required millions of dollars’ worth of ongoing repairs.

Darleene Barrientos This weekend's fire and vandalism at Dunsmore Elementary School will probably be cleaned up in time for the first day of classes in September, officials said Monday. Glendale Unified School District officials plan to begin repairs immediately. Michael Ryan Morales, 18, of La Crescenta, was arrested Sunday on suspicion of breaking into the school and causing about $300,000 worth of damage, including allegedly setting the school's auditorium stage on fire with a stack of textbooks or binders, authorities said.

The green tarps that are at present covering the 5000 building on the Crescenta Valley High School campus will be switched to the 7000 building over the winter break as workers continue their work on construction defects. The move will signify the completion of the first of four buildings slated for repairs due to poor construction during a $41 million remodeling project completed in 2002. The problems with buildings 1000, 5000, 6000 and 7000 began about two years after completion when heavy rains exposed several leaks.

FACILITY PROJECTS The Glendale Unified School District Board of Education heard a report on the progress of its school construction projects. Some of the projects had been in doubt because the state froze grants to pay for them as a result of California?s cash shortage. The continuation of an ongoing development at Columbus Elementary School was previously uncertain, but officials have begun renovating an old building at the site, using money from the district?s construction funds instead of the state grants, said John Fenton, the district?

NORTH GLENDALE — Renovations at Hoover High School that were delayed by almost a month were caused by structural flaws that forced officials to change plans for connecting two quads, said John Fenton, the Glendale Unified School District’s administrator of planning, development and facilities. Officials don’t know the added cost of the 25-day delay last fall that resulted in a new approach to the centerpiece of the $17-million Hoover renovation, but it will be significant, Fenton said.
