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.

Made entirely of clay secured to the frame, the eagle was presented to the school as a gift by the sixth-grade class of 2002. The students spent all year working on the statue, each making one of the clay tiles placed on the base. The tiles are personalized with poetry, messages and drawings written by each of the students.

In the spirit of the Glendale Unified School District-wide program Focus on Writing, the Valley Sun has invited all students to write about any school-related subject, anything from school trips to what they like about their school to what it is like to enter middle and high school. The stories may be edited and pictures are welcomed. Send to Mary.Okeefe@latimes.com.   The trip to Catalina was both invigorating and surreal. I was with my friends, and we were doing activities that were not only awesomely fun but educationally fun, too. We did many things: snorkeling, hiking, kayaking, rock-wall climbing, gardening and composting, and tide-pool investigations.

Elementary students in the Crescenta Valley area, including Dunsmore and Valley View, joined other children across the nation and around the world to celebrate Walk to School Day on Wednesday, Oct. 4. The idea for the day began in England in response to concerns about childhood obesity. Having children walk to school with their parents was a way to call attention to the problem and a healthy way for children to exercise. By 2002, the concept had spread to America with all 50 states participating in Walk To School Day, and an entire week has since been dedicated to bring awareness of the value of exercise for both students and parents.
