John Muir Middle School's auditorium holds some special memories for me. When I was 4, my older sister had sewn matching dresses for us in her clothing class, and we modeled them in a fashion show on the auditorium stage. Years later, when I attended Muir, Allan Burnside was the principal. Not your grim or stoic school administrator; Burnside was cool. He was approachable. He would start up a conversation with the students passing in the halls and had a jovial manner. He also drove a wood-paneled station wagon, circa 1940, known as a Woodie.

Parents, administrators and teachers at Roosevelt Elementary have rolled up their sleeves in preparation for a serious year of fundraising. The school's booster club met earlier this month for a launch party at the DeBell Clubhouse Grill. About 50 people indulged in hors d'oeuvres while chatting and bidding on silent auction items. The boosters have set a lofty goal to modernize Roosevelt's auditorium. Linda Walmsley, teacher liaison, said the “300 for 300” project offers the public a chance to donate $300 that will go to renovate the 300-seat auditorium, which has not been updated since the school was built in the early 1920s.

BURBANK — School district board members will consider approving a $230,000 project Thursday night to replace or repair aging auditorium rigging throughout the district, which officials say could pose a safety hazard. The report recommends that Burbank Unified board members approve the project and contract between the district and T & S Rigging, a professional auditorium rigging consultant. The report comes after months of review by T & S Rigging workers on the status of rigging inside every auditorium at district campuses.

SOUTH SAN FERNANDO DISTRICT — As summer heat closes in on Southern California, the staff of William McKinley Elementary School is hoping for a cool reprieve, courtesy of a new air conditioning system in their auditorium. But the odds — and the finances — are against it. Despite modernization efforts at McKinley extending to their auditorium in the form of some major refurbishments, air conditioning is not one of them. "Air conditioning is a dream," Principal Sue Holliday said.

Rosette Gonzales Fifth-graders from Theodore Roosevelt Elementary School not only say the darnedest things, they make poetry out of them. For the past two months these students have studied poetry, its structure, intonation, authors and more. They presented their original poems Wednesday onstage in an open-house poetry reading in the school's auditorium. "Sleeping in the night," said Alexandra Rivero, 11, beginning a haiku she wrote. "Staring at the stars above ... waiting for the day."

Mark R. Madler In the auditorium at Theodore Roosevelt Elementary School, the blue curtain on the stage is decorated with poster boards wishing Principal Irene Stambolos good luck as she moves on to a new job. At the PTA's farewell party for her Friday, Stambolos was talking to a parent when a student handed her a potted flower. "How can you not love kids like this?" Stambolos asked, holding the plant in one hand as the young girl walked away. From the looks of it Friday, Stambolos was leaving on amicable terms.

BURBANK — Administrators at John Muir Middle School jumped ahead of a few other schools this month by cementing plans to install new auditorium curtains by the end of November. Burbank Unified School District board members approved a list of purchase orders at their Oct. 18 meeting that included more than $15,000 for rigging, installation and materials for new stage drapes at Muir. The funds for the project are being taken out of the school’s share in a one-time grant from the state for physical education, art and music, per the wishes of its council and leadership teams, while other schools in the district that also need new drapes are waiting for district administrators and officials to research costs and find funding methods.
