So, last Saturday I'm going through the newspaper wondering what movie to catch, when I come upon the story about Burroughs High School students performing “Sweeney Todd.” A high school production of “Sweeney Todd”? This I have to see. Since my children graduated from Burroughs, I was familiar with the school's ambitious pop shows, but even so this production was extraordinary. To see kids tackle a property as complicated and adult as “Sweeney Todd” and do so well by it is a thrill.

A female student from Burroughs High School was on the bus that collided with a FedEx freight truck in a fiery crash in Northern California on Thursday evening, killing 10 people and injuring dozens more. Los Angeles Unified officials said Friday that 19 of its students were aboard the bus that collided with the truck. The Burbank student, whose name was not immediately released, was transported to a hospital, “but she will be fine,” said Burbank Unified Supt. Jan Britz. “She's fine physically, but it's a strong emotional trauma to the family to live through,” Britz said, adding that the school district will provide the student's family with mental and emotional support, if needed.

Out of 75,000 eligible educators, Burroughs High School teacher Jill Tobin stands among 16 chosen as Los Angeles County Teachers of the Year. “It's totally humbling,” she said. “I feel like I don't deserve this any more than anybody else at this school or at this district.” In her ninth year of teaching science at Burroughs, Tobin aspires to help students apply the subject to their own lives. In one infamous lesson, students learned how phytoplankton require nitrogen made available from whale waste in order to fulfill their role as the basis of the ocean's food chain, which is a necessary element to the planet's well-being.

It was impossible to tell which was shining more brightly at the Burroughs High School commencement ceremony on Thursday - the faces of the graduates or the newly renovated Memorial Field. “It feels awesome,” said Michael Lima as he lined up with his classmates to accept his diploma. “It feels like I have accomplished something. I worked hard for 13 years and this is where I stand today.” The Burroughs High School class of 2012, more than 600 students strong, was the first to celebrate graduation at the recently remodeled Memorial Field, and not without a bit of a fight.

I have a teenage daughter who is an athlete at Burroughs High School. When I informed her that there would now be no punishment for the ball players who didn’t drink (“Suspensions lifted for 7 baseball players,” May 7), but who refused to tell on those who did, her exact quote was, “Good. I don’t think you should have to tell. It’s not my business if somebody does something wrong.” What a bizarre message for the administration to send to the other kids involved in activities at the school.
