Mark R. Madler Burbank Unified School board members have rejected a suggestion from an area lawyer to rename John Burroughs High School after former President Ronald Reagan. Thomas Cotrel, a 1977 Burroughs graduate, suggested the school be renamed after Reagan, who died last month. "He was a significant enough player on the world stage to justify the renaming of the school," Cotrel told school board members Thursday. If the district decided to go ahead with the renaming, private donations could be sought to pay for new signs and stationery, Cotrel said.

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.

John Muir Middle School teacher Stacie Crowther has made dreams come true for hundreds of children while following her own as a volunteer pilot in the National Young Eagles program at Whiteman Airport in Pacoima. Crowther has been taking young people interested in learning more about aeronautics into the wild blue yonder once a month for the past two years as part of the program. She's now cleared to fly commercially but said she really loves donating her time helping youngsters realize their piloting potential.
