"I'm nervous about tripping," 18-year-old Rondin said. "But I'm excited. I never imagined this day -- I never thought this day would come. I will miss Providence so much because it was such a huge part of my life."

Gary Moskowitz MAGNOLIA PARK -- For spring break, some Providence High School students will spend a week learning a lesson in humanity outside the classroom. Sylvia Correa, 18, the school's Habitat for Humanity club president, said that the most important thing about the house-building project is that people without a home will finally have a place to call their own. "Sometimes we don't appreciate what we have," said Correa, who founded the club one year ago. "Everyone should have a place they call home."

BURBANK ? To conclude the celebration of its 50th anniversary in Burbank, the faculty and staff at Providence High School delivered its 50th box of donated food to the Burbank Temporary Aid Center last week. The effort was a part of Providence's modern-day "jubilee," which is a biblical event in which farmers would not harvest a portion of their crop, instead making it available for the poor, said Allison Knowles, alumni and media-relations representative for Providence. The faculty and staff brought nonperishable foods and canned goods throughout the school year, delivering what was collected to the aid center box by box. "We decided our anniversary celebration is not just all about us," Knowles said.

BURBANK -- The Sisters of Providence started a good habit in the west about 150 years ago. Mother Emilie Gamelin founded Sisters of Providence in Montreal in 1843 and sent Mother Joseph of the Sacred Heart -- whose birth name was Esther Pariseau -- to Spokane, Wash., in 1856 to start a western outreach. Since Dec. 8, 1856, the Sisters of Providence have been busy opening churches, health care facilities, schools and other public-services. It was just a matter of time before they got to Burbank.

Exceptionally well written Summer Grindle of La Crescenta is a junior at Los Angeles County High School for the Arts. Following the recent Disney trend of "The Prince of Egypt" and "Hercules," the main characters in the "The Emperor's New Groove" are either lanky and long-haired, or shaped like football players with baseball-sized heads. Aside from aesthetic nit-picking, the film is exceptionally well written, pleasing both its young target audience and their older moviegoing companions.

Irma Lemus BURBANK -- Students returning from summer to Burbank's two private high schools for the 2000-2001 school year are finding changes in store. Ongoing construction at Providence High School may cause parking havoc when classes begin Tuesday for the school's 550 students. During the summer, the school's main entrance was reconfigured and a faculty parking lot was removed to make room for a new activity center. The $3.9 million Fritz B. Burns Student Activity Center is scheduled to be completed in October, said Tina Howard, Providence associate director of development.

"I admire my father so much," said Correa, 18, who will attend Stanford University in the fall. "My graduation from high school is an accomplishment for me, my father and my whole family."
