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."

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.

Ongoing construction at Providence High School may cause parking havoc when classes begin Tuesday for the school's 550 students.

Burns Student Activity Center is scheduled to be completed in October, said Tina Howard, Providence associate director of development.
