HIGHLAND HIGH TEACHERS TO SHOWCASE TALENTS.

Byline: JOANNE PEPIAK Education Columnist

PALMDALE - The Highland High School Vocalizers are sponsoring a teacher talent show fund-raiser Friday at 7 p.m. in the campus theater, 39055 25th St. W.

Discount tickets can be purchased in advance: $3 for adults and $2 for students with Associated Student Body cards, children under 12 and seniors, Vocalizer publicist Josh Mills said. Advance tickets are available until Thursday at 2:20 p.m. in the Highland student store, he said.

Tickets purchased at the door will run $5 for adults and $3 for ASB card holders, children under 12 and seniors.

The vocal club of about 25 students, with the help of music and drama coach Joe Montgomery, has scheduled several Highland teachers and a few other school employees to perform comic routines, dances and solo and group musical numbers, Mills said.

About six Vocalizer officers will act as judges for the event, Mills said.

The organization sponsored a student talent show in October, where Highland teachers judged the students, so Vocalizer judges are prepared to "turn the tables" on faculty members, he said.

Proceeds from the event will go toward completing payments on new custom-made uniforms for the group valued at about $3,000, Mills said.

The group has held a series of fund-raisers during the year to cover costs of the red and white sequined-chiffon outfits, he said.

For additional ticket information, call Highland at 538-0304 and ask for the student store, Montgomery, Mills or Shelly McPeek. boxes

LANCASTER - Piute Intermediate School received a friendly visit from a California Highway Patrol officer Dec. 8 to commend students for participating in the CHP-sponsored holiday toy drive.

As a "thank-you" to pupils for collecting about 100 gifts for area hospitalized teens, CHP Officer Miguel Siordia brought four bicycle helmets and four music store gift certificates for which students had to compete, teacher Sue Thornton said.

Siordia, after praising toy-drive participants for a job well done, helped school faculty engage students in a series of elimination games similar to musical chairs to determine winners of the prizes, she said.

Although the focus of the CHP drive was to collect toys and other gifts for all ages, three Piute service organizations in charge of the school drive decided to direct efforts toward helping bedridden youngsters, many of them terminally ill, Thornton said.

Piute groups in charge of gift collection were the California Junior Scholarship Federation, peer assistant leaders and students involved in leadership and campus government, Thornton said.

Items such as board games, books, playing cards and stuffed animals were collected and delivered to the teens by the CHP before Christmas, she said. boxes

LANCASTER - School board trustees from throughout the Antelope Valley were part of a group of 2,500 educators taking part in an annual academic conference in December at the Long Beach Convention Center.

Local participants attending the California School Boards Association Educational Conference were trustees Velma Trosin from the Palmdale School District; Wilda Andrejick, Antelope Valley Union High School District; Melinda Bukey, Lancaster School District; Michael Dutton, Keppel Union School District; and Gwen Farrell, representing Westside Union School District, Farrell said.

"The conference is the largest educational opportunity for school board members and superintendents through the states," Farrell said.

About 90 different topics, such as censorship and other timely issues, were discussed at the four-day seminar, she said.

The California School Boards Association is a nonprofit association representing more than 5,000 elected board members from about 1,000 districts and county offices of education throughout the state, Farrell said.
