Michael Miller The California Nutrition Network's A to Z Salad Bar at TeWinkle Middle School didn't quite cover the entire alphabet -- there aren't any known fruits or vegetables that start with U or X, and the organizers decided to pass on Q. "Q was probably quince, but those are little crab apples," said Sharon Moore, grant project nutritionist for the Newport-Mesa Unified School District. "They're not very edible and not in season." Regardless, the salad bar, which extended across the multipurpose room at TeWinkle on Thursday, featured as full a display of produce as middle school students are likely to see. Among the more obscure offerings on the menu were romaine lettuce, garbanzo beans, endive and daikon -- a root vegetable that often graces Japanese cooking.

Tomatoes, zucchini, cauliflower and grapes were just a few of the organic plants that students at Abraham Lincoln Elementary School placed into the soil of the campus’ new organic garden Friday. The garden was the fifth designed and donated by Savannah’s Organic Ranch, a nonprofit that strives to educate children about the importance of growing and eating organic food. Savannah’s Organic Ranch was created in memory and celebration of the life of Savannah Sachen, an elementary school student from Aliso Viejo who died of heart cancer in May 2007.

On the Sage Hill School volleyball court is where Kent Kawaguchi feels at his best. It makes sense why he invited the entire student body sitting on the bleachers down to the court on Monday. The junior wasn't in his usual volleyball outfit, shorts and T-shirt. He wore a collared shirt and tie with gray pants to this gathering, nothing too fancy or casual. Students made their way down to listen to what Kawaguchi had to say on this morning. More than 400 students stood around him in a circle.

Jeff Benson Student leaders at Newport Harbor High School are upset over what they call a violation of their right to free speech after a debate about using fireworks Saturday to celebrate homecoming. Students were told last week that they couldn't present a report at a school board meeting detailing why they should be allowed to set off the fireworks. The letter, signed by 32 members of the school Associated Student Body, said the school had already received city permits and an OK from the Fire Department.

Gay Geiser-Sandoval I know I should stay out of the fray between separation of church and state. It produces two kinds of responses. One is the intellectual and abstract understanding of what it is and why it is necessary. The second response is that advocating for separation is an affront to that person's specific religious beliefs and their right to free speech. Since the school board hasn't met for some time, I will jump into the fray. The Daily Pilot recently ran an article about one of the student body presidents of a local high school.

After retiring from his administrative position as vice chancellor for student affairs at UC Irvine in 2004, Jim Craig returns to campus once each year for a very specific purpose. Joined by about 50 students and staff members Wednesday, Craig participated in the annual Martin Luther King Jr. march and rally for the 23rd time. The demonstration was held to honor the civil rights leader's message and spirit. "I come to remember the actions and principles of Martin Luther King Jr.," Craig said.

Journalists don't much like good news. Give me a juicy scandal any day of the week, and I'm in my element. So it's with a touch of chagrin that I must admit that Newport-Mesa Unified School District's pilot online preregistration project went well. Very well. Darn. Let me at least remind you of last year's registration fiasco at Corona del Mar High School, which was a model of DMV-like inefficiency and delayed plane flight-type frustration. Students and parents appeared ready to storm the administration building after giving up one of their cherished summer days to spend hours in the hot sun wending their way through a labyrinth of long lines and understaffed stations to register for the upcoming school year.

High school is almost over for us seniors. While these past four years have seemed like our entire lives in some ways, as they come to a close it is amazing to realize how quickly they have gone by. It seems like just last Tuesday we were asking kids twice as tall as us how to get to a certain room number, not wanting to be tardy on our first day of class. There have been many ups and downs, but as a class, we have learned a lot. Hopefully, we can impart these tidbits of wisdom upon aspiring young freshmen.

Students walking through the middle of UCI’s campus this week will witness free speech at work. Various groups — pro-Israel, pro-Zionist, pro-Palestinian and others — are inviting speakers and staging rallies to portray their own version of truth, their opinion on the conflict happening within Israel as two cultures continue to clash. And standing at the middle of these protests is a wall, a replica of the one that borders Israel and Palestine. The wall, built by the Muslim Student Union, depicts violence against Palestine, anti-Zionist sentiments and the flag of Israel, blood-stained, soaring above.

A former Newport-Mesa Unified School District employee is free on bail and could face charges of grand theft for allegedly stealing $11,000 worth of cash and checks from Newport Harbor High School's student association, police said Friday. Juan Medinaperalta, 26, of Orange, was arrested Tuesday following a month-long investigation by police into funds that never ended up at the district offices as they were supposed to. In May, school officials handed Medinaperalta a bag with $7,179.

Craig Bluell calls his new gig as Vanguard University swim coach, “a wonderful opportunity,” which is the same mentality for administrative leaders who are banking on two new sports teams for some help, as the school continues to find ways to maintain its accreditation. Athletic Director Bob Wilson, in his 14th year at Vanguard, had his proposal of two new sports teams, men’s and women’s swimming, passed by Vanguard’s Board of Trustees.

COSTA MESA — Michaela Bryant witnessed some formative years at Orange Coast College — the school's, and her own. The Anaheim resident who delivered the student commencement address at OCC's graduation Friday was all of 17 when she took the microphone at the Pacific Amphitheater. Michaela began taking OCC classes as a high school sophomore while being home-schooled by her mother, and during her three years at OCC, she also watched the campus grow around her. "While OCC is building itself into a more modern, high-tech campus, we are constructing our future," she said during her speech.
