Even before the first American soldiers died in Persian Gulf fighting, casualties of the conflict were spreading throughout the San Gabriel Valley: about 20 pupils at Killian Elementary School in Rowland Heights, about 50 at La Seda Elementary in La Puente and more than 60 at Ralph Waldo Emerson Junior High in Pomona. For these children, war left the realm of GI Joe, plastic guns and Tonka toys to become aunt and uncle, brother and friend, mom and dad.

Like the other Marine reservists in his platoon, Chief Warrant Officer Kevin Bera was exhausted last May as he moved north through the Iraqi desert. Temperatures pushed above 110 degrees each day, desert sand blew relentlessly, he was in the middle of a war and he missed his life back home. Then the letters arrived. Bera received an envelope addressed to him from Andrew Andrade, a Garden Grove fifth-grader.

In the second hit-and-run accident within a week in the San Fernando Valley, a 9-year-old boy was in fair condition after a woman driving a BMW struck him Tuesday morning in a crosswalk at Hazeltine Avenue and Magnolia Boulevard. The boy was on his way to school at 8:05 a.m. when what Los Angeles police described as a silver, 1990s-model BMW with silver spoke wheels struck him, lifting him onto the hood and the windshield, cracking it.

Five families from across the San Fernando Valley set up camp for three nights by the front door of Wilbur Avenue Elementary School in 2009, intent on getting a spot for their children in one of the best-regarded schools in Los Angeles. Others hired someone to hold their place in line. This spring, the school in affluent Tarzana began using a lottery for applicants from outside the neighborhood. Within hours, more than a dozen children were on the list. What these determined families could not have known is that Wilbur's record was among the worst in Los Angeles for boosting student performance in math and English.

If President Clinton needs some suggestions for his plan for a national service corps, he could turn to first-grader Matthew Pereyra. Except that Matthew is currently occupied, yelling "Yech!" as he carries a handful of graham cracker crumbs from a lunchroom table to the garbage. Or he could interrupt a hockey game between Jacob Zentner and Jonny Ordonez, two of Matthew's classmates at Oak Hills Elementary School in Oak Park.

Eleven Swain Elementary School students sat down in teacher Sean Kennedy's fourth-grade classroom Tuesday at 3:30 p.m. to do math problems. But school had been out since 2:30 p.m. Two days a week for an hour, these 11 students and 60 others participate in an after-school tutorial program for students considered at risk or candidates for retention. The after-school tutorial is the Cypress School District's answer to legislation signed last fall by former Gov.

It struck 8-year-old Shelby Cottey as she practiced writing cursive and capital Gs for an assignment Wednesday at La Ballona Elementary School in Culver City. "The words started to get all mixed up and I felt dizzy," she said. "My head started to hurt." Shelby was the last in her family to catch a late-season flu bug. Her 1-year-old sister was the first, and within days both parents and all five children in the family were coughing and struggling with upset stomachs.

This little Northern California farm town is blissfully unaccustomed to turmoil. But recent weeks dished up a hopper of dissent. It started with a girl who went home from junior high saying she felt like an orange. Lauren Tatro, 13, told her parents the plain facts. Every student at Brittan Elementary School had to wear a badge the size of an index card with their name, grade, photo -- and a tiny radio identification tag. The purpose was to test a new high-tech attendance system.

To 9-year-old Noemi Rodriquez, Disneyland wasn't such a small world after all. Barely 4 feet tall, the elementary school student from Janitzio, Mexico, remembered staring up at the 147-foot-high Matterhorn on a recent sunny afternoon. When she dropped her gaze to look for her teachers and classmates, they had vanished into a sea of Magic Kingdom visitors. She was lost.
