Every Monday artist Jane McKinney lugs her supplies to a classroom at Ventura's Anacapa Middle School. This week it's bags of plaster of Paris so the students can mold stands for the sculptures they made last week. Miles away at Oxnard's Ocean View Junior High School, percussionist Robert "Sartuse" Hoard unloads his instruments and kids crowd around to help carry them into the school.

The most important commandment: "Thou shalt not lie. Your mother and God will find out the truth anyways." The overriding message of the Old Testament: "Don't be a bad boy or girl. You should listen to God or you might end up in a whale." And when God asked Cain what happened to Abel, Cain's reply: "I want to see my lawyer before I answer any more questions, God."

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.

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.

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.

Learn Civil War history by performing a play? Study fractions through exploration of musical scores? After five years of brutal cuts in arts education, Los Angeles Unified is gearing up to bring more music, dance, theater and visual arts into core academic classes under a three-year, $750,000 initiative to be announced Thursday by the Los Angeles nonprofit group funding the effort. The Los Angeles Fund for Public Education plans to announce the first grant of $150,000 to the Music Center, which will train 20 teachers how to integrate the arts into classrooms at five L.A. middle schools: Sun Valley, San Fernando, Adams, Berendo and South Gate.
