A Hollywood student returned to campus this week after finishing fourth in the National High School Chess Championships held in Knoxville, Tenn., in which 1,000 players competed. Harutyan Akopyan, a senior at Arshag Dickranian High School, said he was "proud, but a little disappointed" in his final match Sunday when he lost to Marcel Martinez of Miami. Akopyan began playing the game at age 5 in his native Armenia, which has produced many chess grand masters.

What motivated 12-year-old Marquis Jefferson to plow through 10 books in the reading club over the last two months? A trip to Disneyland. Why is 10-year-old Briana Diaz choosing reading books over hip-hop dance and painting? A $10 gift certificate for more books. Field trips and prizes are just a few of the incentives that instructors at the Los Angeles Center for Education Research's Stars Afterschool Program dangle in front of the 750 students to encourage them to increase their reading.

Hollywood's Vine Street School unveiled a renovated and expanded library Thursday that includes $10,000 in books, reading and study areas, and a newly designed interior. More than 150 guests crowded into the elementary school's library to view the improvements that were made possible by school fund-raising and a grant from The Wonder of Reading, a nonprofit organization that supports school libraries. "It is wonderful," said Vice Principal Marianna Roberts.

It isn't as if the youngsters in the Hollywood High School marching band--all 19 of them--have to be told that they aren't exactly the best band in the world. Mostly immigrant students from Latin America, Soviet Armenia and elsewhere, some haven't been in this country long enough to master English, much less get accustomed to marching and playing "Yankee Doodle" at the same time. But they do "get straight A's for determination," said band director Joe Montgomery.
