Leading a pack of about 25 third- and fourth-graders, Veronica Bernal, Karen Krueger and Suneet Bawa raced to church after school. The Walnut Elementary School students couldn't wait to get to the United Methodist Church. "We try to get here fast because we want to hear the stories, eat the snack and get help on our homework so we won't have to do it at home," said Veronica, 9. The third-grader said she has improved her grades since she started coming to the church for tutoring last year.

Some 80 students are less likely to become involved with gangs and more likely will return to school this fall as a result of Upward Bound, a new program operated this year by the La Habra City School District. "School attendance went up. GPAs (grade point averages) went way up. Kids started to feel positive about themselves," Imperial Middle School Principal Betty Bidwell said.

For the children of Fifth Avenue, Rose Espinoza's garage is homework headquarters. Two years ago, Espinoza converted her garage into a classroom, complete with chalkboards, desks and book-filled shelves, and began tutoring neighborhood youngsters after school. Many of the students get little help at home with their schoolwork because their parents speak only Spanish and are unable to read their lessons, said Espinoza, who has recently added English classes for parents to her school-in-a-garage.
