Among the 200 cultural samplings students brought to Vintage Street Magnet School on Friday, a large blue and yellow, candy-filled cone called a schultute was the favorite. The cones are traditionally given to first-grade students on their first day of school in Germany. Among the other items were Danish pancakes with raspberry sauce, Matrushka dolls--tiny and colorful--from Russia and a multicolored model jeepney bus from the Philippines.

With shovels of mulch and soil, students replaced a jacaranda destroyed June 28, along with six other trees and other property when at least eight students climbed a fence and, in the words of Principal Gregory J. Vallone, "really did a number on us."

A San Fernando High School graduate who has returned to her home turf to teach will be presented the Dr. Max Klingbeil Award for Outstanding Student Teaching at Cal State Northridge today. Carrie Castro Armour, 33, is a rarity in the CSUN education program: She is one of only two Hispanic student teachers out of 35 in the social studies program, and she works in an area where many schools are 50% to 60% Hispanic.
