Most young Muslim students feel accepted on California junior high and high school campuses, although a significant number say they face bias from teachers and bullying from fellow students, according to a new report by a leading Islamic advocacy group. The report, issued Thursday and based on an extensive survey by the California chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, offers a nuanced portrayal of the climate young Muslims face in California schools. Of the nearly 500 Muslim youth surveyed across the state, about 80% gave a positive rating to their overall educational experience - noting that they were comfortable speaking about their religion in the classroom and felt safe in school and respected by teachers.

The Northwood TimberWolves. That's the mascot selected by a vote of eighth- and ninth-graders who are planning to attend Northwood High School in Irvine when it opens next September. They also selected the new school's colors: navy blue, silver and white. Students in the Northwood attendance area originally suggested 88 different mascots and 90 color combinations. A committee of more than 100 eighth- and ninth-graders narrowed the choice to 10 mascots and 10 sets of colors.

Matt Harper's bedroom is a perfect mess. His desk is blanketed with papers, but don't expect the La Canada Flintridge 16-year-old to organize it. That would ruin his system. A pile of posters, banners and flags litters a spare bed, which he calls the "loading dock," but they're not junk. He just hasn't had time to stick them to the ceiling. A heap of old cellphones grows in one corner, accumulated for a school fundraiser.

When Northwood High School opens in Irvine next fall, both Principal Tony Ferruzzo and Athletic Director Rick Curtis hope to have few worries about walk-on coaches. Ideally, they would like to have a faculty member coaching every varsity sport. "It's as much about continuity as anything else," said Curtis, currently athletic director at Irvine High, where all but four varsity head coaches are on staff. "There's a year-round program.

As students in tank tops streamed past legions of construction workers in hard hats to register for classes Wednesday at Irvine's brand-new Northwood High School, the cheerleading squad was practicing drills on the school's front plaza as if it had been together all summer.

Northwood High School opens its doors for the first time Thursday, and already there's talk about where to hang the championship banner. That's because the girls' cross-country team, one of only two varsity sports Northwood definitely will field this season, is expected to benefit from the arrival of Coach Randy Rossi and three key runners from Irvine High's 1998 state championship team.

Two Irvine Unified School District trustees have decided not to seek reelection. Trustee Michael B. Regele had decided months ago not to run, and board President Jeanne Flint announced Friday she would not seek a second term after discussing the matter with her family. Regele, a trustee for about 11 years, said he thought it was time for the board to have new faces. Karen Preston, the third board member up for reelection, will seek a second term in the Nov. 7 election.
