Amid the dry desert hills, scrubby cactuses and new housing tracts along Santa Margarita Parkway, a new school has sprouted without a single permanent building. "It's just like moving into an apartment before you get your new house--the kids are excited," said Larry Callison, principal of Cielo Vista Elementary, which set up shop this fall in 19 portable buildings on the campus of Trabuco Mesa Elementary.

The Arroyo Vista Parent Teacher Assn. raised $68,742 for school-enrichment projects during the 1999-2000 school year. The fall sale of holiday gift wrap earned $30,000 for the elementary school. Other fund-raisers included the spring carnival and silent auction, which earned $19,000; entertainment book sales, which brought in $6,000; a membership drive that earned $6,000, as well as book fairs, a millennium tile wall, a holiday gift shop and "spirit wear" sales.

The 625 pupils of Cielo Vista Elementary School marked the opening of the permanent campus Monday by making a 1-mile march there from the school's temporary quarters on the Trabuco Elementary School playground. As the children approached the new campus, the school bell was rung in its tower to mark their arrival. The new campus is on a 10-acre site at 22811 Avenida de los Fundadores. It is Spanish-style, with 22 classrooms and a combined library and computer laboratory.

Miss Gizzi gets that look on her face and says be quiet, everyone please be quiet, but how can you be quiet when there's just one day left, one tiny day, a few fidgety hours before the magic and freedom and endless twirling days of summer? Summer. The word is like the sweetest candy in your mouth.

Saddleback Valley Unified School District trustees have given final approval to site plans and opened bids for construction of a fourth intermediate school. Construction of the $13.5-million Rancho Santa Margarita school is expected to begin early next year, after the bidding is completed this winter. The school is one of seven the district plans to build in the next five years. Expected to open by the fall of 1994, the planned 106,000-square-foot campus will accommodate 1,200 students.

The name will remain the same for Rancho Santa Margarita Intermediate School when it opens this fall. In a unanimous vote last week, the Saddleback Valley Unified School District Board of Education approved keeping the name the school has had during its construction. The name was the overwhelming choice of students who will attend the school starting in September, Principal Walt Otto said.

St. John's School, at 30382 Via con Dios, dedicated its first permanent building Tuesday, a $1.2-million structure built entirely from donations. The private, Episcopalian elementary school has housed 550 students in portable buildings since 1988. But during the past year, officials from the Episcopal Diocese, the Rancho Santa Margarita Co. and the Hunsaker Development Co. raised the money to build rooms for preschool, kindergarten and administration offices at the school.

With cranes in tow, three tractor-trailer rigs rolled onto the Cielo Vista Elementary School campus Tuesday bearing a gift of shade: a dozen large coral trees moved for freeway construction. As students watched excitedly from a safe distance, crews spent the day unloading the mature trees into holes dug around the school's baseball, soccer and softball fields. "I'm happy the school will have shade, because it gets hot here," said sixth-grader Sammy Forrest, 11. "It will look nicer here too."
