Despite concerns from neighbors about noise and traffic, the City Council has given the go-ahead for Rosary High School to build a gymnasium on the east side of the school. Although the city Planning Commission approved the 14,000-square-foot gym and multipurpose building in September, about a dozen people who live near the school on North Acacia Avenue held up the project through appeals to the City Council.

It was supposed to be the grand finale of the Red and Gold show, a decades-long tradition for the students of Rosary High School, an all-girls Catholic school in Fullerton. Instead, the raucous and creative performance showcasing school spirit ended in a blur when the stage collapsed Saturday night, sending two dozen students to the hospital with minor and moderate injuries. Investigators are now reviewing building permits to determine what restrictions applied to the stage. The performance took place at Servite High School, an all-boys Catholic school in Anaheim.

As a 1977 graduate of Rosary High School in Fullerton, I object to your statement in the Orange County section that Cornelia High School (commonly known as Connelly) is Orange County's only all-girls Catholic preparatory high school. It is one of the two in Orange County. Rosary is the other. SUSAN L. PETERS Anaheim

Rosary High School plans a ground-breaking ceremony at 1:30 p.m. Sunday for a $1.5-million gymnasium and multipurpose room on the east side of its school grounds. The gymnasium will allow the Catholic girls school to move basketball and other sports indoors and provide space for all of the school's 546 students to attend assemblies and rallies at once. Previously, the school had to hold two assemblies for every event because its largest building couldn't hold all the students.

"The water was everywhere, and I thought the boat was going to tip over. Everyone was frantic, and that made it so much worse," said Rosary High School junior Diane Spillan, describing what happened after a huge wave knocked out a large window of a Catalina Cruise ship on April 24. She and about 30 other students from the Fullerton school were returning on the vessel to Long Beach after their annual three-day trip to Catalina Island Marine Institute.

Authorities were trying to determine whether excessive weight was to blame for the collapse of a stage during a performance at Servite High School in Anaheim on Saturday night, injuring about two dozen students. About 250 girls from Rosary High School, Servite's sister Catholic school, were on the stage when it collapsed, Anaheim Police Department spokesman Lt. Tim Schmidt told The Times. "Early investigations suggest the front of the stage gave out due to weight," Schmidt said.

An enthusiastic high five awaited a smiling Leah Levi as she crossed the 50-yard dash finish line Friday. Leah, 7, was among 840 developmentally disabled students from throughout Orange County who participated in the ninth annual Kathleen E. Faley Memorial Special Games at Cal State Fullerton. The games--where everyone is a winner--are named in honor of Kathleen Faley, who died in a car accident eight years ago.

Rich Schaaf, Santa Margarita's girls' basketball coach, is Barnett's uncle and has been living off and on with his sister Patty's family in their 6,000-square foot ranch house the last 23 years.

It's fashionable to say our children have lost their ethical compass. But why should we adults expect them to have a fixed compass when our own needles fluctuate so wildly? That thought occurs in the aftermath of Sunday's column about Morgan Dawirs, a 16-year-old Rosary High School honors student who was expelled for typing up and e-mailing "rumors" about the faculty from her home computer. Some readers thought her forced removal was far too harsh for her offense.

When Rosary's Christy Ledford steps into the circle today at Lakewood Mayfair Park, she can look over either shoulder and see a teammate she has played with the past four years. She doesn't have to watch third baseman Erin Connors, shortstop Michele McCarthy, second baseman Jaime Fruth or right fielder Theresa Cronin to know what each can do. Ledford takes it for granted grounders will be fielded cleanly and popups caught. After all, she has a 15-5 record, a 0.

In only two years, Rosary's Julia Wald has gone from novice to a standout in water polo. Wald, a 5-foot-4 senior, has helped the Royals defeat two No. 1-ranked teams in Orange County this season. That was good enough for Rosary (6-1) to be No. 3 in the county. "Nobody heard of Rosary before," Royals' Coach Todd Sprague said. "We've just been blessed with good athletes here." Wald is one of the best.

Rosary High School is a two-story rectangle of cinder block and glass that sits in the middle of a Fullerton residential development and appears very much at one with its surroundings. That is to say, Rosary looks more like an apartment building than a high school. It is a relatively small school, about 570 girls, which makes it easy to know everyone's name and nearly impossible to keep a secret. "It's cozy," said Stephanie Scofield, Rosary's star volleyball player.

The future is always just around the corner, but a leap in centuries is in store for this year's high school graduates: Many of those heading off to college will be members of another graduating class, the Class of 2000. As they prepare to move on--to college, into the workplace or military service, away from home--the members of the Class of '96 will take their high school experiences into the next century. Their interests are as varied as their accomplishments.
