First- and second-grade students showed significant growth in mathematics and reading skills between fall and spring semesters last year, according to class-size reduction study released Monday by the Capistrano Unified School District. Third-graders, whose classes were reduced to 20 students per teacher, showed small growth in skills for reading and math compared with their counterparts in classes of 30.

It is 1 p.m. on a warm August Wednesday, and Maria Pierce has set up class in a battered storage shed, wedged between two tractors and a tiny home. Her desk is a rusty card table covered by a plastic tablecloth on a dirt floor, and the lighting is the early afternoon sun. For the next two hours, her 11 pupils will include seven children and four mothers, some cradling sleeping babies in their arms.

Stung by growing violence in their community, a group of volunteers involved with an educational tutoring center is planning a novel inducement to keep children in school: Finish high school and receive a $1,000 scholarship. "It's a program to dangle a $1,000 carrot in front of some of these children, and we think it would work," said Saul Barajas, 35, a project engineer at Unisys Corp.

There were neither ghosts nor ghouls nor goblins on the grounds of Mission San Juan Capistrano on Friday, but that doesn't mean the students of Mission School weren't dressed up in the spirit of Halloween. Instead of celebrating in a more traditional way, the 400 students in kindergarten through eighth grade celebrated a message of worldwide peace and understanding through international costumes, foods, songs and dances.

Lynn Takacs was concerned when she arrived at San Juan Elementary School this month from another school district and found parents of white students angry because their children were sharing classrooms with Latinos. With that introduction to the Capistrano Unified School District, where Latinos make up 70% of the student population, the sixth-grade teacher was one of the first to sign up for training in a classroom-based race relations program.

Responding to the nearly fatal beating of a 55-year-old man in Laguna Beach, Capistrano Unified School District Supt. James A. Fleming is calling for a greater effort to "sensitize our young people to the richness of diversity." Police say the attack earlier this month against Loc Minh Truong near three gay bars occurred because his assailants believed that he was a homosexual. Three suspects have been arrested in connection with the alleged hate crime.

Students at Harold Ambuehl Elementary School got a real charge Friday out of a first-ever Energy Fair in which principles of electricity and magnetism came to life out of homemade projects. About 70 Ambuehl fifth-graders created projects for the Energy Fair, ranging from a "Gerbil-Electric Generator" to a hand-made galvanometer, an instrument for detecting or measuring small electrical currents by the movements of a magnetic needle.

In the time I met Margarito Avila and Juan Jose Martinez, I didn't have a chance to get to know them. But I wanted to. They are two members of the 1991 graduating class of Capistrano Valley High School, and that in itself is an accomplishment. The two graduates, by way of introduction, are Latino. More specifically, they are Mexican. What makes them unique is that Avila and Martinez are not from the upper-class neighborhoods where many of their classmates live.
