For several years, Genie Aguilar watched as just outside her classroom window weeds sprouted in the neglected atrium and tree roots crawled beneath the buildings at Santiago Hills School. The same things were happening in the school's two other atriums and, as an avid gardener, Aguilar couldn't bear to sit by and watch. So, in January, Aguilar and two other third-grade teachers led a campaign to remove the overgrown trees and relandscape all three atriums with water-efficient plants.

Against the backdrop of space-age office towers, a group of schoolchildren Monday caught a glimpse of the natural world as they planted the beginnings of a meadow in the San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary. About 120 second- and third-grade students from Santiago Hills Elementary School in Irvine eagerly dug into the muddy clay soil of the sanctuary, planting an estimated 1,000 plugs of native California bunch grass in about an hour and a half.

It makes Carol Martin and other parents at Santiago Hills Elementary School worry to see children ride their tiny bikes across Irvine Boulevard as trucks and cars speed by at 50 m.p.h. So they decided to do something about it. On Monday, the Santiago Hills PTA held a bike rodeo designed to instill safe-biking habits in children while showing them a good time. "We hope to prevent an accident," said Martin, organizer of the event. "We are trying to teach safety before we have a tragedy."

Walking through a hallway at the Orange County Rescue Mission, 11-year-old Connie Chilton contrasted this world with the affluent neighborhoods where she and her classmates live. "It's very real," she said solemnly. "Where we live doesn't seem real compared to this. We don't have the problems they have here." Connie was among four classrooms of fifth- and sixth-grade students from Santiago Hills Elementary School in Irvine who toured the rescue mission Friday morning.
