After an hour and a half of boisterous Christmas and Hanukkah songs Wednesday morning, the holiday show at Dixie Canyon Avenue Elementary School ground nearly to a halt.

Ending a four-year standoff with neighbors, the Buckley School has abandoned plans to expand facilities and boost enrollment on its wooded campus. The exclusive private school, nestled in a picturesque canyon at the end of Stansbury Avenue, had long grappled with neighbors' complaints about traffic jams and parking problems on nearby streets. When the school proposed in 1996 nearly doubling its square footage and adding 220 students, a small uproar ensued.

In a break with school district tradition, Assistant Principal Norman Isaacs of Millikan Middle School was named the new principal of the Sherman Oaks school Tuesday night.

In late March, nine Power Macintosh computers and an equal number of printers--worth about $31,500--were stolen from the North Hollywood elementary, according to school estimates.

Who would guess that the world could fit inside an auditorium on Riverside Drive? That is exactly what the people from Charlotte and Elise Merdinian Armenian Evangelical School arranged Friday as part of the school's annual multicultural day.

"We need more cookies n' cream!" shouted fourth-grader William Wilkerson as he surveyed the crowd of Buckley School second- and third-graders swarming in front of the campus "milk house" to buy a scoop of Ben & Jerry's ice cream. "These grades usually sell us out," he said, wiping more ice cream on his already mottled T-shirt. "When the fifth-graders have their lunch period, they get frustrated because we run out of flavors."

There aren't many areas to find shade and a respite from the hot weather at Chandler Elementary School. But that's about to change, thanks to the volunteers who planted trees at the school Saturday morning. "Grass and trees cool the local temperature. It just makes it a nicer place to be," said Ravi K. Bhatia, a program manager with the nonprofit TreePeople. "If the asphalt is 110 degrees, playing is the last thing on your mind. You just want shade."

Joo Lee Song leaned back in her chair, staring down at the table in front of her, deep in thought. She never responds to a question without thinking hard about the answer and the consequences that may follow. This time, the co-president of the Millikan Middle School Parent-Teacher-Student Assn. had been asked how her first year in office had been going, and whether the school had been receptive to her ideas. After a brief silence, she looked up. "I'd have to say it's been a great year.

Norman Isaacs has run a lot of miles in his life, including more than 200 accumulated in eight marathons. But none meant as much to so many people as the 12 he set out to run yesterday. The run was part of a deal Isaacs, principal of Millikan Middle School, and other faculty members made with students during the annual canned-food drive that ended last week. The drive was directed by teacher Howard Cahn's leadership class. For every 500 cans collected, Isaacs and Cahn promised to run one mile.

Plans to expand Buckley School moved forward recently when officials applied for a conditional-use permit from the city.

As a banner commemorating Kennedy's life flapped in a gusty breeze, many students and teachers could not keep their minds off the tragic death of their classmate, 13-year-old Matthew Fischer, who was killed Friday when he was struck by a car in Woodland Hills on his way home from school.
