South Lake Middle School has became the first in Irvine Unified School District to have a site on the World Wide Web, Principal Judy Cunningham said. "It allows students to network with other students and allows us as a school to know what's going on with other schools," Cunningham said. South Lake's web site, supported by Chapman University, can be accessed through the Internet. It was created by library media teacher Laura Bokesch and science teacher Kelly Diener.

Jillian Schlesinger, 12, has always considered becoming a veterinarian. But it was a python named Penelope at the Science Career Options Conference at UC Irvine on Tuesday that settled any questions she may have had. "I can't believe that I'm really holding Penelope," Jillian said, her eyes wide as she stroked the snake. "I'm not even scared, either. I've just always loved animals and after hearing the speaker [Dr. Gayle Roberts], it convinced me that I will work toward becoming a veterinarian."

The revisions will provide a computer network capable of supporting more than 200 terminals throughout the campus, said Lloyd Linton, director of construction for the Irvine Unified School District.

Trustees of the Irvine Unified School District recently awarded a $350,000 contract to PJHM, a San Clemente architectural firm, to design the proposed Northwood Point Elementary School. The firm also designed Meadow Park Elementary School and the new South Lake Middle School. The Northwood Point school was originally expected to open in the fall of 1997, but opening may be delayed for a year so that its development coincides with that of the adjacent Northwood Point community.

I am a seventh-grader at South Lake Middle School in Irvine. I am writing to you in regards of the problems involving the Newport Back Bay and the Irvine Ranch Water District. On May 21 our class took a trip to the Newport Back Bay. We went around the area looking at the birds and animals in the bay. We went around to different stations and had different things we had to write about. We are now in the process of making an album to describe our two days at the bay. On May 23 our class took another trip to test different sites along the San Diego Creek.

Call it the end of an era for sweaty students: Lawn sprinklers--those water-spouting wonders that make a summer romp through the grass so satisfying--appear to be going the way of the one-room schoolhouse. At least at South Lake Middle School. When the new campus opens in the fall, aboveground sprinklers will be absent from the athletic field. Instead, the area will be watered by a series of sprinklers buried seven inches below the surface.
