No Dasher, no Dancer, no Prancer nor Vixen. And forget about Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen. If you must know, the Santa visiting Gault Street School on Thursday gave his reindeer the day off and took a helicopter, thank you very much. But the 450 assembled schoolchildren didn't miss the reindeer one bit--especially not with visits from city firefighters, magician Joey Kabosius and the life-size cartoon characters Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck.

A dark hat and a bushy beard partially obscuring his pale face, Yuri Drell stood guard at the entrance to Van Nuys Middle School. "Hi, I'm Dmitri Mendeleev," he announced to passing students from Kester Avenue Elementary School, embracing his role as the discoverer of the periodic table. Yuri was one of about 70 students taking part Thursday in the school's annual Multicultural Invention and Discovery Fair.

Despite what science textbooks include or omit, there are inventors other than Albert Einstein and innovative cultures beyond America and Europe--as Van Nuys Middle School students can well attest. On Thursday, about 70 seventh-graders at the school will display their knowledge of diverse cultures and inventors to parents, peers and elementary students during the school's second Multicultural Invention and Discovery Fair.

Before the lemon-yellow school bus bearing the blue C-SPAN logo arrived at Millikan Middle School, eighth-grader Lupe Romo hadn't even heard of the Cable Satellite Public Affairs Network, let alone watched it. But after touring the 45-foot-long television studio on wheels and seeing the three television cameras, the eight-channel audio board, the fax machine, the studio lights and the two laser disc players, Lupe delivered a verdict. "It's cool," she said.

Three new murals and about 50 flowering plants greeted students at the Erwin Street Elementary School on Monday--the result of a volunteer-driven weekend cleanup of the school's exterior. From raking to sweeping, planting to painting, about 60 volunteers from the community, Universal Studios and the school spruced up the campus to boost morale among the 1,000 students accustomed to seeing graffiti and patchy grass at school.

Painting murals, planting flowers, and clearing litter aren't exactly glamorous tasks, but Erwin Street Elementary School parents, students, faculty and community members will shun glitz Saturday as they tidy the school's exterior. Principal Marla Mondheim has dubbed the beautification event the "roll up your sleeves and pitch in to help" day. The school is often marred by graffiti and is surrounded by dying, patchy grass, which will be reseeded.

Van Nuys Middle School student Ruchika Puri, 14, never knew that 10 veterans were in her midst. Frankly, neither did Student Body President Hannah Jung, 15. Standing in the dew-drenched grass of the school's physical education field Thursday, Ruchika and Hannah saw their teachers and administrators in a new light--as the Army, Navy and Air Force veterans that they are.
