John O'Brien said the opportunity to teach and lead the mid-grade level at Viewpoint School in Calabasas was enough of an incentive for him to head west from his native Massachusetts. O'Brien, who started as head of Viewpoint's middle school on July 1, will oversee fifth- through eighth-grade classes with a total enrollment of about 210 next year. In addition to his administrative duties, he will teach a fifth-grade U.S. history class and hopes to coach an athletic team.

A new international theater festival is set to debut in Calabasas next month, featuring performers from Ireland, the United Kingdom and Israel. The four-day California International Theatre Festival will run Aug. 20 to 23 at various locations throughout Calabasas. The festival is being organized by actress Linda Purl, who last year directed the Rubicon International Theatre Festival in Ventura. When financial cutbacks caused the Ventura festival to be canceled for 2009, Purl approached the city of Calabasas, which agreed to partially fund the new festival.

The May 1 sports section of The Times contained an article about a girls softball game between Viewpoint School and Simi Lutheran High School. Your headline read, "Viewpoint No Match for Simi Lutheran, 62-1." My colleagues, students, and I were distressed to see this lopsided score given such notoriety in your paper. Many of our players this year are inexperienced 9th- and 10th-grade girls who have done reasonably well. Your article serves only to embarrass our athletes. We encourage all students at Viewpoint to join a team regardless of their ability or experience with a sport.

As classes begin at Sierra Canyon School next week, Howard Wang's past frustrations about recruiting minority students will be tempered by a few good signs. Wang, the school's founding co-director, said the number of black students is increasing slowly, although the number of Latino students still lags. Attracting bright youths by appealing to parents, churches and community groups, and offering tuition assistance, all seem to be working, he said.

As Mark Twain might have put it: reports of the demise of Meadow Oaks School in Calabasas have been greatly exaggerated. The school is open and registering students for the fall term, despite its failed attempt earlier this year to merge with neighboring Viewpoint School, said Dennis Fliegelman, interim administrator for the school.
