Fourth-, fifth- and sixth-graders in the Los Altos School District will strive to break records and showcase good sportsmanship at the district’s 57th annual Junior Olympics, slated April 29 at Mountain View High School.

The interschool meet will feature students from Almond, Covington, Gardner Bullis, Loyola, Oak Avenue, Santa Rita and Springer elementary schools. More than 1,600 young athletes are expected to compete in events including basketball free throws, chin-ups, hurdles, the 75-yard dash, the 1,320-yard run, the softball throw, the standing long jump, jump rope and the relay race.

Mountain View High students participate in late-night study sessions for the Science Olympiad tournament.

Mountain View High School’s Science Olympiad team finished second in this month’s state championship, earning medals in 15 out of 22 events, including first-place medals in Ecology, Hydrogeology and Electric Vehicle events.

Just three years ago, according to head coach Anita Wood, the Science Olympiad club’s haphazard meeting schedule had the team regularly placing last or next-to-last. They had never won a medal, nor qualified for state.

The K-Kids Club, comprising second- through sixth-graders, has collected more than 1,000 pairs of glasses each year with help from the public and storeowners who offer space for collection buckets.

Mountain View High student Zakriya Bashir-Hill works on his original musical composition for the 24-Hour Composers Concert.

It was as if a trance had fallen over the Mountain View High School band room.

All was calm, still: no sound but typing as a group of six instrumental music students worked furiously on original compositions, knowing the music they were writing would be performed for an audience in less than two days.

Elementary and junior high school choirs harmonize in joint performance

Choirs from six Los Altos schools perform in a 260-strong combined chorus at last month’s showcase, with participants ranging in age from first to eighth grades.

The Egan Junior High School auditorium filled with song March 29 as 260 local elementary and junior high students brought their voices together at the fifth annual Los Altos School District Choral Showcase.

Joining their Egan hosts were choral groups from Blach Intermediate School, Bullis Charter, Covington, Oak Avenue and Springer elementary schools, with singers ranging from grades 1 to 8.
