IUSD in the News: Favorite teachers honored, Brywood’s got talent, Uni sheds hair

Here’s a roundup of IUSD-related stories and photos that appeared on The Orange County Register’s website this week:

 Students shared poignant essays and poems during a ceremony for the recent “My Favorite Teacher” contest, sponsored by Barnes and Noble and the Irvine Public Schools Foundation.

• Brywood Elementary School held its fifth annual Brywood Talent Show. Organized by local dads, the event featured more than 100 students performing in 50 acts.

 Students and staff from University High School staged a “Shave a Head Fest” fundraiser for the American Cancer Society Youth Chapter and sent some of the day’s lengthier clips to the Locks of Love organization.

 The newspaper also covered Wednesday’s precautionary evacuation of Northwood High School, prompted by a gas main leak on Portola Parkway.
