“And when school begins again in August, we will reiterate the need for staff, students and families to report any incidents of bigotry, hate and bullying,” McPhetridge said. After the racist graffiti was found at Edison in November last year, parents and others rallied at campuses across the Alameda school district to call for inclusion. The discovery also prompted the May 31 meeting at Edison, at which Jacqueline Regev, an education director for the Anti-Defamation League, urged those gathered to actively support tolerance for all sides in America’s political debate, especially in the classroom.

There are some awkward lapses in the “Funny Girl” script, though Demers does his best to minimize them here. Costumes can add a lot to any production, and Lisa Cross does an excellent job of creating the period costumes of the 1920s and ’30s (a minor flaw is that some of WolfKlain’s Fanny outfits — in the years when she can well afford nice clothes — made her look frumpy). But for the “His Love Makes Me Beautiful” number, the ensemble’s wedding topper dresses are Ziegfeld Follies’ caliber.

For the competitive swimmer, the news was devastating. “Skin disease is so visual; you can’t hide from it,” Tenconi said. “I really had to learn pretty quickly what reality was, of what people would say or what people would think of me.”.
