Accused of not hanging up their jackets, two defendants giggled and squirmed in their seats like schoolgirls, which they were. "How do you plead?" asked Leila Pearsall, 8, of Hamilton. "Guilty," said the girls, also 8, who had the option of paying 50-cent fines or being brought up on charges. They were sentenced to 25 minutes of community service: cleaning the play room. The setting was the Judicial Committee room at Arts & Ideas Sudbury School, also known as AI Sudbury. The 6-year-old alternative school, founded in Hamilton and operated as a democratic community managed by students and staff, moved this year to the old St. John's Episcopal Church at Kelly Avenue and South Street in Mount Washington.

He was the kind of old-fashioned principal who walked the halls and talked to his students. "Why is my son using such vulgar language?" he would ask boys he caught playing the dozens in the hallways.

Wilde Lake Middle School Principal Tom Saunders stood with his hand extended, welcoming the 161 eighth-graders to give him a high-five on the final day of their middle school career. Many students slapped his palm with an enthusiastic crack. Others opted for a hug. And there were a number who were so overcome with emotion that they headed to the nearest adult to console them as they cried at the thought of leaving their beloved school. Saunders was joined by the entire staff of the school Wednesday for its annual "clap out" ceremony, in which the adults line the halls leading to the school entrance to give the eighth-graders a final sendoff.

A distinct bustle filled the kitchen of the Falcon's Nest cafe as 11 a.m. approached. "Excuse me - hot," said Katina Guyton, pulling a tray of ciabatta rolls from the oven and walking to the counter out front. There, with gloves and black hairnets snapped on, her colleagues - also her classmates - were lining up behind a display of deli meats, cheeses, soups and other food. It was almost time for the lunch-hour rush of students and staff at the Forbush School at Glyndon. At the Falcon's Nest, students run the show - from food preparation to the cleanup.
