Pick a Pack of Winners. As part of Noe Valley Word Week, students from Alvarado, James Lick, and Fairmount schools gathered at the Noe Valley Library March 16 to share their prize-winning poems and essays. After reading their work, the students feasted on alphabet cookies made by the Noe Valley Bakery. The event was sponsored by Friends of Noe Valley, with help from Marilyn Koral of James Lick, Kim Green of Fairmount, and Morgan Benz and Joyce Romano of Alvarado School.    Photo by Peggy Cling
