Folly Quarter Middle School is making plans for its annual community indoor yard sale, to be held Saturday, March 23, from 8 am to noon at the school.
While you are stuck inside with cabin fever, waiting for the warmer days of springtime, it is the perfect time to get a head start on some early spring cleaning. Clean out closets, basements, and garages, and make plans to sell your items at the yard sale.
If you have a craft or product you wish to sell, space is available for that too at $15 per space, and vendors keep their profits.
Donations are also accepted at the PTA's donation tables. The donation tables will be open to "invited guests" to shop for free.
These guests are from local agencies that serve those less fortunate. Donations are tax deductible. Donations can be dropped off at the school Friday, March 22, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the cafeteria. For more information or to reserve a space, call, 443-506-7394 or email Neighbornetwk@aol.com
Congratulations to the 18 finalists in the fourth annual Bushy Park Spelling Bee who bravely stepped up to the microphone to tackle challenging words in front of an audience of over 200 students, parents, and teachers in mid-January.
This years' bee took an unbelievable 39 rounds over two days to complete (a school record!), and featured such demanding words as polymathic and salubrious to determine a winner.
The spelling bee ended with fifth grader Eldah Elias the winner and fifth grader Kelsey Flavin as the runner-up. This is Eldah's second win and she will go on to represent Bushy Park Elementary School in the Howard County Spelling Bee in early March at Reservoir High School.
Bushy Park is proud of all the students who stepped up to the spelling challenge. Class level winners included fourth graders Sariah Daly, Gustavo Urbina, Alexandra Knox, Evan Williams, Tim Pearson, David Richman, Esmeralda Osborne and Michael Salandra.
Fifth grade class level winners included Grace Hills, Arya Vahdatshoar, Eldah Elias, Grace Parry, Kelsey Flavin, Laken Marshall, Jamie O'Connell, Magdi Hassanein, Henna Datta and Sydney Repole.
Triadelphia Ridge Elementary School is proud of its talented young art students who recently had art selected to participate in several local shows. If you are by the Miller Branch Library, be sure to look for works of art by Grayson Capadonno, Nicholas Mirecki, Connor Roth, Camille Schlanger and Aiden Zhang.
These kindergarteners have their work on display through April 22 as part of the Youth Art Month Showcase.
Not to be outdone, second graders Susan Kuhn, Jason Jia, Lauren LaPointe and Alex Patrone will have their art on display through March 12 at the Department of Education Gallery, as part of the annual grade level art showcase.
