Kicking off fall with festival at Warren Elementary [Cockeysville]

Fall is in the air and Warren Elementary School will be kicking off the season with their Fall Fest on Friday, Oct. 10, from 4:30 till 7:30 p.m. Stop by for food, games and fun and catch a special appearance by one of Baltimore's favorite birds, Poe the Ravens mascot. There will also be a silent auction featuring a JJ Hardy-autographed bat along with items from Under Amour, Black & Decker and more. The school is located at 900 Bosley Road.

Pot Spring Elementary has recently been honored, not once but twice, for being among the nation's healthiest schools. The school was named as a National Recognition Award winner by the Let's Move Active Schools organization for creating an active school environment, helping students learn, focus and grow through the integration of physical activity before, during and after school. "Each year, the school sponsors Food Plate Fridays, the Race for Education pre-conditioning program and other wellness school initiatives," said school nurse Rebecca Colt-Ferguson.

The school also received the 2014 National Healthy Schools Award from the Alliance for a Healthier Generation – just one of nine schools in Maryland to be recognized. Pot Spring Elementary School principal, Jane Martin said, "We have created a healthier and happier environment for students and staff alike and we are proud of the great results we've had so far."

Pot Spring students will be putting all their healthy habits to the test when the school holds its 4th annual Race For Education on Oct. 28.  Race day is great fun with every student running or walking as much as they can in an hour to raise money for school activities and events. The schoolwide event is much anticipated with even the smallest runners clocking in with a mile or two and some doing up to 5 miles.  Good luck to all the participants!

Time to lace up those shoes and hit the courts … basketball registration is underway! Cockeysville Recreation Council offers leagues for both girls and boys beginning in late November. This is a great winter activity for ages 6 to 17 with both in-house and travel leagues available. Check out all the details at http://www.cockeysvillereccouncil.org.

Kudos to the Girl Scouts of Service Unit 683, based in Cockeysville, who provided items for Happy Hope bags for children in local  hospitals.  As a part of a HOPE Factory event, these young scouts came together to produce handmade bracelets, homemade cards and coloring books for  other youngsters who are undergoing treatment for chronic and life threatening illnesses.  The project was sponsored by the Message of Hope Foundation who will deliver the bags to thousands of children across Maryland.
