Pupils send supplies to troops serving in Iraq

Middle school pupils at Trinity Lutheran School in Joppa have sent personal supplies to U.S. soldiers serving in Iraq.

Pupils packed toothpaste, mouthwash, playing cards, batteries, granola bars and similar items in decorated shoeboxes last week.

The project was initiated when a seventh-grader's parents who are in contact with a U.S. soldier in Iraq suggested it.

"This has been a wonderful way for our students to give back and put the needs of others before their own," said Lisa Waskiewicz, a spokeswoman for the school, in a statement.

CCC plans to offer classes to home-schooled students

NORTH EAST -- Cecil Community College has developed a Homeschool Program, which will offer enrichment classes for home-schooled students ages 7 to 15.

The college will introduce its program with an open house from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Jan. 8 in the amphitheater of the Technology Center on the College's North East campus, at 1 Seahawk Drive.

There will be a PowerPoint presentation about the Homeschool Program as well as Cecil's other youth offerings.

Brochures, surveys and on-site registration will be available.

"We're going to be providing classes that might be difficult to teach," said lifelong Oxford, Pa., resident Tina Creighton, Youth Educational Services coordinator at the college. "Not too many parents have a kiln in their house, and we have three for our art courses. We have a music room and a phenomenal media lab for digital photography."

Creighton, who served as a physical education teacher at West Chester Friends School in Pennsylvania, arrived at Cecil in July and surveyed several organizations to find out which topics were the hardest for parents to teach.

As a result, she came up with the initial selections of Digital Photography, Elementary French, French I, Word I, Computer Doctor, Ceramics, Guitar I, Guitar II and Art Masters.

The courses, which begin in February, will run one or two days a week, from four to 12 weeks, and have tuitions ranging from $36 to $96.

Except for Digital Photography, which will be taught in the lab on the North East campus, the first classes will be held in the new state-of-the-art Elkton Station.
