Volunteers still needed at Lisbon Elementary WEST COUNTY -- Clarksville * Highland * Glenelg * Lisbon

NEIGHBORS

October 01, 1992|By SALLY BUCKLER

Geese honking noisily overhead remind us of the many changes fall brings. The trees slowly turn color. Barefoot no more, we get out warm sweaters and contemplate the first fire of the season. This fall has brought a change for me.

For the past two years, I have had the pleasure of writing the Glenwood and Glenelg neighborhood column for the Howard County Times. Now I'll continue to meet our neighbors through this new column for western Howard County in The Sun.

Part of the fun of writing a neighborhood column is receiving local news. People in west county generously share reports from their families, churches, scout troops, schools, and other organizations. It's interesting to learn about the goings on in our area. I look forward to hearing from you.

Lisbon Elementary School leaped out of the starting gate this year. On the first day of school, the Lisbon Lion, the children and the PTA gave each student a welcome back pencil. The Lisbon community enjoyed a PTA-sponsored ice cream social on Sept. 11, and parents visited classrooms on Sept. 22 during a well-attended PTA Back to School night.

The Lisbon staff, including new principal Lou Chillemi, appreciates the volunteers who help in the school. To show their appreciation, the staff had a Volunteer Tea and orientation session for the helpers Sept. 18. If you haven't had a chance to offer your time to the school, it's not too late. Call assistant principal Joanne Winters at 410-313-5506.

Sue Neiman made more of her special cakes for the PTA luncheon for the teachers at Bushy Park Elementary School early in September. Her cakes are almost too pretty to eat, and she has shared them with the Bushy Park staff often. Strawberry cheesecake decorated with real and sugar strawberries, cupcakes gloriously topped with roses, and sheet cakes with amusing messages roll out of Sue's kitchen. For information about her cakes, call Sue at (410) 489-5013.

The Bushy Park Elementary School PTA has many new volunteers this year. Among them is local cabinet maker Bernie Huddlestun, whose son is in fourth grade. Bernie is sharing his deep interest in education as a delegate from the Bushy Park community to both the Howard County PTA Council and the Board of Education Citizens Advisory Committee. Bernie earned his doctorate in philosophy at Catholic University and is committed to quality education for all our children.

Glenwood Middle School is having a Bicycle Safety Inspection ++

Day in November. A mechanic will inspect bikes brought to school and fix minor safety problems free of charge. Each owner will receive a bicycle inspection form and may take a short lesson in basic bike maintenance. You may purchase bike helmets at Glenwood and learn how to adjust and wear your new helmet. Sign up sheets for inspections and workshops will be distributed soon through the schools. All Bushy Park, Lisbon, West Friendship, Glenwood, and Glenelg students may participate in this Safety Day.

Don't throw away those cash register tapes! Local schools want them for their campaigns to earn new equipment for the schools. Tapes from Giant, Safeway, and George's are needed. The Safeway and George's tapes are white, and tapes from September on are useful. Giant tapes are yellow, and the tape program at Giant begins Oct. 11. Send your tapes to the PTA at the school of your choice, or give them to a child to take to school.

The Glenelg High School general PTA meeting for this month is Oct. 12, and the topic is Drugs and Alcohol.
