Are you concerned about teens who drink and use drugs? Glenelg High School's PTSA will try to help you sort out this important issue next Monday . Interested parents of children of all ages are invited to attend a panel presentation about the dangerous combination of youth and alcohol. The discussion entitled "Partytime -- What are Parents Legal Responsibilities?" begins at 7:30 p.m.

Representatives from the Howard County Police Youth Division, health department's Alcohol and Drug Prevention division, the insurance industry, the alcohol education office of the Howard County Public Schools, and MADD will talk, not lecture, to parents. This is a chance for adults to better understand their own choices and responsibilities.

The PTSA encourages you to attend the meeting, which is open to the public. Neighborhood citizens' groups may send representatives to the meeting to take important information back to their community. You don't need to be a Glenelg High parent to benefit from this panel discussion. Call PTSA President Bobbi Meacham at 410-489-4568 for more information.

An organization can be a vigorous, energetic whole or TC fragmented group that endures ritual meetings. The Student Government Association at Glenelg High School, under the leadership of President Brian Meshkin, is concerned, sophisticated, and focused on making a difference. This year the assembly has continued traditions like the SGA Staff Breakfast at the start of the school year. The students became more involved by initiating Operation Cooperation.

Every faculty member at the school had an SGA member assist && in preparing for the school year. The main project for September and October is project HUNGER, Helping Underprivileged Neighbors Gain Effective Relief. The students collected money while selling tickets to a school dance, and donated part of it to local folks in need.

The next focus of the SGA, called a Season of Charity, will be on community service projects. A Season of Charity takes place in November and December. Besides outreach projects, the SGA has developed Commissions on Student Life to give students a mechanism to solve real and perceived problems at the school. We look forward to hearing more from the Glenelg High SGA.

The office staff at Bushy Park Elementary School is short one secretary, so the crew is working at breakneck speed to keep things going. A replacement will arrive; meanwhile a very dedicated volunteer helps in the office every morning. Kathy Bird of Dayton, whose son attends Bushy Park, answers phones, fields questions, and helps children and teachers, always with a smile. When the new secretary arrives, Kathy will do more PTA work at the school. Where would we be without wonderful volunteers like Kathy in our neighborhood?

Forget your diet. The Cub Scouts are selling M&M's to raise funds. You'll see them selling it at local markets. You know you like this candy, and the boys hope you'll buy lots. Plain and peanut M&M's are just $1 per box.
