When our kids bring home their report cards Nov. 13, we'll praise their efforts regardless of their grades. But grades are important and good grades deserve recognition.

A select group at Glenelg High School made it through the year last year with straight A's in all four quarters. They are now all members of the elite Glenelg High School 4.0 Club. Congratulations to Amy Barnard, Rebecca Barnard, Dwight Bates, Andrea Bedingfield, Kristen Binck, Jennifer Burkmar, Elizabeth Daxon, Chad Ecalono, Michele Farley, Jeffrey Feaga, Ryan Fischer, Sung Ha, Craig Palmer, Emily Reinke, Becky Richardson, Joseph Ro, Kerina Rutter, Brandon Schurter, Theresa Senn, Cheryl Seymour, Hemant Sharma, Shannon Sneed, Cassandra Thomas and Steven West.

Fresh fruit is a favorite of kids young and old. You can enjoy some really wonderful navel oranges and pink grapefruit from November until April, courtesy of the Glenelg High School Marching Unit. The fruit is delivered by refrigerated truck direct from Florida, fresh from the trees, and is shipped in four-fifths and two-fifths bushel boxes. Order forms are available at the school at 14025 Burntwoods Road in Glenelg. Call Denise Schmidt at 301-854-6415 for more information.

Sounds early to be planning for Christmas, but it's not. Glenelg United Methodist Church Fund Raisers Sandy and Larry Tedrow are all set to take orders for the beautiful Balsam fir wreaths trimmed with pine cones and red velvet bows that many people in our neighborhood enjoyed last year. The 25 inch wreaths are only $20. You must order by Nov. 16, and you must pick up your order at the church Dec. 6 from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Call the Tedrows at (410)489-7338.

Chapelgate Christian Academy is fairly new, but it's growing fast and has been very successful in its first few years. Part of its success is due to the fund-raising activities of its parent volunteers. The first Chapelgate fund-raiser of the season is the Harvest Craft Festival from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the school.

Admission is $2 for adults and $1 for children. This craft show features high quality professional crafts. You'll see corn husk dolls, handmade quilts, flower arrangements, Christmas ornaments, and hand-painted porcelain dolls and carousel horses. With your admission, you are eligible for hourly door prizes and a drawing.

Chapelgate Christian Academy is located at 2600 Marriottsville Road in Marriottsville. Call Kathyrn Heaps at 301-854-0343 for more information.

We've listened to the pollsters and pundits. We're familiar with the candidates, and now it's time to make our choices at the polls. Your vote counts, and your voice helps make up the voice of our area. Please vote Tuesday.

There are two wonderful ladies from western Howard County running for school board in this election. Melvina Brown, mother of five terrific sons, and Sandra French, whose son Andy goes to JTC Glenwood Middle School. When Sandy's son, Matthew, was at Glenelg High, Sandy was the GHS PTSA president. Matthew is a sophomore at Cornell University.

The senior class at Glenelg Country School chose Elizabeth Coburn of Sykesville as its student representative in the DAR Good Citizen Award contest. Liz was chosen for her qualities of dependability, service, leadership, and patriotism in her school, home and community. She was given a pin and certificate, and she will attend a luncheon in the spring. Her award entitles her to compete for cash awards and scholarships in the state.

What's appleology? Ask a first-grader at Lisbon Elementary School, and you'll hear the whole story. The children celebrated the coming of fall recently with appleology activities. Johnny Appleseed, better known as Brenda Van Rautenkranz, made a surprise visit to the children. They made apple crisp, decorated paper apples, studied the life of John Chapman, and did an apple tally math project.

First-grader Megan Branthover arrived at her bus stop a little breathless Oct. 15. She ran all the way to tell her friends the good news: she's a big sister. Her brother Michael Joseph was born that morning at 5:25. He weighed in at 8 pounds, 12 ounces. Congratulations to Jean and Brian Branthover, Michael's proud parents, and to Megan!

Happy Prime Number Birthday to my son Tommy! Tommy is a witty young mathematician and trombonist who will be 11 Monday.

Hope you have a safe, but spooky Halloween!
