June 01, 1993|By SUE HALLER

Well, the long weekend has come and gone.

That's the bad news. The good news is that summer is here.

I hope everyone had a good weekend and is recharged and

ready to go!

A group formed to find relief for crowded schools will meet at 7 p.m. Thursday in the Crofton Middle School Media Center.

The committee, consisting of members of the Crofton Middle School PTSA, last week rejected a plan to redraw the middle school boundaries in the Arundel High School feeder system.

Instead, the group voted to lobby the school board to build a second Crofton middle school and a high school.

Congratulations to Lindsey Norbeck, a sixth-grader at Crofton Middle School.

Lindsey was one of four scholarship winners in the county poster contest, "The Importance of Wetlands."

Her scholarship will allow her to go to the Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary Summer Science Camp in Lothian in July.

Don't forget that the Crofton Civic Association is accepting nominations for its annual Citizen of the Year award.
