Harbor Hospital Center news: With the start of the school year comes the second season for the hospital's highly successful tutoring program, Project Teach.

Last year, the hospital adopted Francis Scott Key Elementary/Middle School.

Employees volunteer a maximum of two hours per week tutoring in reading, composition, grammar, math and science. There are plans to broaden the program to include the fine arts.

Pam Berggren, an eighth-grade counselor at the school, says the program brought results in just a few months.

* Do you worry about leaving your child home when they are sick and you have to go to work? The hospital's Sick Child Day Care Service may be the solution to your problem.

This program is available weekdays from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. for children of all ages. The service is staffed by nursing assistants who are experienced in caring for sick children and a child life specialist who tailors activities to a child's age and sickness. Isolation rooms are available for children with communicable illnesses.

Parents may preregister their children and must notify the center one to two hours before coming in. A registered nurse will determine from the child's symptoms whether the conditions are too severe to permit attendance.
