School breaks offer a little ray of hope


August 25, 1994|By JONI GUHNE

As premature as this may sound, before we meet again the kids will be back in school. If this news sends your child into a state of shock, remind the little scholar that there are all kinds of breaks coming up: Monday, Sept. 5, is Labor Day; state and county primary elections will be held Tuesday, Sept. 13; and on Wednesday, Sept. 21, school will end early to give teachers an in-service training day.


At Severna Park Middle School, Principal Judy Jenkins will greet her students at 7:55 a.m. Monday.

Charles Dunlap, the new sixth-grade administrator from Glen Burnie High School, also will work with eighth-graders. Patty Andrews, from Chesapeake Bay Middle, will be teaching sixth-grade social studies, and Sherry Weaver, from Crofton Middle, will teach sixth-grade mathematics.
