Partnerships benefit pupils at Talbot Springs

NEIGHBORS

January 24, 1995|By NATALIE HARVEY

Talbot Springs Elementary School pupils and parents this month slid into the school's newest partnership,with the Columbia Association. The event was the annual sock hop with the association's Tim Brockington teaching the electric slide and other line dances. When it was over, ice cream sundaes replaced some of the energy spent on the dance floor.

The school's other partners -- the Supreme Court fitness center in Owen Brown village and the Athletic Club in Harper's Choice village -- are working to develop an after-school fitness program for students and teachers. Supreme Court Manager Lorretta Patterson arranged for two of her instructors, Mark Murray and Darryl Nickleson, to lead aerobics classes at Talbot. Both men teach at the school, so they will have the advantage of knowing the exercisers.
