Northfield Elementary signed partnerships Nov. 6 with Countryside Veterinary Clinic, Dorsey Hall Garden Club and McDonald's of Route 40 West. Elkridge Landing Middle agreed to work with Eva Anderson Dancers in an agreement signed Nov. 9.

In Northfield's partnership with the veterinary clinic, Dr. Mary Beth Soverns -- who also is a parent at the school -- will teach students about the proper care and training of pets.

Members of the garden club will teach students about conservation and horticultural practices.

Cathy Bell, owner of the McDonald's franchise, will teach students about economics and how to operate a business. The restaurant also will sponsor a family night for Northfield.

Elkridge Landing's partnership with Eva Anderson will lead to classes in creative dance, permitting students to experience dance and learn to appreciate it.

Wilde Lake Middle School and Wilde Lake High School also established partnerships with Eva Anderson on Nov. 9, and similar classes will be taught.
