August 11, 1996|By Phyllis Flowers and Phyllis Lucas | Phyllis Flowers and Phyllis Lucas,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

LINDALE/BROOKLYN Park Middle School has its work cut out for it even before the new school year begins.

The school has been designated an Alert School, which means it will be closely monitored by local and state school officials, and additional assistance will be provided when it appears that students' performance could fall below state standards.

The three major goals of the school improvement plan center on attendance, behavior and Maryland Performance Assessment Program test scores.

The school staff and administrators from central office will be available to answer questions at a community meeting in the school auditorium at 7 p.m. Wednesday. Parents are encouraged to attend.

The last orientation for new students will be at 1 p.m. Aug. 19. Students will tour the school and be given a sample schedule to follow on their own. Parents will be given a brief overview of the school, and child-raising skills will be discussed.

Unusual summer

This time last year, we were complaining about getting pounded day after day by the heat and humidity. But the summer of 1996 has had stretches of hot days broken by a few days of cool, crisp ones.

Let's all hope our luck holds this winter, and Mother Nature delivers just enough snow for everyone to get in the spirit of the season, then clear out for spring.

In the meantime, we need to get through the the rest of the summer, and what better way to do it than partying with friends and neighbors?

The Roland Terrace Democratic Club, 619 Matthews Ave. in Brooklyn Park, is throwing a Platter Party from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. next Sunday.

Live music will be provided by the band Quick Change. For $6, you get a platter, beer, soda and set-ups.

For more information, call Pauline Harvey, at 789-3651, or the club, at 636-1504, after 7 p.m.
