Staggered school openings help ease way for new students


August 21, 1996|By Bonita Formwalt | Bonita Formwalt,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

COUNTY SCHOOLS open their doors Monday to welcome students for the 1996-97 school year.

Some students will get an extra day of vacation because Monday will be a school day for new middle and high school youngsters. Everyone will be expected to report Tuesday.

John Kozora, principal of Marley Middle School, sees the staggered opening as a way of easing the adjustment to a new school.

"The separate opening -- will give school staff the opportunity to provide extra assistance to sixth graders who are attending Marley Middle for the first time," he explained.

Corkran Middle School will follow the same schedule.

For additional information call the school offices: Marley Middle, 761-0934, or Corkran Middle, 222-6493.

Glen Burnie High also has planned a staggered opening, with new ninth-graders and all other students new to Glen Burnie High due to report at 7: 17 a.m. Monday.

Returning students will report to their homeroom at 7: 17 a.m. on Tuesday. Homeroom assignments were published in the principal's August/September newsletter recently mailed to registered students. Copies can be obtained in the school office.

All students should note the school day has been lengthened by eight minutes; the day begins at 7: 17 a.m. and ends at 1: 55 p.m.

When students arrive they will find several changes in the faculty and staff, starting with a new principal, David Hill. Hill comes to Glen Burnie from Annapolis High, where he was an assistant principal.

Additional staff changes at Glen Burnie High are: Frank Drazen and George McGhee, assistant principals; Frank Sudal, guidance; Jeff Tinini, math; Emily Tyler, English; Charlotte Brooks, art; LeAnne Williamson, Level V; and Helen Lowery, teaching assistant.

Parents will be able to meet their children's teachers at the annual PTSA Back to School Night at 7 p.m. on Sept. 24.

For additional information call the school office, 761-8950.

Golf tournament

Golfers are invited to tee off for the 10th Annual Peroutka & Peroutka Charity Golf Tournament, Monday at the Walden Country Club in Crofton. Proceeds benefit Arthur Slade Regional Catholic School.

Registration is at 9 a.m., with a 10 a.m. shotgun start.

The cost is $100 per golfer, which includes greens fees, cart, on-course refreshments and dinner. Sponsorships are available for $50, boosters for $20.

Door prizes will be given and awards for the low foursome, closest to the pin and longest drive. A hole in one will win the lucky golfer a new car, courtesy of Boyle Buick. Proceeds will benefit the school's technology fund.

Co-sponsored by local attorneys Michael Peroutka and his brother Steven Peroutka, the tournaments have raised more than $35,000 for the school their children attend.

For registration or information call the law office, 768-2425, or the school, 766-8614.

Religion classes

The Church of the Good Shepherd is having registration for the parish's school of religion on Monday and Tuesday in the church hall.

Parents of students entering grades 1 through 8 can register after a 7: 30 p.m. meeting. Students in grades 9 though 12 can register between 8 p.m. and 8: 30 p.m.

Kindergarten registration will be in December.

Annual registration is required of all students, new and returning. A certificate of baptism is required for first-time registrants. Children transferring from other parishes need a letter of grade certification.
