November 26, 1996|By Vicki Wellford | Vicki Wellford,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

FORTY-SIX Odenton Elementary School third- and fifth-graders were presented awards for their performance in the Anne Arundel Fitness Profile Test.

The health test, required by the school system, helps teachers and parents assess the fitness, flexibility, muscular strength and endurance, and cardio-respiratory endurance of the students.

All students who participated in the test received a fitness report card that allows parents to compare their child's performance against other students the same age. This test will be administered again in the spring.

These students received the Excellence Standard Award for scoring 75 percent or higher on all four test items: third-graders Ross Castell, Holly Shrewsberry and Tiffany Wedding, and fifth-grader Kyle Dennehy.

The Standard Award, given for a score of 50 percent or higher on the four test items, went to: third-graders Antonio Alexander, Daniel Auberzinski, Crystal Campbell, Kristina Chepurko, Ben Dincher, Justin Dorsey, Brittany Fields, Justin Fuson, Katherine Gaskins, Bernard Hammonds, Amanda Huddleston, Cody Lear, Dorian Martin-Smith, David Matthews, Alicia McCullough, Ryan McNeely, Alex Nathan, Heather Oliff, Veronica Olmo, Joseph Olson, Jeanho Rodriquez, Tony Smith, Jose Soto, Scott Spencer, Carlos Villegas, Samantha Walker, Jonathan Wall, Deserey Winkler and Eddie Woodruff.

Fifth-graders receiving the Standard Award were: Michael Cutulle, Jimmy Depfer, James Edwards, Brandon Foster, Brandon Jerkins, Megan Jones, Michael King, Porschea McIntosh, Anna-Marie Ohnesorge, David Thaxter, Jacob Thompson, Brandon Warthen and Guy Wedding.

Giant receipts

Arundel Middle School is collecting those yellow Giant cash register receipts and prescription receipts.

Homerooms are competing to collect the most receipts. Each month the homeroom with the most receipts will get free ice cream at lunch. At the end of the program, the homeroom that has the most receipts will get a pizza party.

Last year Arundel Middle collected $213,824 in Giant and prescription receipts in the Apples for the Students program. The school purchased an Apple color ink-jet printer, an Hewlett-Packard color ink-jet printer, a Magnavox 27-inch color television, three volleyballs and two soccer balls.

The 1996-1997 program will run through March 1.
