Children's art

Schoolchildren's art charms the heart.

Here's some recognition for student artists in our area.

Three Ilchester Elementary School students created artwork for the cover page of Superintendent Michael E. Hickey's proposed fiscal 1998 budget summary. Sara Alcock, Matthew Cornell and Mondana Shahrohk of Rob Langevin's fifth-grade art class did the drawings of aquatic life that grace this document.

The Elkridge library has a rotating display of work by students of art teachers Alisa Wasilewski and Bruce Wong from Elkridge Elementary School.

The display exemplifies the multicultural experiences with art to which students are exposed in their classes.

Children whose work is currently displayed include first-graders TC Leslie Proffitt, Courtney Law, Alex Newman, Brandon Blankenship, Cameron Sturr, Kevin McMillian, Heather Mier, Julia Townsend, Bruce Harry, Rachel Miller, Allison Cashmark and Travis McClenny.

The second-graders whose work is included are Ciera Bosworth, Jesse Moore, Eli Howard, Sandra Steinrucken, Stacy Sarioglou, Matthew Winters, Nicole McAdoo and Wesley Clark.

Third-graders are Kristine Clark, Sonia Desai, Matt Vechionni, Ashleigh Dwyer, Beverly Huang, Brian Weinerman, Emily Townsend, Michael Chow, Britney Rhoades, Karin Greene, Rachael Burarqug, Holly Hayden, Johnna Esposito, Laura Cellini and Danielle Worley.

The fourth-grade artists on display are Erica Bouchat, Casey Pecore, Maria Binder, Kim Tavenner, Sam Viswasam, Scott Bauer, Amanda Hodge, Patrick Baker, Virag Desai, Van Furrow, Bobbi Jo Bussey and Jessica Casey; and fifth-graders Rachel Templar, Lisa Thompson and Matthew Lee.

Deep Run Elementary School congratulates the students whose entries have been selected on a county level to compete in the Maryland State PTA Reflections Program: visual artist Ethan Rosenthal; writers Benjamin Skalski, Tony Maria and Lindsay Zettel; and musicians Jonathan Emden and Matthew Sachs.

And Dunloggin Middle School congratulates its students whose entries will also compete in the state reflections program -- visual artists Alvin Jia and Julie Seo, writers Patrick Hughes and Svetlana Yarosh and musicians Xiaosong Meng and Adam Brewington.

Safety lights

Mary Jane Fleck of Columbia Hills wants to remind her neighbors to leave their front lights burning outside throughout the night.

It doesn't save much money to turn off the light at bedtime, and in light of the recent Wheatfields rape, the pennies may be well spent.

Church activities

Harwood Park and Wesley Chapel United Methodist churches held a "Souperbowl Sunday" -- with parishioners asked to donate a can of soup at the Sunday worship service.

Together, the churches say they collected 26 bags of canned goods.

The food was donated to the Elkridge Food Pantry.

Emily McKinney Falls was baptized Jan. 26, at Harwood Park church, with parents Kevin and Tania Falls and godparents Christine Cohill and Jon Bevins on hand.

Tania Falls, Nancy Allen and Claude Sacker also became church members.

The churches are holding a series of potluck dinners and Lenten services Wednesdays during Lent.

Dinner at 6: 30 p.m. is followed by a service at 7: 30 p.m.

This week, the service will be at Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church, 7745 Waterloo Road.

Directions: Pastor Bob Hunter, 796-5565.


Condolences to the family of George Dahle, a vice president of the Rouse Co. and resident of Valley Meade in Ellicott City, who died Feb. 6.

The family includes his wife, Carla; sons Gregory, Gary and Christopher; daughter Kyra; daughters-in-law Lisa and Katherine; and grandchildren Jenna, Madison and Ryan.

Elementary band

Four Centennial Lane Elementary students auditioned successfully for the Howard County Elementary Band: Jessica Engler, Colin O'Haver, Michael Trexler and Jim Abshire.
