Murray Hill Middle School seeks business partnerships


November 07, 1997|By Lourdes Sullivan | Lourdes Sullivan,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

BUSINESSES interested in tax credits -- and community kudos -- should contact Murray Hill Middle School.

Our newest neighborhood school is getting the kinks out of its system. Construction was finished just before the beginning of the fall term.

In the flurry of activity that comes with the start of school, PTA and school officials have not called businesses to set up partnerships.

Here is an opportunity to make a difference in children's lives, get a tax break and create goodwill among a student body of several hundred.

Bank branches, dentists and florists are among the many types of businesses that enter into partnerships with schools.

Information: 410-880-5897.

Murray Hill has gotten off to a fine start with a great deal of parent support.

Thanks go to Cindy Rogers, Nancy Carpenter, Elizabeth Mudge, Michelle Fishetti, Jennifer Simpson, Leslie Dorman, Nancy Slavinski, Vicki Baker, Pat Flynn, Nina Blush, Kim Steele, Helen Giove, Pam Scott and Jackie Factor and their families for the goodies served at the school's Staff Appreciation Day.

Among student volunteers, the sixth grade was recognized for having sold the most candy for the PTA fund-raiser.

Sixth-grader Joey Morgan, as top seller, will be principal for a day.

ChADD meeting

The local chapter of Children and Adults with Attention Deficit Disorders will hold its monthly meeting at its new location, Laurel Regional Hospital, at 7: 30 p.m. Nov. 18.

Parents, patients and medical professionals are welcome.

Information: 301-498-2162.

Tutors needed

FIRN, the Foreign-born Information and Referral Network, has a list of more than 30 clients who would like to be tutored in English.

The clients' circumstances vary, as do their language skills.

Some have transportation; some don't.

Others have studied English in school but need practice speaking the language. Some would like more formal instruction.

It's a pleasant way to volunteer a little time, make new friends and learn about another culture -- sort of a cultural exchange program, without having to leave home.

Adults and teen-agers who need community service credits, should call the network at 410-992-1923.

Illustrating dreams

There are new displays at the Savage Library.

Last month, second-graders at Forest Ridge Elementary wrote poems about their dreams and illustrated their work.

Stop by the library's children's area to view works by Daniel Sheffrin, Billy Howard, Kristin Roos, Kyle Pearce, Morgan Dice, Lukas Brooksby, Victoria Peters, Russell Huang, Megan Wood, Linda Li, Brock McCallister, Alex Brown and Cassandra Holtmann.

Senior news

Savage Senior Center will be closed Tuesday for Veterans Day. But the rest of the week, the center will offer a full schedule of activities, including bingo, a knitting and crochet circle, a nutrition program, a stroke prevention class and an exercise class.

Information: 410-313-5915 .
