Arundel High School senior percussionist Alex Musliner readily recalls his last marching band mishap: He dropped a drumstick during a recent performance. Luckily, he carries a spare drumstick for just such an occasion. His marching band teammate, senior percussionist Trevor Jones, also remembers dropping a drumstick during a recent football game. "I tried to take one from him," he said, pointing to Musliner. "Then I actually reached down and picked [his own drumstick] up.

I enjoyed your article regarding the students from Arundel High School who raised funds for a community in Kenya to have computers and books ( "From Quidditch to Kenya," July 31). What a heartwarming story about young people from a public high school who are making a difference. Too often, all we hear about are the troublemakers and thugs in public schools. There are lots of young people out there who are interested in service and deserve recognition as well. But maybe next time this could be front page news instead of running in the Sunrise section that many folks don't have time to read!

Arundel High School sophomore Chloe Hill entered a screening of the motion picture "42" on Thursday indebted to the film's main character, baseball player Jackie Robinson. The film depicts Robinson's struggles and triumphs in becoming the first African-American to play in the major leagues, breaking the national pastime's color barrier on April 15, 1947. "Thanks to him, I'm able to play," said Hill, who is black and plays for Arundel High's junior varsity softball team. Hill was among 300 junior varsity baseball and softball players from all 12 Anne Arundel County public high schools to attend a screening hosted by OriolesREACH and Major League Baseball at Hoyt's West Nursery Cinemas in Linthicum.

Thank heavens that the Anne Arundel County school system is finally looking at starting high school at a time when teenagers are fully awake ("Md. school systems study later start for high schools," March 11). Of course, it is typical that their study fails to consider the benefits to the students of a later start by focusing only on logistics and cost of such a change. If benefits to students had been of interest, they would have changed the start times for high school to a reasonable hour years ago and perhaps both improved student performance and avoided the all too frequently fatal automobile accidents that seem to occur more among student drivers hurrying on their way to school in the morning.

Anne Arundel County school officials moved forward this week with plans to redistrict schools in the Crofton area without provisions for a possible $38 million elementary school in Odenton - which developers had pledged to build if an age-restriction covenant were lifted to allow a new development. On Wednesday, the school board voted to take to a public hearing a plan crafted by a redistricting committee and proposed by Superintendent Kevin Maxwell that would address overcrowding at Nantucket Elementary School in Crofton.

It was hard to tell whether his eyes were actually open when Derek Jones shuffled into his dimly lit kitchen at 5:45 a.m., the smell of bacon in the air. The 16-year-old didn't speak, but took directions from his mother who whispered: "I have your coffee made and your breakfast sandwich ready. " Within minutes he had munched on a banana, downed a cup of java, grabbed his egg bagel and backpack and was in the car on his way to the bus stop with his father. By 6:12 a.m. he was boarding the bus, and by 7:17 a.m., whether ready to learn or not, Jones was in his pre-calculus class at South River High School in Anne Arundel County.

Last year, North County High School in Glen Burnie received $1.7 million in college scholarship offers for graduating seniors, a figure that would draw kudos throughout much of the country but not as much in Anne Arundel County, which is fast becoming known for its students' penchant for garnering financial aid funds that would rival the Maryland Lottery. North County's sum was last among the county's 12 high schools, and less than half that of 11th-place Southern High. The school also finished last in 2009 and had never received more than $2.1 million for scholarships in a single year.
