Ravens linebacker Jameel McClain faced an enthusiastic audience of elementary students in Carroll County. The children fired questions at him, asked him to pose for photos and issued a constant barrage of cheers. After nearly three seasons in the NFL, McClain is used to boisterous and demanding crowds. But the 6-foot-1 football player had come to Manchester Elementary School to talk more about fitness and less about his game. "It is wonderful to see all this purple," McClain said of the Ravens' signature color being worn by most of the grade-schoolers.

Vivienne Sharp is too young to carry with her vivid memories of Sept. 11, 2001, but she had a solemn reaction as she walked in the rain last week amid the long benches of the Pentagon's memorial to those who died that day. "It is a beautiful piece of architecture. It is really sensory," she said. Every one of the benches has the name of a victim carved into it, all 184. "The gravel is crunching when you walk on it and you can hear the water flowing under the benches. " Sharp is 11 years old, and like other students born after 9/11, she'll be among the first to learn about the terrorist attacks as a historic event.

Francis Scott Key High School's auditorium was filled with red, white and blue on Wednesday night, Sept. 13, as the school hosted "Voices of Freedom," a program designed to honor the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 through dance, song, music and readings. Featuring students from Runnymede Elementary, New Windsor Middle and FSK, the event was coordinated by Mickey Brilhart, a visual arts teacher at FSK, and Shellie Rosso, the high school's dance teacher. The program was created after the school's administration approached the fine arts department last year requesting ways to recognize the War of 1812 - and its link to Francis Scott Key, who lived in Carroll County and penned the words by dawn's early light that became our national anthem.

More than 89 percent of students in Carroll passed the tests in every category but eighth-grade math. MSA exams in reading and math are given to students in the third through eighth grades, and the results are ranked in the categories of basic, proficient and advanced — the latter two of which constitute a passing score.

Carroll schoolchildren have a lot to do before school begins Monday. They have clothes, books and school supplies to buy. Bus numbers and classroom schedules to memorize. And, if they're so inclined, prayers to say. At a time when many call on police and government agencies to help solve family and social problems, Carroll County Heritage Foundation wants to let people know they can call on God for solutions. At 6 p.m. tomorrow, the foundation will sponsor its third annual Prayer in the Park, an event billed as a "a night of praise, worship and prayer for all the students of Carroll County as they begin the new school year."
