CHESAPEAKE BAY Middle School has kicked off its latest reading incentive contest for pupils. The Read Across America contest, which began last week and runs through the month, rewards pupils for individual efforts and recognizes classroom teams that read the most books. "We found that our students had slacked off a little on their independent reading at home," said Peg Sange, reading resource teacher. "Celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday last Friday was a great excuse for a new contest. We just expanded the Read Across America Day concept a little."

About 110 sixth- and seventh-graders at Chesapeake Bay Middle School have the option of continuing at their current school until high school under a plan approved by the Anne Arundel County school board. The board voted to approve the superintendent's redistricting plan, which would return middle-schoolers from the Riviera Beach Elementary School area to George Fox Middle School but give sixth- and seventh-graders at Chesapeake Bay the option of remaining at the school. The board voted for the school department to provide transportation, despite protests from some board members over spending more money when the school department has an estimated $54 million shortfall.

A school only for sixth-graders in the Mountain Road corridor would be the best solution to crowding problems at George Fox Middle School, parents told the Anne Arundel County school board at a hearing last night.Parents said they recognized that having all sixth-graders from Fox and Chesapeake Bay Middle School grouped together at the Chesapeake building is probably the most expensive of the four suggested solutions. But they said it would be be the least painful for their children because the students would be disrupted for only one year and not three years.

On a cloudy, starting-to-feel-like-fall day this week, about a dozen sixth-graders from Chesapeake Bay Middle School waded thigh-deep into the Indian Creek branch of the Severn River. Though they were wearing rubber boots, their clothes were soaked at least to their waists. And they didn't seem to mind. "I think something just swam over my foot," said Carly Bair, 11, smiling. Nearby, several students were pulling a large seine along the water, capturing tiny bay anchovies and even a crab, and placing their treasures in a plastic container filled with water.

IT WAS A hard-fought battle for the St. Jane Knights girls under-13 soccer team at the Got Milk? 3v3 Soccer Shootout last month in Florida. But when the final whistle was blown, the Pasadena girls had captured the national championship in their division. They soon had milk mustaches to go along with their title. The Got Milk? 3-on-3 tournament requires players to combine many offensive and defensive positions that would usually be covered by a much larger team in a regular soccer game.

Johnson is always ready when pupils hit her with the inevitable question after a lesson about DNA, chemistry or the metric system: "Mrs. Johnson, why do we have to know this stuff?"The veteran teacher has an answer, because she always has another question in the back of her mind."How do you teach what your county says and make it meaningful and relevant for students?" asked Johnson, 52, who has taught science at Pasadena's Chesapeake Bay Middle School for most of her two decades in the Anne Arundel public school system.

Only 36 of 200 eligible George Fox Middle School students are opting to switch to Chesapeake Bay Middle School next year.To blunt community outcry over the Pasadena redistricting plan, the Anne Arundel County school board decided last month to give current sixth- and seventh-graders at crowded George Fox a choice whether to go to Chesapeake Bay.The original plan was to pull out 270 Fox students starting inAugust. Only about half that many will be going to Chesapeake. Current fifth-graders will get no choice where they go.Opposition to the redistricting plan was so vehement this spring that "I'm surprised any of them are going," Janet Bury, the school board member whose district includes Pasadena, said of those choosing to switch.
