Ancient history is just, well, "old news" to young middle school students. But George Fox Middle School teachers, staff, parents and older students are making history come alive (at least for a day) for sixth-graders studying ancient Greece.On Thursday, 350 toga-clad sixth grade students will begin their journey back in time to take part in the Greek Olympiad program. After being divided into 10 groups, representing Greek city-states, students will become ancient Greek citizens. During the morning, they'll learn about Greek customs, language, culture, drama, mathematical discoveries, science, dance, art, food and leisure activities.

BEING A PARENT of an adolescent has never been easy. With their minds and mouths racing, bodies blossoming and emotions sometimes on the edge, it can be difficult knowing how to stay involved.Remembering my own kids in the middle-school years, I vividly recall episodes of them wanting my help without letting go of their growing status as individuals, especially in front of their peers.

School planning demands a view of 'big picture'Regarding the Jane Ness property, we have a problem with this development and it's high time we dealt with the adequate facilities up front.The number one problem I have with this development is Solley Road one of the worst roads in Anne Arundel County. Solley can not accommodate the amount of traffic this development will yield.The road must be widened and lanes added. The issue of bus safety is also becoming a very serious problem on Solley Road.
