The last lunch table had been wiped clean and the recess stampede begun when Michael Woods, a tall fourth-grader, grabbed his coat and headed for the door. The sound of a falling coin stopped him short. As the footfalls around him quieted, his eyes followed a quarter as it rolled under two lunch tables, did a loop-de-loop into the air and skidded 15 feet to land under a chair. He ran over to scoop it up and place it in the outstretched hand of its owner, a fellow straggler rushing to join his friends on the playground.

"Arthur is a third-grade student with lots of friends. In the book 'Arthur Writes a Story' by Marc Brown, Arthur is afraid that his friends in his class won't like the story about his dog, Pal.

THE SAVAGE Community Association transformed Baldwin Commons into an English garden, with mums and pansies arrayed around Carroll Baldwin Hall, on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1. Thanks to the support of Harry Hearn, who runs Wincopia Farms - a local wholesale nursery - the association had hundreds of plants for sale at the event. Hearn delivered the plants in the morning and helped set up the flowers. It's the third time that Hearn and the association have put on a plant sale, and it seems as though it will become a tradition.

Shalini Uttamsingh has watched International Night at Fulton Elementary School grow from an event that featured a handful of countries and attracted a couple of hundred people last year, to a major production spotlighting 20 countries and drawing a crowd of about 500. The growth of the event over just two years also serves as a reflection of the shift in the ethnic diversity among the county's student population. "You got an insider's view to the culture," said Uttamsingh, a parent and co-organizer of the event.

ALL THE world's a stage," wrote William Shakespeare, and Crystal Brown seems to take that notion literally. The traveling storyteller visits schools in the region and turns classrooms into makeshift stages and pupils into performers, if only temporarily. The term storyteller does not adequately describe what Brown does. She is a combination story director-producer-choreographer, using fairy tales as backdrops to gently nudge children into brief and unexpected roles as kings, princesses, animals and trees.
