CREATING A HOLIDAY atmosphere not unlike the town in the movie It's a Wonderful Life, Hampstead officials will throw the switch Friday to illuminate the town park and welcome the season. The park in front of the former Hampstead Elementary School has been transformed into a garden of lighted and moving figures, and the town Christmas tree has been placed on Main Street. At 7 p.m. Friday, the flashing lights and screaming sirens of the firetruck from Hampstead Volunteer Fire Department will signal the arrival of Mayor Christopher M. Nevin and Santa Claus, as they are driven down Main Street from the fire station to the park.

Hampstead Mayor Christopher M. Nevin's refusal to approve plans to expand Spring Garden Elementary surprised some school board members and staff, leaving them to wonder what to do with a school so overcrowded that the first lunch shift begins two hours after pupils walk in the door. The mayor told the Carroll County Board of Education on Tuesday night that he would not sign off on plans to build an addition at the school, effectively dashing the school system's intentions to add six classrooms without expanding the school's cafeteria, library and other common areas.

Many systems are voluntarily implementing the procedure in middle and high schools as well.Pests are no new problem in Maryland schools.Last year alone, an army of carpenter ants attacked a portable classroom at Spring Garden Elementary in Hampstead.
