They don't squeal like pigs, cluck like chickens or quack like ducks. In fact, you scarcely get a sound out of them unless you pick one up and try your hand at music. That is why teachers at Glenwood Middle School in Howard County are hosting an "instrumental petting zoo" on Saturday, hoping that area youngsters take to a cafeteria filled with orchestra instruments they way they do to barnyard filled with animals. Exposing students as early as first grade to the instruments could spawn an interest in the school's music program when they reach third or fourth grade, said Trish De Orio, strings teacher at Glenwood Middle and Gorman Crossing Elementary schools in Laurel.

Howard County's Glenwood Middle School kids have donated 6,000 books this year to their peers at Harlem Park Elementary School in West Baltimore. And over the course of 10 months, they've granted them many hours of their time. Last week, several of the middle-schoolers even handed the grinning fourth-graders shiny, wrapped gifts of CD players or stuffed animals. But the littler ones in the city - who are less economically privileged - have given the older ones in the county a gift far more valuable: their friendship and admiration.

About 40 pupils at Glenwood Middle School staged another sit-in yesterday on the heels of the dismissal of English teacher Kristine Lockwood, two Glenwood seventh-graders said. Several demonstrations on Lockwood's behalf have been held since Thursday, when the Howard County school board voted not to renew the untenured teacher's contract, then reassigned her to an as-yet-undetermined location. Glenwood pupils have staged sit-ins, made fliers and worn black clothing to school. Parents have held a news conference and are planning other meetings to try to save Lockwood's job. Glenwood Principal Dan Michaels said through a spokeswoman for the county schools yesterday that he was aware of a planned sit-in but that it never materialized.
