When the earthquake devastated Haiti, students and staff at Hampstead Hill Academy pledged to raise money for relief efforts. Fourth-grade teacher Jonathan Swann went further, vowing to shave his head if the school could raise $2,500. The school did better than that, raising $3,500 for the American Red Cross. Friday was the payoff, so to speak, as school secretary Cynthia Warner shaves Swann's head to the shouts and cheers of the children, right. Inset, Swann checks out his new 'do. For a video of the event, go to baltimoresun.

One afternoon, a group of middle-schoolers at the Stadium School in Waverly huddled around plates of steaming vegetables. These were servings of North African stew with harissa sauce, not the usual preteen fare. Yet the students, eight girls and five boys, took generous portions of the mixture of chickpeas, carrots, tomatoes, beans, sweet potatoes, green peppers, onions, cinnamon, cumin and paprika. They were eating the results of their classwork. They had spent the last 40 minutes or so chopping vegetables, cooking and doing a little dancing.

Yesterday morning, by my measure a symphony of a morning until I picked up The Sun, this newspaper's editorial page carried letters from a Mr. Ed Rutkowski and a Mr. John Huppert, chastising me for describing their East Baltimore neighborhood in accurate terms.Two weeks ago, I wrote of troubles around Patterson Park, which is not exactly news to all those familiar with Hampstead Hill Middle School, or the Pedro Lugo baseball bat tragedy, or people cringing in their homes from such behavior, all of which Mr. Rutkowski and Mr. Huppert wish nobody would mention in public.

Reports of an intruder armed with a long-barreled gun forced officials to evacuate about 1,000 students from Hampstead Hill Middle School in East Baltimore yesterday.No gunshots or injuries were reported and it is unclear why the man -- who apparently escaped during the evacuation -- was wandering around the building."He didn't point [the weapon] at anybody, and he didn't apparently threaten anyone," said Kevin Harahan, principal of Hampstead Hill. At one point, a school police officer chased the man down a hallway but lost him.Students were dismissed nearly an hour early while a police quick-response team in full tactical uniforms climbed a fire escape to the roof, then did a floor-by-floor search of the five-story building at 101 S. Ellwood Ave.L The officers also combed a basement and a subbasement level.

A recent letter to the Sun by Martin K. Van Horn ("PBS documentary on War of 1812 was flawed," Oct. 14) and an article by Fred Rasmussen ("War of 1812 turned at North Point," Oct. 23) complained that PBS's documentary on the War of 1812 failed to cover the Battle of North Point, "one of the few land battles the Americans won against the British. " I agree the television program, which was produced in Buffalo and Toronto, emphasized the Great Lakes Theater of War to the detriment of the Chesapeake Campaign.

DENNIS HINKLE wrote three angry letters to The Sun -- but never mailed one.Hinkle, dean of education at Towson University, thought the newspaper's "Reading by 9" series unfairly attacked his teacher education program, branding it a beacon of "whole language" instruction devoid of any genuine basis in phonics."

At first glance, the two schools couldn't be more different.Baltimore Polytechnic Institute is a showcase, drawing high school students from throughout the city for a curriculum rich in math, science and engineering.Hampstead Hill Middle School, near Patterson Park, struggles with poor facilities, scant resources and the challenge of a diverse student body.Between them lies the full range of public education in Baltimore. But these schools have more in common than meets the eye.In recent years, Poly has been stung by claims that its standards are slipping, claims that have prodded its high-powered alumni into action.
