Displaced pupils will return to their classrooms at Hawthorne Elementary School on Jan. 9, three months after an asbestos accident shut the Middle River facility and officials decided to relocate the children to two other schools. The closing kept Hawthorne's nearly 500 pupils out of class for two weeks while officials figured out what to do about the Kingston Road building, where a renovation project was under way on nights and weekends. The children were split between two schools - the youngest attended nearby Middlesex Elementary, while the older ones were bused to Battle Grove Elementary, eight miles away - so that construction crews could continue renovation work at the 1950s-era building without further risk to pupils.

In February last year, Hawthorne Elementary School teachers Bonnie Mallon and Dawn Kerner decided that the prickly hawthorn bushes that lined the front walkway didn't provide the appropriate welcome. Instead, the pair envisioned a flower garden to be built by their 21 special-needs pupils as an extracurricular project that would beautify the Middle River school and give the children a feeling of accomplishment. The project was under way last fall when Kerner had to cancel it. Mallon had been stricken with a brain tumor and was receiving chemotherapy that left her too weak to oversee the third-grade horticulturists.

After more than 20 years in TV and feature films, Baltimore native Jada Pinkett Smith could hardly be blamed if she wanted to slow down and ease back a bit. It seems as if the Baltimore School for the Arts graduate has been working nonstop on the national stage since her breakthrough TV debut in 1991 as a member of the cast of Bill Cosby's hit NBC series, "A Different World. " But at 39, the wife of actor Will Smith and mother of two children — who are already launched on their own show-biz careers — sounds like she is pushing herself harder than ever.

When Karen Berends was a youngster growing up in Hawthorne, she never thought that she would one day raise her child in the same house she was raised in. But fate played out and she couldn't be happier. "The opportunity came for me to move in, and I thought I would rent for a while," Berends said, recalling that she really didn't think she would buy the home she grew up in. "It just worked out that my mom was going to sell and I was looking for a house," said Berends. "It's just me and my son, so it's plenty of room for the two of us. It's perfect."

Nikki Charlebois was back yesterday, her three little girls in tow, finally able to eat breakfast with them in the cafeteria again, as had been their daily ritual for so long. So was Erin Thomas, a third-grader who had spent the past three months apart from the rest of her classmates -- sent in all the uncertainty to a school 18 miles away, near her mom's waitress job. So, too, was Principal Barbara Clark, with the CD player she uses to usher in each day with a "musical moment." On this morning it belted out "We Are Family" because, she said, they are. Yesterday, more than three months after asbestos contamination forced the closure of Hawthorne Elementary School, the Middle River campus was finally open for the business of education, much to the relief of nearly everyone who set their damp feet inside.

Each week The Sun's John McIntyre presents a moderately obscure but evocative word with which you may not be familiar — another brick to add to the wall of your working vocabulary.. This week's word: SCAPEGRACE Sometimes English, instead of adapting from the Latin or Greek, reverts to its Germanic heritage of fusing words together. Scapegrace combines scape , an archaic variant of escape , with grace , in the theological sense. A scapegrace is literally a person who has escaped the grace of God. In its milder applications, a scapegrace is mischievous and wayward, especially in references to a child or young person.

Kyra Sedgwick, Holly Hunter, Angela Lansbury - Baltimore native Jada Pinkett Smith is about to join some pretty exclusive company when her new weekly TV series, HawthoRNe, debuts Tuesday on TNT. Like those other actresses who made their reputations in feature films, she is coming to TV as both star and executive producer of a series designed to showcase her talents. The trade-off is a simple one: The TV network or cable channel gets a film-caliber star who will attract new viewers, and the star gets a steady paycheck and control of the material in which she appears.
