Shortly after sunrise yesterday, 16-year-old Tiffany Roberson was up, dressed and filling green and white balloons with helium at Arundel High School in Gambrills to welcome back her fellow students. Her summer had ended a few hours earlier. The student government president was up until 3 a.m. finishing homework for her Advanced Placement English class. "But then I was up again at 4 because I was excited about school," the senior said. Roberson was among the more than 75,000 students who started a new year fueled by anticipation and adrenaline in Anne Arundel County, one of five area jurisdictions that started classes yesterday.

Only one problem: ABC never mentioned the school or its home district, Anne Arundel County, by name."Fifteen seconds of my face," laughs one teacher, "but not my 15 minutes of fame."

A BIG ELECTION IS SET tomorrow at Whittier Elementary School in Frederick. And later in the spring at Jessup Elementary, in Anne Arundel County, and at dozens of other schools across Maryland. About 40,000 Maryland kids are expected to cast their ballots in libraries and classrooms for the 1999-2000 Black-Eyed Susan Book Awards, a contest sponsored by the state's school librarians, known these days as media specialists. The plebiscite, in its ninth year, is all about books, and the issues in the campaign are the things kids look for in literature: intriguing plots, adventure, mystery, mysticism, humor and "coolness," an ineffable quality known only to the young.

A shift in educational philosophy is prompting general and potentially costly remodeling of schools across the region. Many teachers, parents and students want walls.Throughout the late 1960s and early '70s, the construction of open classrooms took hold in schools, the idea being that about 100 students and their three or four teachers would mingle, learning together and sharing ideas and lesson plans.What happened instead was that many children were distracted by students in other classes and teachers going over unrelated work a few feet away.

School Board Must Back VolunteerismAs you know, during the last school year, the Jessup community has attempted to work with the Board of Education (( to renovate Jessup Elementary School through the use of volunteers and massive business partnerships.The renovation included a sprinkler system, walls to eliminate an antiquated "open classroom" concept, new carpet, a "state of the art" computer lab and air conditioning the gym and cafeteria.This project would have led the way in showing other communities that, with their involvement, they could not only take an active part in improving their children's learning environment but also save the county an enormous amount of taxpayers' dollars.
