Every year, Linda Redwine Bell hears the same questions from Fort Meade parents: Where do we register? What academic programs do you offer? What shots do my kids need? With the approaching summer - a busy time for military relocations - Bell, Fort Meade's school liaison, decided that parents needed a clearinghouse of information that would introduce them to everything from mental health services to uniforms to parent-teacher-student associations. Parents will be able to get information on Anne Arundel County schools, particularly those on post, at Fort Meade's first Back-to-School Fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. tomorrow at McGill Training Center on the Army post in western Anne Arundel County.

The calendar says October, but at Piney Orchard Elementary School, the 23rd will read "First Day of School" - for the building, anyway. "We're just delighted," said Janet Fiorina, inaugural president of the new school's PTA. A series of construction delays have troubled the $12 million project in Odenton. The contract called for the school to be completed by July 15. It was supposed to be ready for the opening of county schools in late August. "Normally, we try to have schools that open on time," said Jane W. Beckett, spokeswoman for county public schools.
