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.
