This fall, the new Marley Middle School opens in Glen Burnie, a $33 million facility equipped with air conditioning, large classrooms, science labs and the latest in educational technology. But this week was a time for current and former pupils to spare a bit of sentiment for the school it will replace - the old Marley Middle School next door, where classes were held for the last time Monday. The building will be demolished this summer. "There are a lot of memories in this place," said Frankie Bianco, who attended Marley Middle in the mid-1960s and who came back Monday with her brother Bill, who attended in the 1970s.

Guidance counselors, a new Marley Middle School and school building repairs were on the wish lists of parents, teachers and students at a hearing last night on Superintendent Carol S. Parham's proposed $549 million budget. The first opportunity for the public to tell the school board what it thinks of the proposed spending plan for next year drew approximately 200 people to the Glen Burnie High School auditorium. The proposed budget, which Parham presented to the board last month, seeks higher salaries for entry-level teachers and signing bonuses for teachers in hard-to-fill areas, such as math, science and special education.

The students from Marley Middle School in Glen Burnie spent about eight hours Thursday and Friday shoring up the ditch's embankments with sand and peat moss, and planting 2,400 shrubs, trees and plants, some of which they had nurtured in their classrooms.

"What do you think?" he asked as he exited the dressing room.His question was directed at his brother, not me. My opinion on back-to-school fashions no longer was appreciated, even though had stopped saying several hours earlier, "You've got to be kidding."Our shopping experience was quickly approaching the fun level of a visit to the dentist. The clothes were baggy, expensive and constructed of fabric that would surely self-destruct if accidentally placed in the dryer."Makes you miss the days of Osh-Kosh and Grrr-animals," sighed another waiting mother.

In the days leading up to tomorrow's start of the new school year, educators around the county put final touches on their classroom decor, worked out scheduling kinks and made sure immunization records were in order. But at Marley Middle School in Glen Burnie, furniture is still being assembled, some textbooks remain stacked in cardboard boxes, and photos and awards line a hallway floor, waiting to be hung. Visible through the many large windows is a pile of rubble, being moved by giant construction cranes, that serves as a reminder of the school's recent past.

This year's version: exercise right wrist by using television remote to bypass commercials featuring Jenny Craig.1985 resolution: read editorial page of newspaper for insight into political and social climate.

YOU NEVER KNOW where Paul Higgins is going to turn up. Over the past year, he's been spotted coaching on Harundale Youth Sports athletic fields, calling out numbers for bingo at the Glen Burnie Carnival, offering insight at Marley Middle School Replacement Committee meetings and testifying before the Board of Education. At the latter, he shows up with a now-familiar trademark - a bottle of discolored water from the Marley Middle School water fountains. He often starts his testimony by asking board members (with whom he's now on a first-name basis)

MARLEY MIDDLE School's library is frequently bustling with pupils doing research for projects or looking for books to read. But the library's latest addition was never intended for pupils. With a grant from the State Department of Education, a Family Resource Center has been established there -- giving parents a place to call their own. A cozy nook within the library, the center has been stocked with about $5,000 in materials, including books, cassettes and videotapes on a wide range of family matters -- with titles such as "Raising a Happy, Confident, Successful Child."
