Holding a 3-inch-tall Tolkien-inspired wizard named Schmandalf that she fashioned out of modeling clay, Olivia Hatcher set about the painstaking process of creating a stop-motion film for her summer camp class. Using one of Maryvale Preparatory School's digital single-lens reflex cameras affixed to a tripod -- instead of holding a camera phone or a “point-and-shoot” with no adjustable settings -- the fifth-grader from Towson posed and re-posed Schmandalf to simulate human movements while photographing the figurine a couple hundred times between adjustments.

Lauren Bull had settled in for an hour in study hall when she realized she had forgotten the novel assigned in her English class. Rather than race back to her locker, the Maryvale Preparatory School sophomore quickly located "Pride and Prejudice" on one of the school library's iPads. Students have cheered the devices, added this year as the all-girls Catholic school in Baltimore County expanded its technology offerings. When students return from their summer vacation this year, each will be equipped with an iPad to use during classes and for homework.

They have asked a date, found the perfect dress, matched the shoes and made the appointments for hair and nails. But the seniors and their parents at Maryvale Preparatory School must add one more thing to their to-do list before prom night Friday. The all-girls Catholic school in Brooklandville established an unusual pre-prom tradition 26 years ago, when it made an alcohol education program mandatory for students and parents. "Because of all the things going on related to drinking, including a horrific accident, we decided then that we had to do something," said Sister Shawn Marie Maguire, who has overseen the school since 1981.

Sister Shawn Marie Maguire has held numerous titles in her nearly 35 years at Maryvale Preparatory School, but ask any student, teacher or parent and the most used description is "beloved. " "She is that truly rare individual who possesses amazing qualities that inspire her students," said Dr. Victor Ferrans, a psychiatrist whose daughter Morgan is finishing her freshman year this week. "Everyone loves her for a kindness and gentleness that is so rare these days. " The woman who knows every student — 361 in grades six through 12 — and parent by name is retiring from the all-girls Catholic school in Brooklandville this year after serving for more than half its history.
