Courtney Scott is so excited about her new middle school that she has been roaming the halls every day - even though classes do not start until next week. "This is my floor," the 11-year-old seventh-grader said one afternoon this week, gesturing to the classrooms equipped with computers and TV screens at Windsor Mill Middle School. Courtney has spent the past few days helping teachers set up at the school, the first middle school that the county has built in 22 years. At Windsor Mill Middle, administrators hope that high-tech facilities such as radio and television studios, wireless Internet access and televised morning announcements will prepare pupils for the 21st century and engage youngsters during the crucial middle school years.

The dog sniffed 250 lockers in 25 minutes (8:45 to 9:10 a.m.), alerting once. No controlled dangerous substances or tobacco products were found when the locker was searched.

Brandon Lentz was apprehensive about attending Patterson Mill Middle School. First, there was the size of the building: Would he be able to find his way around the 266,476-square-foot building? And the middle school is housed in the same building as the high school: Were high school students really as mean as people said they were? "I was more than a little intimidated my first day of school," said Brandon, 14, of Abingdon. "You see kids on television in high school giving younger kids swirlies" - putting their heads in toilets and flushing - "and stuffing them in their lockers.

A 13-year-old Old Mill Middle School-North pupil told police that a stranger grabbed her, carried her into the woods and tried to sexually assault her yesterday morning, prompting school officials to issue a warning to parents of other young walkers. The incident shook parents and children in the neighborhood, where another Old Mill teen-ager, Lisa Kathleen Haenel, was stabbed to death a decade ago during her morning walk to school. That crime is unsolved. "These things are few and far between, but it only takes one time to end up like little Lisa," said parent Debbie Long, adding that she has never let either of her daughters walk to or from the campus of Old Mill middle and high schools in Millersville.

Together, they sashayed down the catwalk in the empty cafeteria Thursday evening. "You've got to work this runway, girl," Codia Harris, 13, said to Tierra Perry, 12. A half-hour later, they and their peers at Windsor Mill Middle School were doing the walk in formal gowns and business attire, with pop songs such as Beyonce's "Diva" and a shouting, adoring audience as their soundtrack. They did so under the gaze of a pro: McKey Sullivan, winner of the 11th cycle of America's Next Top Model, served as the event's mistress of ceremonies, guiding the hundreds in attendance from one fashion scene to another.

Joshua Parker, a 28-year-old Windsor Mill Middle School teacher in Baltimore County, was named the Maryland Teacher of the Year on Friday night, beating out five other finalists from across the state.

Joshua Paul Parker readily admits he makes his language arts students at Windsor Mill Middle School work hard. "Proficiency is not enough," he said. "They have to shoot for perfection. There is strength in striving. " That attitude embodies Baltimore County's aspirations for its more than 100,000 students and led to Parker's choice as the teacher of the year Monday during the county's 24th annual celebration of its teaching talent. "He lives and breathes the philosophy of our blueprint for progress," said Joe A. Hairston, superintendent of county schools.

Among the first things that hip-hop performer Damon Holley showed the assembled students at Ellicott Mills Middle School was that, as in schoolwork, learning about hip-hop requires undivided attention. Hip-hop artists simply go about getting that attention differently. "Every time you hear me say, 'What's the name of the game?' I want you all to say, 'Pay attention!' And then I want you to remain completely quiet," said Holley of Illstyle and Peace Productions, a Philadelphia-based dance company that staged a high-energy performance, "The History of Hip-Hop," at Ellicott Mills on Thursday.

Cynthia Dillon and Shiney Ann John stood outside Oakland Mills Middle School splattered with whipped cream and couldn't have been happier. The two administrators agreed that a pie-throwing contest - where up to 20 lucky students in each grade level got an opportunity to throw whipped cream pies - was the perfect way to end the school year. Students were picked during a raffle where they traded in tickets they had accumulated for good behavior throughout the year for a chance at a slew of prizes, including the pie-throwing contest.
