IT'S THAT time of year again when young scholars publicly complain -- and secretly rejoice -- about returning to school.The structure of school days, the opportunity to make new friends, learn new things and make mistakes away from the scrutiny of parents frightens and beckons.School lunches may be acceptable to some, although saying so is an unacceptable breach of the unspoken student code.Murray Hill Middle School will begin its second year this month.Returning staff and students are veterans, who will blend with the year's new crop of students.

It wasn't until Karen Koch saw pictures of her house in a local magazine that she realized how terrific it was. Last spring, she agreed to a photographic house tour for a friend, who was the editor. "I saw the pictures and I thought, 'Damn. It looks good.'" Soon she will see if everybody agrees. Her 1920s four-square in Annapolis' Murray Hill community will be among the 10 homes open Nov. 4 and 5 for the 20th annual Annapolis by Candlelight house tour.

Howard County officials say they are dismayed but determined to improve after learning that for the first time two county schools failed to meet federal test standards two years in a row. Murray Hill and Oakland Mills middle schools were included on a list of 176 poor-performing schools statewide. Any school failing to meet the standards for two consecutive years is classified as"needs improvement." If a school fails five years in a row, the state may take it over. School board Chairman Diane Mikulis said yesterday that the results point out that "middle school is one area where we need to focus more attention."

"There's girls here. I've met people here," joked Charles Bowman, 13. Charles is one of about 270 pupils attending After School at the Hill, which offers social, academic and athletic activities for children at the North Laurel school. "The main focus is to provide them that extra something," said program coordinator Tanya Holmes.
