I was in attendance at the recent Baltimore County PTA Council meeting mentioned by letter writer Laura McDowell, and I can assure you that her description of the meeting is inaccurate and actually a bit offensive ( "Hereford bullies," Feb. 26). Although the number of representatives from high schools across the county was low, I have attended several PTA Council meetings, and low attendance is unfortunately typical. The PTSA at Loch Raven supports the new schedule change for Loch Raven.

BEING A PARENT of an adolescent has never been easy. With their minds and mouths racing, bodies blossoming and emotions sometimes on the edge, it can be difficult knowing how to stay involved.Remembering my own kids in the middle-school years, I vividly recall episodes of them wanting my help without letting go of their growing status as individuals, especially in front of their peers. Saving face was, at times, the most important thing.The joy of my being involved with them in elementary school activities was in the past.

Savvy parents know the scene all too well, especially when you have something important on your schedule."Mom, I don't feel well. My throat hurts."In the middle of breakfast, making lunches and the normal morning confusion, you search for your trusty flashlight. Usually it's not where you normally keep it, and if by some chance it is, the batteries are dead.After a 10-minute search for a good battery, you peer down your child's throat searching for the dreaded white spots. Even though I have many years experience in the mom game, I must admit my fear of trying to peer down kids throats looking for spots.

It was very gratifying to read that the Baltimore County Board of Education will review its rule against allowing craft fairs and other commercial events in schools ("Craft fair' policy to be reviewed," March 20). But so far, the director of physical facilities, Michael Sines, has not provided either sound information or informed opinion to help the board with such a review. For example, while Mr. Sines and his staff cited Harford County as one of several counties that do not sublease to private vendors, he neglected to mention that Harford County provides for fund-raising in schools even by for-profit groups, as long as there is a partnership arrangement with the school, so that both will benefit.

Before she took over as principal of Atholton High School four years ago, Marcy Leonard knew Caryn Lasser's reputation as a hardworking, dedicated parent. Since that time, Lasser, a second-year PTSA president at the school, has exceeded that reputation. "She is the epitome of creating a parent organization that supports the mission of the school," Leonard said. Now others are recognizing Lasser's contributions as well. On April 16, Lasser received the Friends of Education Award, awarded annually by the county school board.

Carl Perkins, in his first year as principal at Howard County's Centennial High after several years as a middle school principal, says he was shocked by what he saw at last month's Back to School Dance. He says he had warned that dancing that simulates a sex act would not be allowed, but more than a half-dozen students were ejected for "freak dancing." That crackdown brought protests from students. And it led some to threaten a boycott of one of high school's memory-making traditions: the homecoming dance, scheduled for tomorrow.
