Clay Griffiths, a fifth-grader at Guilford Elementary School, could see that his friend, Malik Davis, was enjoying himself. So, he asked school counselor Leslie Farmer if he could be part of the Big Brothers Big Sisters program, too. "It looked like they had lots of fun," Clay said. "I wanted to have lots of fun." Farmer told Clay not to get his hopes up. Malik had been with his mentor, Dennis W. Miller, for three years, but finding male volunteers to pair with pupils can be difficult, she said.

Howard County education officials spent about $200,700 last school year to repair damage caused by the severe winter.More than half of the county's elementary, middle and high schools suffered damage, according to a recently released Board of Education report.Most of the repairs were at the county's newer schools, a fact one school official attributed to a "shake-out" period for new buildings.In addition, there was $92,700 in damage from vandalism and theft in the 1993-1994 school year, down from $126,300 in the previous school year.

At least half a dozen Howard County schools were damaged when pipes that froze in last week's sub-zero temperatures thawed and burst, flooding classrooms.Much of the damage was minor and involved drenched carpets and wet furniture, said Thomas Kierzkowski, school facilities director.But three schools -- Mayfield Woods and Burleigh Manor middle schools and Pointers Run Elementary School -- suffered more substantial damage.School officials say they have no cost estimates on the damage, which occurred last week when students and staff were off because of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday and bad weather.

Deep Run Elementary School children have been sorting through pencils, safety pins, paper plates, old jeans and many other household items during the past few weeks, but their activity has nothing to do with spring cleaning. The items will be used today at the Elkridge school for Peaceful Ways to Play Night, which will highlight the theme of peace. It's one of many activities at the school this year seeking to demonstrate ways to get along and avoid violence. It is widely believed that children learn through play and example, and the Peaceful Ways event builds on that concept.

At Deep Run Elementary School, the room where pupils eat their lunches and fidget through assemblies is affectionately called the "cafetorium," a term that accurately describes the dual use of space common in many primary school buildings.But as the Elkridge school's population has grown over the years, Deep Run staff members have had to become even more creative with the building's space, putting virtually every nook and cranny to good use.An 11-by-12-foot conference room has become a classroom for children who are learning to speak English and for others who need help with reading.

The crush of students in the hallways of Clarksville Middle School doesn't prevent Emily Cardy from getting to class on time: She just forces her way right through it."It's like a big mosh pit," said the 13-year-old eighth-grader, referring to the dance area in front of a rock concert stage. "Everyone is just pushing and shoving."As the academic year resumes, the Howard County schools' problems with crowding have returned -- and at many schools they appear to be worsening.Enrollment is climbing faster than schools can be built, and almost every elementary, middle and high school in Howard is suffering the effects -- from crowded hallways and packed lunchrooms to large classes and too few materials.
