Fourth-grader Corey Brooks dipped the small white strip of test paper into the glass vial of cloudy water taken from the school parking lot. "Look at all the sediment in the bottom," said one of his lab partners, Brady Meixsell. A few minutes later, the fourth-grader and his peers at Sandymount Elementary School in Finksburg had determined the water's nitrogen and pH levels, and reasoned that its lack of clarity would mean a drop in the production of algae and zooplankton, minute animal life that floats in water.

SANDYMOUNT Elementary School's fifth-grade class performed a version of Shakespeare's Macbeth last week that offered more entertainment than most audiences would bargain for. It had classic Shakespearean elements such as conniving friends, sword fights, and dramatic death scenes. Witches brewed entrails (cooked spaghetti) and thumbs (hot dogs), tongue of dog (bologna), and an eyeball (fake) in their cauldron and chanted "Double, double, toil and trouble." There also were elaborate costumes and ominous sets.

In the farthest corner of the playground at Sandymount Elementary School in Finksburg, the fifth-graders are in the midst of a soccer game. They're running and pushing, falling and getting up again. They hit the ball with everything they have available - heads, knees, shoulders, elbows. They don't keep score, but that's not the point. They have only 15 minutes, and they're trying to make the most of it. For some youngsters, it's a chance to practice for a community soccer league game that day. But for many, those 15 minutes are the only opportunity for physical activity during the school day. In a growing number of elementary schools, even those 15 minutes of playtime are threatened.

Grasping the flag's edges with the utmost care, the eight solemn boys and girls unfurled the tightly wound fabric from its triangular shape. The children, ranging from kindergarten to fifth grade, turned back one fold and then another - until all 13 folds had been undone. Standing before a crowd of hundreds of pupils, parents, school officials and staff members assembled in the auditorium at Sandymount Elementary in Finksburg, the children waited for their next cue. They had gathered yesterday to honor Lance Cpl. Matthew Snyder, 20, a former Sandymount pupil who died in Iraq in March while serving with the Marines.

When Lorraine Fulton, Carroll County's newest assistant superintendent, ventured into Joy Nuzzo's second-grade class at Sandymount Elementary last week, she discovered the children would be spending the morning studying maps and communities. "That's what I'm studying now, too," a pleasantly surprised Fulton told them. "Because I just moved to Carroll County, I have to constantly look at maps because I don't want to get lost. And I want to be able to get home at the end of the day." Those maps will come in handy as Fulton crisscrosses the county in the days and weeks to come as she honors a personal commitment to visit each of the system's 42 elementary, middle and high schools.

Alex Twery said he reads nearly every day after school. He said he can get through about 50 pages a day - especially if it is a book with lots of action. "It's fun," he said. "You can just think about stuff, and it passes the time." Alex, 8, a third-grader at Sandymount Elementary School, thinks he will have no problem reading four books over the next two months as part of a reading incentive program. His reward will be a free ticket to a Frederick Keys baseball game, if he reaches his goal.
