At Western High School in Baltimore, few students had heard of bocce when coach Mary Hain was putting together a team of players, with and without disabilities, in anticipation of Maryland's first Unified Indoor Bocce State High School Invitational. Senior Thea Chase said she came out for the team thinking that "it was hibachi, some kind of eating contest. " In fact, bocce is a sport that resembles bowling. Ultimately, three freshmen and several seniors, including Chase, joined the team and trained for the interscholastic competition, which pairs students with intellectual and other disabilities with their high school peers.

Waving small blue-and-orange flags -- the school colors -- and swaying to a Ray Charles arrangement of "We Are the World," the Class of 2000 at Morgan State University turned yesterday's 124th commencement into a celebration. University President Earl S. Richardson told a standing-room-only gathering of students, family and faculty that as Morgan has grown from a school of nine students to its current enrollment of about 6,200, what once was a "gateway to opportunity" has become "a stairway to excellence."

Kimberlyn Pratesi, principal of the almost-ready-to-open Dayton Oaks Elementary School, was setting up her office Friday, unpacking cardboard boxes while all around her the sounds of sawing and hammering could be heard. "I plugged in my computer and it works," said Pratesi, who was principal at Lisbon Elementary before taking the helm of the county's newest school in February. She had been working out of a temporary office at Marriotts Ridge High School until moving to Dayton Oaks, and she was glad her computer worked because that would help her communicate with incoming staff members and parents.

Harford school redistricting questioned at meeting More than 100 parents and students packed the Harford County school board meeting last night - many wearing orange Fallston High School colors - to challenge a redistricting proposal that would shift thousands of students in the county'smost populated area. The preliminary proposal redraws boundary lines most significantly around Bel Air, where the new Patterson Mill middle and high school complex is expected to open for the 2007-2008 school year.

THE PRINCIPAL of the new Brooklyn Park Middle School, Brenda Hurbanis, has been busy preparing for its inaugural academic year. She has reached out to the school's future pupils and the community to allow all an opportunity to make their thoughts known and ensure that it assumes a position of importance in Brooklyn Park. And among the first items of business were matters of identity -- choosing a mascot and school colors -- on which she worked with pupils from Park, Brooklyn Park and Belle Grove elementaries and future BPMS students attending Lindale-Brooklyn Park Middle School.

AS ITS members move on to middle school, the fifth-grade class at Clemens Crossing Elementary School has left behind a beautiful legacy - stained-glass windows designed by the pupils themselves. Seven stained-glass panels now frame the school's front doors. Stained-glass artist Donna Darcy worked with the children as an artist-in-residence on the project. Darcy is the owner of the Glass Key, a stained-glass supply store and studio in Jessup. Funded in part by a grant from the Howard County Arts Council, the project cost more than $7,500.

IF STUDENTS ARE as bright as their clothes this year, test scores will take off.With fuchsias and purples, screaming yellows and tumultuous teals, this is not the year for the timid of taste in children's and teen's clothing.Even coats and jackets are besieged with color blocking -- a patchwork of rectangular swatches of hues -- and prints too -- that used to be considered at war with one another. Black accents often prevent a total color collision.This color bonanza applies to boys' as well as girls' wear.
