FOR THE past 20 years or so, pupils at Trinity School in Ellicott City have collected toys for Parents and Children Together, or PACT Inc., a Baltimore charity. In past years, the Trinity children took toys to school and placed them in boxes in their homerooms. Then parent volunteers would deliver them to the PACT offices. This year, though, organizer Dee Bumbera decided to do something different. Bumbera, a parent volunteer who has two children at Trinity, decided to include the pupils in the delivery.

An interview with teacher Kathy Hobart, founder of Trinity Book Club at Trinity School in Ellicott City. Why did you start this club at your school? All of my friends were in a club, but I wasn't, and I wanted to start my own. I thought what better place to start one than at school. I sent an e-mail to the faculty on the last day of school in June 2003 and invited everyone to my home to discuss The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd. Ten people showed up. Were you surprised? Yes and no. I know that a lot of teachers read, and I knew that the summer would be a good time to start because they have more time to read for pleasure.

Trinity School's stately 88-year-old campus is getting a $9.2 million overhaul. Officials are breaking ground at the end of the month for a middle school building, scheduled to open by September 2001. It will replace the oldest remaining building on the campus in Ellicott City -- one constructed in 1914 for what was then an Episcopal school for boys. Trinity, an independent Roman Catholic, coeducational school run by the Sisters of Notre Dame, also will build a community center and renovate much of the campus.

Most people would cringe at the thought of having a tooth pulled without the aid of medication to numb the pain. But if you think that would be hard to bear, imagine having a leg amputated without anesthesia. That is the sort of pain some 18th-century citizens endured as they fought diseases and ailments when medicine was in its crudest form. This month, seventh-graders at Trinity School in Ellicott City got a sense of what life was like during the 1700s when Vietnam War veteran and Howard County physician Joseph Gagliardi donned colonial dress and portrayed a fictitious Revolutionary War surgeon, Dr. Alexander Dobbs, to teach the pupils about wartime medicine.

For parent Anita Smith, Howard County's top-ranked public school system could not compete with what she found at Trinity School: Catholic instruction, a caring community and freedom from redistricting worries. "It's a beautiful, serene campus, and you walk there and feel protected. There probably isn't a teacher I don't know or a parent I don't say `hi' to. You feel like everyone cares," said Smith, who has two children at the school. She is among thousands of parents who send children to about three dozen nonpublic schools in Howard County.

Dozens of tie-shaped paper cutouts hung in the room, brightly colored with crayons and markers and scrawled with messages like "We'll never forget you," in memory of Trinity Lutheran School teacher Sam Scott. More than 60 of Scott's sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders gathered in the Joppa school's multipurpose room Thursday afternoon, along with his wife, Debbie, and teachers to honor their friend and mentor who died March 23 at age 59 after a stroke. Scott had an affinity for ties ---- he owned more than 140 ---- but his true enthusiasm was for teaching, his profession for 32 years.
