Three pots of gumbo are simmering on a stove in the family and consumer science classroom at Patuxent Valley Middle School. Some pupils are cutting up strawberries and apples for fruit salad; others are filling pitchers with pink lemonade and iced tea. Loaves of bread are warming in one oven, aluminum pans of fettuccine Alfredo take up another. "You better not have any chewing gum in your mouth," teacher Eileen Reid bellows to no one in particular.

THE HAMMOND HIGH Boosters gratefully acknowledge the hours of time and the expertise given by parents and friends of the school. Without the dedicated efforts of these many volunteers, the school could not offer as rich an experience to its students.Of course, Hammond is particularly lucky in having parent volunteers. There are so many, their names have to be spread over several columns or the column would read like a phone directory.So here's a tip of the ol' hat to Becky Griffin, Sue Hanson, Maria Kyritsopoulos, Cindy Jones, Peter Jones, Mutsuko Kennerly, Marge Lally and Jeanette Lazarofsky.
