Joshua said it best."You must have great skills to make these. You've made my Christmas more Christmassy," said the 9-year-old student at Villa Maria, a private elementary school in Baltimore County for children with emotional problems.Joshua was expressing his gratitude to a small group of Towson High School teen-agers -- most of them special education students themselves -- who recently presented beautifully handcrafted toys they had made to the younger children.The students gave a total of 40 trucks, baby strollers and cradles -- all made by six students in Towson's wood-shop class.

The month of February saw a wide variety of events being held on the campus of St. Vincent's Villa. The children at St. Vincent's were treated to a wonderful concert early in the month by the Pizzazz group of high school students who wish to share their musical gifts with others. The children sang along with many of the songs, showing their enjoyment of this special event. For the President's Day holiday, high school basketball teams from Mt. St. Joe's and Our Lady of Mt. Carmel came out to run a mini-basketball clinic with the children as part of a day of service organized by Catholic Charities.

The Baltimore school system is preparing to turn control of an alternative school over to a private provider, amid an uproar from community members who say school officials are making decisions secretly and without considering their opinions. Staff members and parents at the Elementary Alternative School, in the building of the former Dr. Lillie M. Jackson Elementary, have received conflicting messages from officials for months about the future of the program. As recently as this week, they believed the school would be sharing space with another run by a private provider.

The small, mop-haired 6-year-old wears glasses that make his eyes look big, but you can't see them much because he keeps his head down a lot. He barely speaks and, when spoken to, slips down in his chair. Sometimes, he slides under the table.That's when one of the therapists at Lansdowne's tiny Therapeutic After School Program -- one of two in Baltimore County -- will say something, very casually, to nudge the boy back into the group of six.School officials say the programs, run by Catholic Charities' Villa Maria organization, produce remarkable improvements in troubled children.

IT WAS pretty much a soft sell when Cornell Dews invited me to speak to students at Furman L. Templeton Elementary School, which is better known in the West Baltimore community where it has existed for decades as P.S. 125. "Since [P.S.] 125 is the very first school I ever attended," I wrote Dews in an e-mail, "I'll be happy to." And it was nice to be back at the school I hadn't set foot in since 1956, the year I entered kindergarten. When Dews told me that Furman Templeton had a choir that would be going on a tour in May, that was a soft sell, too. But before I get to the choir, perhaps I should tell you a little bit more about Furman Templeton.
