The Carroll County Sheriff's Office said a 13-year-old female has been charged with making a false bomb threat in an incident that cleared West Middle School on Tuesday. Just before 11 a.m. school officials contacted the sheriff's office after a student recovered a note that included a threat to "bomb" the Westminster school. The middle school was evacuated while officers from law enforcement agencies inspected the building with explosive detection canine teams. The threat was found to be a hoax, and students were returned to class by noon.

Some say she started a movement of multicultural education in Carroll County, but for Aurora M. Pagulayan her work has been more of a mission. A native of the Philippines, Pagulayan came to the United States in 1967 to earn her master's degree in education at Bucknell University. The next year, she began teaching fourth grade in Carroll at Charles Carroll Elementary in Union Mills. "You can imagine the cultural shock for an educator coming from a place where teachers are revered to a very permissive society where students talk to adults with more freedom and ease," said Pagulayan, 61, who taught for two years at a school in the Philippines before coming to the United States.

Sixth-graders from West Middle School in Carroll County scoured the Bear Branch stream one recent morning in search of aquatic life in the dead of winter. Nathan Grella said the contents of his bucket did not appear promising. "We just got leaves and rocks," said the 12-year-old, one of 57 youngsters spending the week at Outdoor School at Hashawha Environmental Center in Westminster. Closer inspection, however, showed the leaves and rocks were indeed harboring life, information the students will use to size up the stream's health.

Most of Carroll County's 29,004 students will be cool in their air-conditioned classrooms tomorrow, even if typical August temperatures prevail at the start of the 2005-2006 school year. Enrollment has increased by 230 since last year and the county has hired another 212 teachers, bringing the number of employees to 3,383. And nearly all of them will have the comforts of climate control. All but one of the county's 44 school buildings, including its newest and first primary, Parr's Ridge Elementary in Mount Airy, are air-conditioned.

The questions posed yesterday by the West Baltimore Middle School pupils were as simple as, "What would happen if my friend stole a car?" and as profound as, "Are schools really desegregated?" The answers came from the likes of Robert M. Bell, chief judge of the state's highest court; Gilbert A. Holmes, dean of the University of Baltimore law school; and Marcella A. Holland, administrative judge of Baltimore Circuit Court. "Going into classrooms is so important," Bell said. "And it's one of my favorite things to do."

You would have thought there was a rock star entering when Trooper Caitlin McElhenny came into the lunchroom at West Middle School in Westminster. "Trooper Cate, are you gonna sit with us?" yelled one boy from a crowded bench. "I'll be there in a second," said McElhenny, who high-fived another boy. Sixth-graders soon surrounded her, while others begged for her to sit with them. "I ate one nugget at each table yesterday," she said. Another girl tugged at her. "Trooper Caitlin, when are you gonna show us what's on your gun belt?"

They are the keepers of keys, the buffers of floors, the washers of windows. School custodians, those disinfectant- and dust mop-wielding men and women in uniform who spend their nights cleaning up the muddy footprints, trash-strewn hallways and graffiti-marked desks students leave behind, are essential to a school, yet they often get little respect from students. Their job is largely perceived as dirty and unappealing, not to mention totally uncool. "We thought they were stinky," said Mark Schultheis, an eighth-grader at Westminster's West Middle School.
