Students will learn laws of science at show

Sharpsburg Elementary School will be the setting for the Maryland Science Center's Traveling Science Show on Tuesday, Nov. 26, at 1:10 p.m.

The show explores how the laws of physics and scientific methods influence everyday actions.

Students and teachers will view an assortment of demonstrations. Volunteers will assist the trained presenters to make the program fun and educational.

Communication between students, parents focus of night

MIDDLETOWN, Md. - Middletown Middle School sixth-graders and their parents will be treated to a free chicken dinner Wednesday, followed by the school's "community chat."

After introductions and a parent-teen activity, parents will hear an expert speak about and demonstrate ways to better communicate with their teens.


In a separate area of the school, sixth-grade students will be entertained by peer mediators who have prepared skits to demonstrate ways teens can communicate with parents, teachers and peers.

The evening begins at 5:30 p.m. with dinner, and workshops following from 6:30 to 7:45. There will be child care for elementary-age siblings.

At 7:45 p.m. door prizes will be awarded. The event is sponsored by the Frederick County Public Schools Community Service Division, the Middletown Parent Teacher Association and the Inter-agency Committee on Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention and Parenting.

To obtain more information, call Frederick County Public Schools Health Specialist Helen Monk at 1-301-696-6904.
