Spring has sprung

March 28, 2011|Kristy Smith | Around Boonsboro

I returned from vacation to find a yard full of daffodils and a sprinkling of snow. Surely, warmer temps are on the way.

History Day win

Saturday was the Middle School Regional Competition at South Hagerstown High School for Maryland History Day — “Debate and Diplomacy in History: Successes, Failures, Consequences.”  

Bo Bodenheimer, Jeremy Hardy and Aidan Thaggard (eighth-grade magnet school students at Boonsboro Middle School) presented a documentary on “The Watergate Scandal: Inside the Public Eye.”

They won in their category and will now move on to the state competition. The students’ social studies teacher is Mr. Lewis.

Way to go, Matthew

Boonsboro Middle School eighth-grader Matthew Scalese will represent the community at the Maryland National Geography Bee state finals on Friday in Catonsville, Md.  

Matthew earned the spot in the competition by placing first in the bee at BMS, and then sitting for the state test.

Of thousands of students taking the exam for the state competition, only 100 earned a chance to compete.  
The winner of the state bee will advance to the national finals in Washington, D.C. The bee is sponsored by the National Geographic Society.  

Topic of program is acupuncture

“Acupuncture … How It Works and Who It Benefits” will be presented by Natasha Baihley Thursday, beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the Boonsboro Free Library.
Acupuncture is a form of medicine that has been in use for more than 2,000 years. Gaining popularity in the U.S., it is a complementary or alternative treatment to many common conditions and diseases.

The program will include a time for questions, as well as a demonstration of acupuncture. Registration is requested at 301-432-5723.
