The new school year at Broadfording Christian Academy was kicked off with a student fashion show explaining the dress code for middle and high school students. The fashion show was hosted by junior Anne Hunt and high school English teacher Janet Lohr. Students served as models for the fashion show, thus making it a fun way to learn the appropriate and inappropriate choices students make when getting dressed for school each day.

katec@herald-mail.com Washington County Public Schools' dress code was approved by the Board of Education last June and went into effect at the beginning of the school term in August. The systemwide code prohibits clothes such as revealing tops, baggy pants, chained accessories, hats and bandannas. But local students are not the only ones who have to watch what they wear. In France last week, the lower house of parliament approved a bill banning religious apparel - Islamic women's head scarves, Jewish skullcaps and large Christian crosses - from public schools.

"I would like to congratulate Dr. Hardin of Williamsport High School for his firm stand on the deserving dress code at that school. One would hope his efforts becomes a model for all high schools. South High for instance has a number of its own members whose pants need pulled up three notches. Would you as an employer hire a baggy pants group?" "I'm a Lowe's employee and this is to the caller who called in the other day. We do have benches located throughout the store. " "Good evening.

Life is a pendulum. No matter how far either swings to one side, it will eventually get back to center. On clocks, the swing of a pendulum is just counting seconds. And at the end of that second, the pendulum is usually straight to the ground with no leaning to one side or another. In life, sometimes it takes a lot longer to get back to that middle ground ... like days, months, years and decades. In sports, the battle to move the pendulum has always been an ongoing tug-of-war.

chambersburg@herald-mail.com CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Some students may be seeing less of each other when the school year begins, if only because they will be required to wear more, according to officials in the Chambersburg and Tuscarora school districts. Language in the student handbooks for dress guidelines has been changed "to address some issues that we feel have been a problem with students in the past few years," said Eric Michael, assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction for Chambersburg schools.

More workplace experience for students, improved relationships between school officials and other elected officials and close scrutiny of educational programs are some of the priorities of Washington County Board of Education candidate J. Herbert Hardin. Giving students a chance to work a job for a day allows them to begin deciding early what kinds of careers they want to pursue, said Hardin, 63, former principal of Williamsport High School. Hardin, of 19727 Meadowbrook Road, Hagerstown, said he saw the advantages of school-to-work programs while he was an educator.

School rules dress kids down It's back-to-school time, and that means it's time to get dressed. In accordance with the authorities, that is. I bring this up because my Uncle Bob was kind enough to forward me an article from The Morgan Messenger outlining the dress code this year at Berkeley Springs (W.Va.) High School. Since this is my old high school, I am subsequently permitted, by statute, to publicly examine it in great detail. Of course, when I was in school, we didn't have a dress code, because to have one would have deprived teachers of the one good laugh they could count on every new school year.

Tim Rowland Herald-Mail columnist I want all you kids out there at Williamsport High to know that I am behind you 100 percent in fighting the school dress code. One word of warning though. Twenty years from now, when your own kids find your yearbook in some old trunk and start picking you out in all the old photos, you are going to WISH there had been a dress code. I say this because 25 years ago when I was in grade school, the big fashion items were hideous, fringed part-suede, part-vinyl vests that looked like sort of a cross between Daniel Boone and Disco Duck.
