Clarksville Elementary School has been selected again for national honors in the U.S. Department of Education's elementary school recognition program, school officials announced.
Clarksville Elementary is one of 10 schools nominated to represent the state. The program's purpose is to identify and recognize outstanding public and private elementary schools across the United States.
Schools are identified on the basis of their effectiveness in meeting their goals as well as the standards of quality applicable to elementary schools in general. The school, which also won the award last year, was cited for its parent involvement. More than 100 parents volunteer to work at the school.
3 Courses Approved at College
The Howard Community College Board of Trustees recently approved three new courses for next fall -- microcomputer applications, computer aided design technology and fashion merchandising. More than 100 new students a year are expected to enroll in the courses by 1990.
The new courses are expected to generate 250 new jobs a year at local companies for graduates, offering starting salaries from $18,000 to $22,000, college officials said.
For the fall semester of 1989, community college officials are considering adding seven more associate degree courses, including hospitality management, early childhood development and biotechnology.
