This edition of the Directory, beyond listing the names and numbers o~ community resid- ents, has been expanded ~o includeEMERGENCY telephone numbers as well as listings of services, both public and private, which are available to everyone within Cabin John and Montgomery County. Since We began working on this direc- tory in April 1974, an effort has been made to contact every household in the community both by going door-to-door and by phone to find out if and how people wish to be listed. Still, some people – and some services – mayhave been overlooked. I f , when you re- ceive your Directory, you note omissions or mistakes, please contact the Association’s chairperson of Membership, Andy Rice (229- 7367) or Cappis l;organ (320,3269). as a supPle- ment to the Directory may, depending on the response and need, eventually be undertaken. Thanks are due to the many people who helped pull this Directory together by visit- ing neighbors, maklng calls, suggesting ser- vices to be included, checking text and spif- fing up presentation° Particular thanks is due to the Cabin John Citizens Association for agreeing to expend much of its treasury to make this service possible. Anyone wish- ing to contribute $2.00 – or any amount – to support this effort should send a check tol Andy Rice, Treasurer Cabin John Citizens Association 6517 80th St. Cabin John, ~do 20731 CAR POOLING Does anyone need to have transport- ation home from Bannockhlrn’s after school activities?

CABIN JOHN FOUR YEAR OLD SCHOCL The success of theCabin John Four Year Old School this year is due to a large degree to the teacher, Annette Davis. ~e feel very fortunate to have been able to hire Mrs. Davis. Mrs. Davis, who comes from Cal- ifornia, lives in Carderock with her husband and their four children (ages 9-16 years). Since receiving her Master of Arts in Educa- tion, Mrs. Davis has had experience in teach- ing second grade and in assisting in m~ny co-operative nursery schools. She has also been a volunteer in the Montgomery County Public Schools. Mrs. Davis Writes thats The pre-school should be a place of exploration, experimentation, and discovery, where the child learns more about himself, his environment, his family, and his community° The most important objective of the pre-school should bet. foster a positive feelimg i~. the child about himself, about his world, and about school° Those of uswho are involved with the program this year feel that Mrs. Davis is truly living up to her objective. – Betsy Haas .

MORE ON VANDALISM On reading last month’s article on vandalism, it seemed to me that the one element I forgot to mention was the parents of the kids who vandalize the neighborhood. Do they feel that the kids are beyond their control? Help is available through organi- zations such as Parents Without Partners, the Department of Recreation, Boys Clubs, and Scouting which can help each one find his own direction. Vandalism is not confined to this com- munity, as Potomac has had a great deal of the trouble, and Bannockburn Elementary School has been vandalized rather severely lately.

Because of several questions ai~ about the form, we thought we would make things a little clearer. At Bannockburn, only one conference is scheduled by the school each yearo These are held from now until February. Of course, a~v parent with a special concern about his child’s pro- gress at the school can schedule a con- ference with a teacher, at any time. The form is used to schedule one confer- ence between the parent, a teacher, and, if desired, the student. This conference is frequently used to show the parent and student what areas in a subject are successful for the student5 and what need more work. They can last 30 minutes or less, depending on how much there is to be discussed~ Frequently the parents conference alone with the teacher for the first I0 minutes, and include the child in the last half. For us in Cabin John, most of the teachers at Bannockburn areunfamiliar. This scheduled conference is an opportunity to begin to get toknow the teachers and the program a little better. If you haven’t sentback the conference form, or have changed your mind and now want to sched- ule a conference, call the school office at 229-3097.
