Week in Review: The American Dream, Back to School and Plant Salvation
Just in case you missed something this week, Patch brings you the week that was in Greater Annapolis.
Patch articles always stay on the site, even when they're not posted as a top story, so we encourage you to explore and read some of the older articles if you're new to Greater Annapolis Patch. We have some more information if you'd like to know more about how to use the Patch site.
And to ensure you don't miss anything, we'll do reviews each week to point out stories of interest you may have missed. Remember that you can sign up to receive daily or weekly updates from Patch. We're also active on Facebook and Twitter, too.
This past week we introduced you to a new effort that is taking place across the entire Patch Universe. Called DisPatches, the effort seeks to chronicle the ever-changing American Dream.
What it means for you, since no two dreams are alike, what are the challenges facing your dream and what you are doing to ensure your American Dream is realized.
Keep an eye out for future DisPatches, and keep your brain turning for stories you may have to share with others.
And to help get you back in the zone for a new school year, Patch brought you several videos speaking with county teachers and administrators about the upcoming year.
We also offered several ways to make it easier for you to get involved in your child's school, regardless of the grade.
Also, for those of you with kids heading off to Hillsmere Elementary, Patch sat down with the school's new assistant principal who will be greeting students on the first day of classes.
Jacqueline Jones, who was previously the assistant principal at Meade High School on Fort Meade, said she is anxious to get back to her elementary roots and eager to start the new year.
And finally, for those you struggling to breathe life back into your landscaping after the scorching heat of the past several week, Patch talked to area gardening experts.
A seemingly universal tip among them? Don't overwater. Resist the urge.
