Spring & Summer Camps at The Original Playhouse
We are so excited for summer! In addition to our veteran teacher, Debbie Smith, we welcome our teacher-intern employees, Erin Lafferty and Kate Sigman. All three are eager to apply their fresh expertise and love for kids. We came up with a variety of content that suits an assortment of age ranges. We’re offering an early start on summer for our preschoolers who are still hungry for “school.” Email EllenatTOP@gmail.com with any questions.
The camps are all afternoon half-days, Monday thru Friday, 12:30-3:30. We do not break for snacks. Arriving at noon or staying till 4 is available for $5/half hour and can be scheduled that week. One week is $200/ child. Discounts applied when registering for two camps or for 2 siblings attending the same week. Full week registration is required to maintain continuity for the group. We cap at 10 kids per camp so every child gets proper attention.
- May 20-24 Counting, Shapes and Colors for ages 3-5: Campers will love our hands-on week at the Playhouse discovering and experimenting with rainbows of color and basic geometry of shapes. We’ll sort, paint, count and categorize, compare and contrast, design and create structures based on these elements. Kids will go home with a colorful or dimensional work each day. The content reaches away from simple identification and digs deeper into integrating all these components together.
- May 28-31 Science in Our Backyard for rising Kindergartners: Campers will be encouraged to take a closer look at their environment. Each day we’ll use our senses to investigate plants and animals, the earth, and weather. We’ll make our discoveries through observations, sharing nonfiction literature, projects that we’ll construct, and free exploration through art. Come explore the world around you-starting at home! *Since this is a 4 day week, you have an option of getting a $40 credit or email firstname.lastname@example.org to process $160 payment.
- June 3-7 Promoting Creativity Using Open-Ended Materials for rising Kindergartners: Campers will have the opportunity to be artists, designers, and engineers as they work with open-ended materials such as clay and paint, drawing tools as well as reusable resources like cloth, foam, foil, wire, leather, or cardboard. Having no pre-determined use, open-ended materials give kids creative freedom and expression. One of our goals is for them to find a sense of independent thinking and risk-taking as they learn there’s no right or wrong way to creativity!
- June 10-14 Zoo-la-Palooza for rising Kindergartners: We love animals and can’t wait to teach your preKindergartner all kinds of fun facts about our planet’s furry friends. Hands-on activities, read-alouds with discussion and discovery learning will keep your kids engaged. A favorite four-legged friends and rider from a local horse farm will make a visit and teach kids about the wonders of horses.
- June 17-21 Author’s Message for rising Kindergartners: Let’s talk about fairy tales and ask some what ifs. Campers will engage in read-aloud experiences that promote literary concepts introduced in Kindergarten as they explore classic fairy tales and story-related activities. Read alouds and discussion bring a story to life as we discover the author’s message behind the story. That message can can be accepted or rejected–even by a preschooler–and that’s one thing we’re striving for, helping to develop a child’s foundation for critical perspective!
- June 24-28 Glow Party! for grades K-2: Does your child have an affinity for science? Do they love things that glow and wonder where the shine comes from? Yes? Well welcome aboard! Enjoy a week of exploring and creating projects that glow and discovering some basic concepts about the chemical reactions that create glow. They’ll get a taste of science with a big flavor of shiny fun!

Potomac Edison Reminds Maryland Customers of Available Assistance Programs to Help with Winter Bills
Williamsport, Md. – With cold weather now affecting the region, financial assistance programs are available for eligible Potomac Edison customers who need help with winter heating bills.
Assistance to qualifying customers is available through the Community Energy Fund, the Maryland Energy Assistance Program, the Electric Universal Service Program, and the Utility Service Protection Program.
- The Community Energy Fund is a needs-based program providing assistance to qualifying residential customers who need emergency help paying their electric bill. The company matches donations from customers 50 cents on each dollar. The distribution of funds is administered by local administering agencies in Potomac Edison’s service territory, including:

o Garrett County Community Action Committee at 301-334-9431
- The Maryland Energy Assistance Program is a federally funded program administered by the Department of Human Services and the Office of Home Energy Programs that helps low-income electric customers pay their electric bills. The program promotes energy conservation, customer financial responsibility and energy independence. To apply for benefits and services customers should apply online at https://mydhrbenefits.dhr.state.md.us, or call the Maryland Department of Human Services at 800-332-6347.
- The Electric Universal Service Program is a state-funded program administered by the Department of Human Services and the Office of Home Energy Programs that helps low-income electric customers pay their electric bills. The program also can help electric customers with arrearage retirement, bill assistance or weatherization.

Potomac Edison residential customers also can manage their electric bills through the Average Payment Plan (APP).

To apply or learn more about other company programs, visit www.firstenergycorp.com/billassist or call 800-686-0011.
In addition to the payment options, Potomac Edison offers a Medical Certification program. Disconnection of electric service resulting from overdue bills can be delayed up to 30 days if it is determined that the loss of electric service would be especially dangerous to the health of a permanent member of a customer’s household. An appropriate health care professional must complete and sign a Medical Certification Form for the eligible customer.
Potomac Edison also offers a program called Third Party Notification where a relative, friend, clergy, or social service agency can be notified along with the customer if electric service is about to be disconnected. The third party is not obligated to pay the overdue bills but can help make payment arrangements for the customer who might have difficulty paying their bill.
The Town is joining the Maryland Municipal League (MML) and other local municipalities’ efforts to raise awareness about substance use and the opioid crisis. The Town will promote the statewide “211” hotline number that connects people to important community treatment and counseling services.
The Town is also making available a publication, the “Parent Toolkit,” produced by Discovery Education, which provides:
- Background information on the facts versus the myths of addiction;
- Information on how to recognize the common signs of potential drug abuse in children and teenagers;
- Recommendations on starting a conversation with children about drug abuse; and
- Suggestions for prevention of abuse and Intervention if abuse occurs.
Substance abuse and the opioid epidemic affect every community. Education is the starting point for a community to combat this public health crisis. Pick up a copy of the “Parent Toolkit” at the Town Office during working hours. Thank you.
