This week’s news, notes , and nuggets for Loudoun:
- Ashburn student meets the President: Phoebe Lisle wrote a letter to the President on the day of the Sandy Hook shootings. Little did she know it would to turn into a tour of the White House and a visit with the President Obama.
- Pick your school: This past Tuesday the Loudoun County School Board approved a measure to allow parents to choose any school for their child that is not currently at capacity. The biggest change in this policy is that you no longer have to provide a reason for the transfer. The only caveat, you must arrange for transportation on your own.
- Woodgrove HS honors soccer stars: Eight seniors from the State Champion girls soccer team will be honored by the school on January 29 at 4:00pm. Six are headed to play in Division I while the other two are headed to DIII. Congrats girls!
Not really a nugget for this week, but a couple of my recent posts got picked up by the Washington Post’s State of NoVa Blog. Kinda cool!
Have a great weekend, enjoy the dusting of snow!
