April Virtue: Kindness
Auction 2019 – Disco, Denim and Diamonds 
A tremendous thank you goes to Mrs. Jennifer Rose and Mrs. Gina Sheedy for a wonderful evening this past Saturday. We grooved to the music, watched a little magic, saw UVA win their game, and also managed to raise some money from all of the wonderful silent auction items this year! We raised around $20,000 for our school! Thank you to all the families who donated time, talent, and treasure to our annual fundraiser.  If you would like to donate to the HERO program to provide family scholarships, update curriculum materials and technology equipment, please see the flyer that went home today in Friday Folders or click here.
Welcome Mrs. Leah Greb
We are happy to announce that Mrs. Leah Greb will be joining our staff next year to teach middle school science. Mrs. Greb holds a Masters in Science Education. She has taught high school science and math. For the last few years she has taught middle school science to a co-op of students in Ashburn. We are excited to have her join our team next year. Mrs. Meyerhofer will continue to teach middle school religion as well as Geometry.
Congratulations Advanced Band
Congratulations to Dr. Little and our Advanced Band members for scoring a Superior rating at the Annual Diocesan Band Festival this past Saturday!
