Ashburn, Virginia, October 13, 2010 -- Stone Bridge High School is hosting our sixth annual DECA Powder Puff Game, a junior vs. senior girls flag football game.  This popular homecoming event is being held on October 18, 2010.  The stands will be flooded with pink and the majority of the student body will be present.  We are raising money for the Loudoun Breast Health Network (LBHN) by selling pink t-shirts, neon sunglasses, raffle tickets for an autographed football signed by the 2010 Washington Redskins and $3 tickets to the game.  One hundred percent of the proceeds from this event will go to the LBHN.

This is the second year we have donated to Loudoun Breast Health Network, a non-profit, community based organization located in Loudoun County.  They support women diagnosed with Breast Cancer in Loudoun County.

In 2011, Loudoun County Public Schools Will Resume Before Labor Day

Yesterday, the Loudoun County School Board adopted a 2011-2012 calendar that provides for Loudoun County Public Schools to begin the week before Labor Day.

In September, Dr. Ed Hatrick, Superintendent for Loudoun County Public Schools, told School Board members that he intended to open schools before Labor Day for the 2011-2012 school year. And after seeking parent, student, and staff input, the School Board voted unanimously to adopt a new calendar. As a result, students will begin the new school year on August 28, 2011, and conclude the school year on June 8, 2012. They will have typical Thanksgiving, winter, and spring breaks.
