Officials from the Town of “Tropicalville” Visit the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors

The Loudoun County Board of Supervisors recently welcomed first grade students from Lincoln Elementary School. The students have been studying government and economics and the visit to a Board of Supervisors' recent business meeting was the culminating activity of their economics unit.

The students formed their own town, called “Tropicalville,” and elected Mayor Olivia Keane and Vice Mayor Matthew Mazzarra.

This is the thirteenth year that Ms. Neely’s class from Lincoln Elementary has visited the Board of Supervisors.

If you’ve lived in the D.C. area for a while, you’ve probably heard of DeMatha, the Catholic boys’ school in Hyattsville, Maryland. And if you have heard of DeMatha, odds are that it’s because of the school’s nationally renowned athletics program, which has boasted such names as legendary basketball coach Morgan Wootten, basketball Hall of Famer Adrian Dantley, NFL Pro Bowler Brian Westbrook, and NFL broadcaster James Brown, to name just a few. To most with a passing familiarity with the school, DeMatha is synonymous with sports. When I told people that I attended DeMatha, I was frequently asked “What sport do you play?” My response of “I don’t play a sport,” was always met by befuddlement and a perfunctory “Then why do you go to DeMatha?”

Girls on the Run 5K: As Described by Leesburg 4th Grader, Logan Quinn

Story by Logan Quinn, Fourth Grader at Sycolin Creek Elementary School.


Today was a really big day for us girls in the Girls on the Run.  We had our 5K race at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, this morning.  Everyone was predicting that it would pour down rain, but I guess Mother Nature changed her mind because the sun was shining in the sky. 

When the race started, it made me want to jump up and down like crazy!  I started running and then since the weather was getting warmer, I was also getting warmer.  I was on my second mile and I thought in my head only one more mile!  Once I finished, I felt AMAZING! 

Arbor Day at Sycolin Creek Elementary School in Leesburg

Arbor Day at Sycolin Creek Elementary School in Leesburg

Some students at Sycolin Creek Elementary in Leesburg helped to celebrate Arbor Day by planting two Kwanzan Cherry Trees in the front of the school on Friday, April 29th. 

The trees were donated and planted by Sunrise landscape + design.  The owner’s children attend Sycolin Creek Elementary School, and each year, Joe Markell and his children---older brother Dillon and twins, Alyssa and Russell---use Arbor Day as a fun occasion to share an important message with classmates: give back to the community and also to the earth. 

Pictured are students in Mrs. Gore’s first grade class, along with Sharon Keegan-Coppels, Principal of Sycolin Creek Elementary School.
