ViewA Place To BeElementary EducationTom SweitzerDirectorLeesburg ES 

As we were preparing for the 2021-2022 school year, the Administrative leadership team of Leesburg Elementary was searching for ways to ensure we were prepared to welcome all students and families back to the building. One major concern was the mental health of our students as many of them dealt with several obstacles during the period of virtual learning.

During the Summer of 2021, I was introduced to Mr. Tom Sweitzer, the Creative Director of A Place to Be. We immediately connected about the social and emotional state of students and how coming back into the building could possibly create anxiety. Over the course of the next few weeks we met several times to discuss the possibility of his group providing “free” services for our students.

In September, we began the Creative Coping Experience where Music therapists would engage with Leesburg students on a weekly basis. The collaborative efforts of the Leesburg Administrative team, School Counselor- Mrs. Margaret Fabis, Music teacher- Mrs. Jennifer Steeprow, Instructional Facilitator- Mrs. Rhonda Parvin and the creative team from A Place to Be, led by Mr. Sweitzer led to inclusive Social Emotional Learning (SEL) based interactions for students in our Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE), our Autism K-5 program, and all sections of Second and Fifth grades. We have expanded the exposure of the Creative Coping Experience to our teachers during select staff meetings and our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) during one of their monthly meetings.

It is safe to say that the relationship between Leesburg elementary and A Place to Be supports the 5 C’s as they have shown to be Collaborators to support the growth of students, Creators of a program designed specifically for the needs of Leesburg, Contributors to ever facet of the school and community, Communicators of their great work and resources to their stakeholders, and more importantly seen as trusted adults that afford our students the opportunity to grow as Critical Thinkers that understand the power of music and its impact on our social and emotional development. A Place to Be is truly “Making a difference” in the lives of all that say, “WE ARE…Leesburg”.

ViewAbernethy and Spencer Greenhouse and Garden Center  David LohmanAgricultural SpecialistLincoln ES Lincoln Elementary has participated in a school-business partnership with Abernethy and Spencer since 1994. Over the past 28 years, Abernethy and Spencer has donated free plants to the school.  Abernethy and Spencer has also given a discount to the school when the school purchases plants.  Abernethy and Spencer has worked on the flower beds and landscaping for Lincoln Elementary.  Lincoln Elementary has benefitted from this partnership in many ways.  Abernethy and Spencer has provided plants that we use to decorate the school for music programs and other events.  They have also donated flowers for different school functions.  The staff at Abernethy and Spencer have provided their knowledge regarding the maintenance of Lincoln's flower beds and grounds.  Abernethy and Spencer has benefitted from the partnership by working closely with Lincoln staff members and families. Several Lincoln families and staff members purchase trees, mulch, plants, and other items from Abernethy and Spencer.     Our fifth grade students researched flowers and plants for their cottage classroom and Mr. Lohman and the staff hosted Lincoln students on a field trip during the 2021-2022 school year.   Mr. Lohman and Abernethy and Spencer also provided Lincoln fifth grade students with a tour of his home at Springdale Bed and Breakfast.  This building was a part of the Underground Railroad and students learned about our local Lincoln history during this trip.    Authentic Learning Experiences

ViewAllegra Print * Signs * Design Dulles Mike FlynnSales Representative Heritage HS 

As you drive onto the campus of Heritage High School, you’ll immediately notice the lions. Lions leading the Heritage Pride surround our stadium and are featured on signage. Step through the doors and you’ll see huge wall graphics in our theater lobby, offices, wrestling and weight rooms, and gyms. There are coordinating doors and eye-popping wraps everywhere - and a clean new look replacing old-school trophy cases and tired conference banners. It’s all part of the creative vision of our partner, Allegra. They’ve helped Heritage High School, built in 2002, step in time with newer schools and build a strong brand image to drive sponsorships and school spirit. Thank you to Mike Flynn and team for making us look like a million bucks!
