Belmont Station has embarked on a new relationship with 3D Herndon to support deeper learning. This new relationship involves connecting our students with experts and experiences in the field of 3D printing including museums, archeologists and scientists. Through these connections, our project-based learning experiences have become richer. 3D Herndon employees have already participated in hands-on lessons with our 3rd and 4th-grade teachers and students. This partnership supports Belmont Station’s mission of empowering all individuals to think critically, communicate, collaborate, create, and contribute in order to make a positive impact on the environment and our community.
A&A Heating and Air Conditioning is an exceptionally generous supporter of Tuscarora High School. In addition to providing monetary donations, they also donate their resources and time to the school. While it is true that some of their donations produce advertising revenue for their business, many of their kind deeds and generous donations are “quiet” donations that are solely intended to help Tuscarora community members in need. Some recent examples of their generosity include One to the World Project Support. Last spring, the THS leadership class hosted a fundraiser involving the Harlem Wizards, which raised $2,900 for “Team Mathias”. A&A Heating and Air Conditioning provided the top level of sponsorship for this event. Mrs. Amado from A&A worked directly with the THS Leadership students to share her professional contacts. Mrs. Amado also met with the students on a regular basis and mentored them regarding how to approach businesses for sponsorship donations. The students realized tremendous success as a result of Mrs. Amado’s guidance. They also learned valuable sales skills along the way.
A&A has also provided numerous monetary donations in the past few years to include a $5,000 sponsorship of the football field scoreboard and numerous booster organization donations, including a $500 donation to the Theater Boosters. They provide ongoing support of the band, DECA, and other THS clubs through the purchase of fundraiser items and continual purchase of ad space for school events. They have also provided the following: time/equipment donations - donation of company trucks and drivers for mulch delivery for the mulch fundraiser; sale of raffle tickets for AVID, raising $348; “Quiet” Donations - after a Tuscarora family lost their mother to cancer and experienced financial difficulty, A&A donated and installed a furnace and air conditioning unit in the family home; when a Smart’s Mill Middle School family lost their father to cancer and experienced financial difficulty, A&A donated and installed a furnace and air conditioning unit in the family home.
The All Pro Dad’s Belmont Station Chapter community partnership has been established since 2015. This group has been meeting for breakfast in the school library once a month to focus on a variety of topics kids face in their everyday lives. This opportunity is provided for dads to spend meaningful time with their children and to strengthen their relationship as well as benefit the entire Belmont Station School community. All Pro Dads supports dads in making meaningful connections with their children which, in turn, fosters confidence, independence, and perseverance - all qualities necessary to be a successful student and member of today’s society.
The three goals of the Belmont Station All Pro Dads chapter are:
By focusing on these goals during intentional conversations, students are encouraged to take what they learn and apply it during the school day while building relationships with others and embracing inclusive practices. This partnership is mutually beneficial in helping our students do their personal BeST each and every day and live up to our school motto…..shining stars today, brilliant leaders tomorrow.
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!
Ms. Althouse came in and devoted a whole day to our eighth-grade art classes to help teach as well as create cups using slab techniques. These cups would then be available for purchase at our Annual "Empty Cup Dinner." All the funds raised from the cup purchases were donated to the Western Loudoun Food Pantry in Lovettsville, which helps families in our community. The cups sold are used as a reminder of the empty bowls and cups around the world.
American Braces and Smile Center in Ashburn is sponsoring the Eagle Ridge Middle School 8th-grade picnic in June of this year for over 400 8th-grade students. This strong commitment provides an afternoon of meals, fun, and excitement as our 8th-grade students conclude their school year. The picnic sends the students off in a special way. We are very grateful for the support of Dr. Hessamfar and the team at American Braces and Smile Center.

In 2013, Arcola Bible Church requested to use our school space for worship and Sunday school. ABC uses our space from 8:30 - 1:00 on Sundays. They soon asked how they could help our teachers and school. Volunteers from ABC have supported us by helping to install our gardens which included the clearing of rock and digging plots. They have planted trees and bushes around the school. They assembled sheds that house Science curriculum materials. Volunteers from ABC copy and laminate for Arcola teachers on a weekly basis. They also assist with the monthly design and creation of bulletin boards. ABC has been very generous throughout the years and has provided special treats for the entire staff to include coffee and breakfast the first day of school and lunches during the year.
Our partnership with Ashburn Orthodontics began in the spring of 2015. Dr. Kortam has been incredibly supportive of our needs at Eagle Ridge Middle School. She has helped us welcome our incoming 6th graders every year with an exciting ice cream social and a goody bag for each student. At the beginning of the school year, she provides each of our students and staff with a magnetic school calendar as a welcome gift. Every year, Ashburn Orthodontics joins us in welcoming our entire school community during our Back to School Bash, funding and operating our spirit wear hairspray station. To celebrate and motivate our students, Ashburn Orthodontics donates gift cards as incentives for our Student of the Month program throughout each school year. Dr. Kortam reaches out to the school to understand what our needs are and how Ashburn Orthodontics can further assist our school community. Dr. Kortam is a committed partner and we look forward to a continued strong relationship with the Ashburn Orthodontics team!
