DONUTS WITH DADS
Thank you to everyone who joined us this morning for some colossal donuts, coffee, juice, and – of course – good conversation. We counted 538 in attendance – an increase over last year’s total of 505. We hope that everyone had a good time, because we certainly did! Thanks to our Parent Liaison, Donna Lineburger, and our Media Specialists, Sandra Hood and Laura Haft, for organizing and hosting Donuts With Dads.
FARMWELL’S GIVING TREE
Farmwell is pleased to offer a Giving Tree, to assist families in need this season. Students and parents may visit the Giving Tree in the Farmwell library, select an ornament, fill in the form near the tree, and take the ornament with you. (New this year is our virtual giving tree; click HERE to select an item.)
After purchasing the item, attach the paper ornament (or code from the virtual Giving tree) to the UNWRAPPED item and return it to the big box in the school library. All gifts need to be returned to the school by Monday, December 11. All gifts go to children of Farmwell Station families. If you have any questions, please contact Karen at email@example.com or Donna at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your generosity!
YEARBOOKS AVAILABLE ONLINE
Even though the in-person sale has ended for the yearbook this year, students can still order online; just click HERE, or see the link at the bottom of this message, or on the Farmwell website. The cost is $35. (This can be a great gift for your student or family.)

Broad Run High School is sponsoring a Cookie Walk on December 2, 9:00AM – 1:00PM at Fitwize 4 Kids, 21720 Red Rum Drive in Ashburn.

REGISTER FOR STEP UP LOUDOUN YOUTH COMPETITION, DEC. 15
We’d like to remind you again about this great opportunity for students to enter a project in Step Up Loudoun. Entries are due December 15. Students identify an issue, and then do something about it. Projects are judged at an event on April 15 at the LCPS Administration Building and students who progress to the final event on April 15 have a chance to win cash and recognition. Step Up Loudoun fully supports and embraces our One To The World and Project Based Learning objectives. Students may work individually, or as a team, and they may work with teachers, parents, counselors – or other adults.
