Brambleton Middle School and River Bend Middle School have both received the Purple Star Designation for the 2021-2022 school year.
The Purple Star is awarded to schools that provide consistent support to military-connected students and their families. The schools will receive a Resolution of Recognition from the Virginia Council on the Interstate Compact on the Education Opportunity of Military Children and an award coin to display.
Brambleton and River Bend join Trailside Middle in earning this designation. Trailside’s Purple Star was first awarded in 2019.
