CAREER DAY VOLUNTEERS: Mark Twain’s Student Service Team will be hosting an annual Career Day on Monday, November 24, 2014. We are seeking parents who would be interested in participating in showcasing their profession for our future workforce leaders.  The purpose of the event is to encourage students to begin to think about their futures, to make connections to the world of work and how it is linked to their academics, to expose students to careers, and to prepare students to be college and career ready. If you’re interested in being a guest presenter, please send your contact information (first and last name, email address, cell phone number, child’s name, and your job title/profession) to Zakiyya Brodie’s email address at or by phone at (703) 313-3741.

RUN, RUN, RUN!!:  Congratulations to 7th grade student Jessica Lee for her participation in the Albemarle Invitational Middle School 2 Mile this past Saturday with the Edison Cross Country team.  Competing on UVA’s home course, Panorama Farms, Jessica ran 16:10 on a hilly, but beautiful course that escaped the deluge of rain that Northern Virginia received that day.  Great job, Jessica!
