Braddock Elementary's Walk-4-Education event promotes fitness

Braddock Elementary School in Annandale held its first annual Walk-4-Education walk-a-thon Thursday to raise money for the children of the Braddock community and promote the importance of health and fitness.

The children walked a designated path near the school (at 7825 Heritage Drive) marked by Braddock’s physical education teachers, Ken Jackson and Alex Winiewicz—one mile for kindergarten and first-grade students, two miles for second and third-graders, and three miles for fourth and fifth-graders. Teachers, other faculty, and parents, walked, too. The goal was 100 percent participation. It was scheduled for Veterans’ Day, so parents could come and stay for a special Thanksgiving lunch with their children and an assembly.

Annandale High School College Fair

This was sent to us by Annandale High School:

Sunday, October 17 is the Annual FCPS College Fair at Fair Oaks Mall.  Over 318 colleges will be represented at the fair.  The fair will begin at 7:30 pm and will conclude at 9:30 pm.  This is a great way to get information about colleges and to start receiving information about colleges and universities.  Take a large bag with you so that you may easily carry the information that the schools give out.  Also bring along return address labels or a pen so that you can fill out information cards for the schools, as they want to know about you as well.  This is a wonderful activity for all high school students.
