ANNOUNCEMENTS

J.E.B. Stuart High School Drama Department

presents their spring play      

"Fuente Ovejuna"

written by Lope de Vega.  This is a comedic masterpiece by one of the greatest writers of the Spanish Golden Age.

Based on real-life events of 1476, Fuente Ovejuna tells the story of a town that bands together and rises up against a tyrannical overlord, resulting in his death.  When the authorities attempt to find out who is responsible, the people band together and perform one of the most memorable acts of resistance in world drama.  It is a story of love, honor, courage and above all, the inspiring power of the people when they stand up for what is right.

Performance dates are:- Thursday, Friday and Saturday 1, 2, 3 May at 7.30pm; Friday, Saturday 9,10 May at 7.30pm.

Performance will be held in J.E.B. Stuart High School Auditorium 

Tickets - $10 adults, $8 students and teachers.  Tickets available at the door, or at www.stuartdrama.org  For further information, phone 703-824-8934.

Opening night, Thursday 1 May is a 'Pay What You Can' performance and we welcome all who would like to support these hard-working students to come and enjoy the show at whatever cost you choose!

Ken Budd

Author, The Voluntourist: A Six-Country Tale of

Love, Loss, Fatherhood, Fate, and Singing Bon Jovi in Bethlehem

Monday, April 7, 2014

7:30 – 9:00pm in the Library

The Voluntourist a remarkable memoir about losing your

father, accepting your fate, and finding your destin

by volunteering around the world for numerous

worthy causes: Hurricane Katrina disaster relief in

New Orleans, helping special needs children in China,

studying climate change in Ecuador, lending a hand—

and a heart—at a Palestinian refugee camp in the

Middle East, to name but a few. Ken Budd's emotional

journey is as inspiring and affecting as those chronicled

in Little Princes and Three Cups of Tea.   At once a true

story of powerful family bonds, of sacrifice, of

self-discovery, The Voluntourist is an all-too-human,

real-life hero whom you will not soon forget.

ABOUT THE AUTHORKen Budd has written for The New

York Times, The Washington Post, Smithsonian, Huffington Post,

McSweeney’s, and many more publications.   You can follow Ken

Stuart High School Named Winner in

Recycling Communication, Marketing Competition

Teams from three Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS)

high schools have been named winners of a business

case competition to design communication and

marketing plans to promote recycling across the

school district. The competition was sponsored by

the FCPS Department of Facilities and Transportation

Services.

Winning first place was the team from Stuart High School.

Langley High School captured second place and

Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and

Technology finished in third place. All teams

received monetary awards to implement projects

at their schools and will be represented on a task

force that will come up with the overall district-wide

plan that will incorporate the student ideas and is

scheduled to be implemented for the 2014-15

school year. A team from Centreville High School

is also participating by providing expertise in the

use of applying geospatial technology to a case

study such as recycling improvement.

The competition was designed to promote more

thorough cafeteria, classroom, and outdoor recycling

across the school district. In an effort to illustrate

to student participants the environmental and

business implications of a robust recycling program

within a large organization such as FCPS, the

competition was a collaborative effort by district

personnel in facilities management, the district’s

Get2Green environmental education program,

and marketing education program managers.

Ernst and Young supported the competition by

providing the students with technical expertise in

business case analysis, providing written paper and

oral presentation judges, and by hosting the final

competition. They provided a panel of speakers

on careers at the firm that mix business and

scientific-analytical skills and provided the district

with monetary support to implement the winning

recycling marketing plan.

The FCPS Get2Green program is designed to

promote environmental stewardship among all

students by providing them with hands-on,

problem based learning that will improve their

school and community. Students participating

in the business case competition demonstrated

clear comprehension of the complexity of the

issue, technical knowledge of the environmental

and business impact of improved recycling,

creativity in the array of marketing activities

they proposed, and positive teamwork and

presentation skills. The new marketing plans

will be rolled out at schools in the fall.
