Arlington, VA

Believe, Achieve & Inspire! This is more than a simple motto at Saint Ann Catholic School — these three words are the guiding principles of our school, our students and our faculty.

Saint Ann Catholic School is unique in many ways: we are a small and supportive school, with an average of 20 to 25 students per class. Our small size allows us to focus on academic excellence, but also on the moral formation of our students. Each student receives more personal attention as well as the individualized educational and spiritual guidance that promotes strong academic and leadership skills. Our students are a family; they protect and care for each other.

Saint Ann students follow the example of Christ in all that they do — and they are led in their efforts through the example of the faculty and staff. The words Believe, Achieve, Inspire embody the guiding principles of Saint Ann Catholic School where we develop students who follow the example of Christ in learning, leading and caring. Saint Ann Catholic School is located in Arlington, Virginia and enrolls approximately 250 students in preschool through 8th Grade. Come and visit our school and find out what makes Saint Ann School and Community stand out. We would love to meet you!

Cody Chance and Dick Nathan of Long & Foster Arlington are hosting a workshop on the topic of “right-sizing” at their office on Lee Highway in Arlington on December 10, from 5-7 p.m. There will also be another session of the workshop on January 21.

Every great endeavor begins with a great plan. This workshop will give you the tools to design your plan. We have created a workbook with an extensive planning guide to enable you to design a personalized written plan for your move, and more than twenty pages of resources specific to Northern Virginia to help you along the way!

These resources will help you to find the best people to assist you in your move, and help you get the belongings that won’t move with you into the hands of people who will value them. The workshop format is a “guided group discussion” of the workbook, with a chance for the participants to ask their own questions, and special guest presenter Alexandra Fry of Orchestrated Moves will be joining us to share her many years of expertise in organization and moving.

We will be discussing three major themes:

Guest companies, world class live music, family-friendly premier and the debut of new work highlights Jane Franklin Dance’s fall concert series at Theatre on the Run. Whether you are looking for fun for the whole family on a Saturday afternoon, or want to find magic on a Saturday night, Theatre on the Run is the place to be.

Matinees feature the family friendly “Splatter,” inspired by the book “The Color Monster” by Anna Llenas. Mixed up emotions are sorted and compared to colors and feelings associated with color. Each show opens with performances by local youth groups: Virginia Ballet Company and Local Motion Project.

The evening “Mix It Up” highlights guests Light Switch Dance Company, Emily Crews and Rachel Luebbert. Jane Franklin’s “For and Against” with live music by Mark Sylvester, arises from the notion that “opposites attract” and a little tension is a good thing. With simple body language, pushing, pulling or refusing to interact, a dialogue propels bodies in confrontation or sets individuals on a singular course. Forty+ performs a new work by Kelsey Rohr, a groovy piece reminding us to have fun and let go.

This Community Post was written by Synetic Theater and underwritten by The Fred Schnider Investment Group/Fred Schnider Gallery of Art and Embracing Arlington Arts supporter Annie Sweeney.

“People are stepping up to support art. People want to do something good for the community, the future. That’s why it’s a blessed country,” Paata Tsikurishvili says of America, his adopted home of 20+ years.

Back home in the Republic of Georgia, the founder and artistic director of Crystal City’s Synetic Theater trained primarily in physical theatre, which would come in handy during the years of Soviet occupation when artists were widely censored. In physical theatre, everything is metaphorical and through this art form, Tsikurishvili found ways to say what he wanted through allegory.

It’s just that spirit — the wordlessness of it — that would help make modern-day Synetic Theater what it is — an “artistic melting pot” as Tsikurishvili describes it, representing Americans and immigrants alike from all over the world. Tsikurishvili insists that Synetic’s international diversity is what makes it distinctly American. Exposure to different cultural influences continues to drive the company’s creative success.

On Sunday, October 27 at 10 a.m., at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, Jennifer Weaver, the founder of Weaver & Associates based in McLean, will discuss the epidemic of anxiety in children and what parents can do.

Anxiety can be a healthy natural function which we need to survive (and remember to do our homework). However, our culture is seeing increasing levels of less useful kinds of anxiety, especially in our children. Jennifer will discuss possible causes, and ways we can support our children in developing and maintaining good mental health in anxious times.

Jennifer Weaver is a psychotherapist and professor who specializes in treating children and adolescents in anxiety disorders. She is the founder of Weaver and Associates, a group psychotherapy practice in McLean, with 14 colleagues, all of whom specialize in child and adolescent therapy. She is also a 16 year faculty member of Catholic University, teaching in their MSW graduate program, and provides regular trainings to schools and institutions in the area.

These parenting and family discussions are sponsored by St. Peter’s as a community service. There is no charge and all are welcome, regardless of creed.

The 55+ resort-style community is just 90 minutes from the nation’s capital Lake Frederick, Virginia.

Trilogy at Lake Frederick, an exclusive and upscale 55+ community in Northern Virginia just 90 minutes from Washington, D.C., offers classes on haute cuisine cooking skills, a hot trend among aging Americans. Classes are offered on site at Rachel’s Kitchen, named for the widely celebrated environmentalist and author, Rachel Carson. Located in the Shenandoah Lodge & Athletic Club, the space combines a showcase kitchen with comfortable seating, and a large television which is used for exclusive ClubConnect educational and events programming featuring live simulcasts from throughout Trilogy’s network of communities.

The courses are part of a broader effort by Trilogy owner Shea Homes to meet the changing demands of the active adult home market. One recent proprietary study of potential 55+ homebuyers found that 70 percent said they would like to have a chef-driven food and beverage program in their community.

“Our residents have found these classes to be a great way to make new friends, pick up new skills and stay healthy,” said Jason King, general manager of Shea Homes at Trilogy at Lake Frederick. “There’s nothing like cooking together to help people come together.” Brian Whitson, executive chef of Region’s 117, an award-winning farm-to-table restaurant on site at Trilogy in the Shenandoah Lodge, organizes the cooking demonstrations. Whitson said that residents are learning how to prepare healthy and tasty meals.
