Important Upcoming Dates Message from Dr. Khoshaba

Dear SoCo Families,

As we close another vibrant and successful school year, I want to take a moment to extend my heartfelt gratitude to each of you for your unwavering support and commitment to our Stallion community. This year has been filled with remarkable achievements, inspiring growth, and unforgettable memories, all made possible by the collaboration and spirit of our dedicated students, staff, and families.

From the excitement of our sports teams' victories to the creativity displayed in our arts programs, from the academic milestones achieved to the captivating music concerts and theater performances, our school has thrived on the enthusiasm and hard work of every member of our community. We have watched our students grow not only in knowledge but also in character, resilience, and compassion. Their achievements, both big and small, are a testament to the incredible support system we have here at SoCo.

And, of course, I want to reflect for a moment about our 2024 graduating class and their graduation ceremony. I am incredibly proud of our 2024 graduating class for their remarkable achievements and the inspiring graduation ceremony we shared. These students have grown into resilient, capable young adults, ready to gallop into the future with confidence and determination. Like strong stallions, they are now prepared to run free and navigate the vast fields of life beyond high school, equipped with the knowledge and skills to forge their own paths.

As we transition into the summer months, I hope each of you finds time to relax, rejuvenate, and enjoy the company of loved ones. Summer is a perfect opportunity to reflect on the past year’s accomplishments, set new goals, and recharge for the exciting adventures that await us in the coming school year.

Looking ahead, I am thrilled to share that the upcoming school year promises to be just as dynamic and inspiring. We have a host of new programs, events, and initiatives planned that will continue to foster a love of learning, creativity, and community spirit in our students. Our dedicated teachers and staff are already preparing to welcome students back in August with open arms and innovative ideas that will make the 2024-2025 school year our best yet.

Please keep an eye out for important updates and information that will be shared throughout the summer. Our school office will be open on select days to assist with any questions or needs you may have.

Thank you once again for your partnership and support. I am immensely proud to be part of such a spirited and caring school community. Wishing you all a safe, enjoyable, and restful summer. I look forward to seeing everyone back on campus in August, ready to embark on another fantastic year at South County High School!

Best regards,

Kambar

Message from Dr. Khoshaba

Happy June, SoCo!

 

We are in the thick of end of year celebrations and preparing for the graduation of the class of 2024, which promises to be one of the best! As we prepare for the ending of another great school year, let’s also reflect on some very special memories that occurred in the past week.

Honoring Lillian Blackwell!

I was happy to attend a landmark event in Fairfax County: the unveiling of the inaugural marker of the Fairfax County Black/African American Historical Markers Project. This event celebrated the legacy of civil rights activist Lillian Blackwell and took place at Oakton High School, where all of her children attended school. The event was captured in a news story, which can be found here: https://wtop.com/fairfax-county/2024/06/civil-rights-activist-honored-by-fairfax-county-students/. I was so proud to learn that three of our student alumni, as a class project with our Social Studies Department Chair, Sean Miller, spearheaded this historical marker. Way to go, SoCo!

South County is on Track!

Congratulations to our incredible Girls Track team for racing their way to a fantastic second place finish in the state tournament! You've truly outpaced the competition and sprinted into our hearts. Your hard work, determination, and team spirit have shone through every step of the way. You all deserve a standing ovation for this remarkable achievement. Keep running strong, champions!

I am thrilled to share the news of our boys and girls track teams hosting one of the most celebratory and formal end-of-season celebrations that I've ever seen. The evening was a splendid mix of joy, elegance, and camaraderie, reflecting the dedication and hard work that each athlete has poured into this season. It was a night filled with laughter, heartfelt speeches, and well-deserved recognition of their achievements. A huge thank you to Coach Mo, his coaching staff, and everyone else who made this event possible. Lastly, congratulations to our amazing track teams for making this season unforgettable!

 

A Night of Champions!

This past Sunday evening, we experienced an extraordinary celebration of athletics that truly showcased our SoCo spirit! Our student athletes were honored with a variety of recognitions, and the atmosphere was filled with heartfelt congratulations and support for one another. This sense of community and celebration is what makes SoCo such a special place. A special shoutout to Mr. Wooten and Ms. Bashore for coordinating this fantastic event, and to Mr. Aldo Razo for capturing the memorable moments with his amazing photography. Go SoCo

And the Beat Rows On!

The South County Crew team participated in the National Championships in New Jersey, and the Stotesbury Cup Regatta in Pennsylvania. At Nationals, South County was represented by 24 athletes in various categories. Despite challenging conditions, including heat, sun, and wildlife, the team performed admirably. The Men’s Varsity Four narrowly missed advancing, the Women’s Junior Four placed 19th, and the Freshman Eight made an impressive upset. The Women’s Varsity Four reached the finals, finishing 6th overall. At the Stotesbury Cup, the team faced tough competition and variable weather. The Women’s First Varsity Four reached the finals, narrowly missing a medal by 0.03 seconds. The Men’s Second Varsity Four also made the finals, finishing 4th. Despite not securing medals, South County demonstrated strong performances, showcasing the talent and determination of their rowers.

 

South County Spectrum: A Pyramid of Artistic Talent

South County teachers were brimming with pride this Saturday, June 1st, at the SoCo Pyramid Art Show. Students from K-12 were represented in the McGuire Woods Gallery of the Work House Art Center here in Lorton. Beautiful works in drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, photography, and digital art graced the gallery. We at South County are so thankful to the Work House Art Center for granting us such a wonderful space to showcase our students' work, and we applaud all our young artists for their hard work and vision.

Bridging Education and Enterprise

This past Monday, we had the wonderful opportunity to celebrate and express our heartfelt gratitude to our local business partners for their incredible support of our Work Awareness Transition program. Their dedication to partnering with our students throughout the year is a shining example of the strength and unity that define our SoCo DNA! Thank you for making such a positive impact on our students' lives!

Academic Aces: Celebrating Student Success

A week ago, we celebrated our Underclassman awards, and this week we continued the recognition celebrations with our seniors. We have amazingly talented students in our Stallion Nation, and it’s truly one of my favorite things to do when we shine the spotlight on them!

Brushing Away Stigma

I want to thank Senior Maya Martinos for the latest mural that’s new to our school. Her Bring Change to Mind club, which features the destigmatizing of mental health, has brought rays of hope to many in our school who need encouragement. Thank you, Maya!

I look forward to seeing everyone who is able to join us at the Eagle Bank Arena this Monday at 2:00pm.

Message from Dr. Khoshaba

Happy June!

Can you believe we’re already in the final month of the school year? It feels like just yesterday we were welcoming everyone at Open House. Time sure flies when you're having fun, and we’ve had plenty of it! Let's dive into this week's highlights and celebrate our amazing community together!

Finishing the Season with a Smile!

First up was the final practice for our Crew team. They had a "row-tastic" schedule filled with fun, including a grade-level competition. It was wonderful to see our athletes enjoying themselves in their unique way, truly making a splash!

Hats off to our Girls Softball and Soccer teams for finishing their seasons with a bang! Both teams made it to the post-season and represented SoCo with flying colors. They definitely knocked it out of the park and kicked it up a notch!

We also had our second branding meeting with the Jostens staff this week. We're excited to finalize a branding statement that captures our Stallion spirit and sets us apart from other high schools. These meetings have been a "brand" new experience, making me feel so grateful to be part of this incredible family.

 

Our annual Student Athlete College Signings Day was truly a hit. Watching each of our 25 athletes thank their supporters was positively inspirational. The respect and heartfelt messages delivered by our audience members made me prouder than ever to be a Stallion. It was a "sign" of great things to come!

 

Mr. Velazquez’s STEM Engineering students amazed us with their rocket launchers earlier this week. These future engineers put on a stellar display, shooting various items into the air. It was a blast to see their creativity and ingenuity in action. Way to "launch" into success, Mr. V. and the Engineering students!

 

Our College Preparation Program students have been "study-ninjas" for several years, and their hard work has paid off as they prepare to graduate. Our seniors were celebrated in style, thanks to our amazing staff sponsors! A huge congratulations to our graduating Seniors in the CPP program – you're ready to take on the world!

 

Our Black Student Association's end-of-year celebration was also a hit this week. With great music, delicious food, and a variety of activities, everyone had a blast. I particularly enjoyed competing alongside some of our finest students in the fun events. It was the perfect way to cap off the school year!

 

Thank you all for making this week unforgettable. Let’s keep the Stallion spirit high as we head into the final stretch!

Looking Ahead!

Best of luck to our Boys and Girls Track teams, who are racing to the state championship this weekend. I have full confidence that they’ll represent our school community at the highest level and leave the competition in the dust! Stay tuned for next week's newsletter, where I'll be sprinting to share the results with you!

Lastly, here’s another reminder about the schedule for the final two weeks of school:

  • June 3 – Grades 9-11 (Regular day); Seniors (Early release at 11:17)
  • June 4 – Grades 9-11 (Regular day); Seniors (Early release at 9:40)
  • June 5 – Grades 9-11 (Regular day); Seniors (10AM Grad Rehearsal in the Bubble)
  • June 6 – Grades 9-11 (Early Release at 11:17); Seniors (Class trip)

Message from Dr. Khoshaba

Greetings, SoCo family,

May is one of my favorite months of the year. In addition to the beautiful flowers that bloom, it houses many special days: Mother’s Day, many of my family and friends’ birthdays, and preparation time for graduation! Let’s review the latest news in the world of SoCo …

Celebrating 20 Years of Excellence!

As we march closer to South County High School's 20th birthday bash, we're gearing up for a celebration that promises to be two decades in the making! With a tentatively planned Spring 2025 extravaganza on the horizon, it's time to kick off the party planning. If you're eager to join the fun and help make this milestone event one to remember, don't hesitate to shoot an email over to Michelle Gunderman at [email protected] and let's get this party started!

Taking Victory Laps!

Looks like our softball team really "pitched" a perfect game against Mount Vernon, scoring an impressive 18-0 victory! With hits like that, they're definitely on the "fast-pitch" to success. Congratulations on sliding into the next round of the Regions!

Way to kick it, Girls Soccer team! With a 2-0 victory last week, you're not just scoring goals, you're scoring tickets to the Region game! Keep dribbling towards success!

Looks like our track teams are really sprinting ahead in the race for success! Whether it's the girls’ or boys’ team, they're both "running" circles around the competition. Keep up the pace, track stars!

Harmony in Motion

It's been a symphony of success this week with our music concerts hitting all the right notes! Huge applause to our talented students for orchestrating such melodious performances straight from the heart. Encore, encore!

Leaders of Tomorrow: Celebrating Our Student Trailblazers!

I'd like to extend a big congratulations to Parker Bryant for achieving his SEALS (Student Equity Ambassador Leaders) cord. His dedication as an equity leader has been invaluable, making a significant impact during his time in high school. We take pride in his accomplishments and eagerly anticipate witnessing his future endeavors.

 

It’s important to also recognize our students who served in the Global Leaders program. Minh Do, Ethan Larimore, and Maya Martinos learned and practiced leadership, as well as how to make the world a better place. I can’t wait to see the type of impact these next-level world influences will have on us!

Diving Into Innovation

Venturing into the Entrepreneurship class last Friday was an absolute delight! With a "Shark Tank" vibe, students joined forces to present their ingenious business ideas. Whether brewing up plans for a coffee shop or cooking up concepts for a food truck, our Stallions are stirring up innovation that's truly impressive. Hats off to their entrepreneurial spirit—keep riding the wave, SoCo!

Calling All Voices: Become the Morning Maestro

Calling all potential voice virtuosos! We're on the hunt for a new student announcer for the 2024-25 school year, and we need someone as outstanding as Noah Pflugrath, our current announcer. With posters popping up all over the school like musical notes, auditions are set to rock the house this week (May 28-May 31). If you know a student with a talent for the spotlight, encourage them to scan this QR code and step up to the mic. Let's make some announcements that really sing, SoCo!

Brushstrokes of Brilliance

View this flipbook to get a preview of our AMAZING South County Pyramid Art Show! The show runs from Friday, May 24 to Sunday June 2. Our closing reception is Saturday, June 1 from 1pm -3pm. It’s a big and beautiful show and we hope to see you there supporting our young artists!

I hope everyone is enjoying this Memorial Day holiday weekend!

Dear SoCo Families,

Greetings from the principal’s office! As we head into the final stretch of the school year, I'm bursting with excitement to share some fabulous news and updates with you. Get ready to be wowed – there’s lots to celebrate!

Prom Was a Hit!

Our students danced the night away at prom, and it was an absolute hit! From the stunning outfits to the fantastic music, it was a night to remember. A huge thank you to everyone who helped make it a smashing success!

Sports at Jubilee

Our SoCo athletes have been making us proud! A big round of applause for our girls’ soccer team, the Patriot District Champs! They played with heart and hustle, and their victory is well-deserved.

Track and field have been on the fast track to success, with many personal bests and school records being shattered. Keep running strong, team!

 

Our Softball team also played a very competitive game that night. Of special note was that player Ava Abromavage hit it out of the park – literally! She celebrated her 100th base hit in her high school career. That’s a hit-trick worth cheering for! Way to go, Ava!

Blossom & Bloom: A Fresh Start for South County Garden Club

This past week, our dedicated members of the South County Garden Club rolled up their sleeves and got to work revitalizing our flower gardens by Door 1. With a lot of enthusiasm and teamwork, they cleaned up the beds, pruned the plants, and spread a fresh layer of mulch to prepare for a season of spectacular blooms. Our garden is now ready to flourish, thanks to the hard work and green thumbs of our amazing volunteers. Thank you to all who participated in making our garden a beautiful and welcoming space for the community!

SoCo Crew Makes Waves at the State Regatta!

Last weekend, SoCo “crew”-sed into great results at the 2024 State Crew Regatta. We won one gold medal, four silvers, a third place, a fifth place, and a 6th place. We certainly earned more than our share of place finishes. Way to row, Crew team!

20th Anniversary of SoCo – Let’s Celebrate Together!

Next year marks the 20th anniversary of South County High School, and we’re gearing up for a celebration that will be second to none!

Message from Dr. Khoshaba

Dear Parents,

 

I hope this message finds you well and filled with the warmth of spring as we move through another exciting chapter of the school year. I have a lot of celebratory and informative information to share with you as we continue to work together in support of our students' growth and success.

Upcoming Opportunities

As we near the end of another school year, I want to extend a warm invitation to our final Parent Advisory Council meeting this Wednesday, May 15, at 6:00pm in the library. Parental input and involvement in these meetings have been invaluable throughout the year, contributing greatly to our shared goals of enhancing the educational experience for all our students. However, to ensure meaningful discussions and effective decision-making, I kindly request the participation of a minimum of five parents. Should we fail to meet this minimum requirement, regrettably, we will have to cancel this final meeting and reconvene next year. Your presence and insights are highly valued, and I sincerely hope to see many of you there.

Sign Up here Parent Advisory Council 

Remarkable Recognitions!

Theater: Bravo to our sensational theater stars! Our performance of Singin’ in the Rain was nominated for “Best Musical” for The Jimmy Awards and our students will be performing at The National Theatre on Saturday, May 25th! Natalie Beasley was also nominated for Best Actress! This is one of the most competitive theatre events and we are honored to be nominated and get to perform! Their stellar performance has truly stolen the show and left us all applauding in awe.

Lucky enough to catch the May 10th spectacle, these outstanding performers left the crowd buzzing with excitement! While we stuck to our 'no pictures during the show' rule, I managed to snap some shots pre and post-performance. As an added feature, Senior Night was also celebrated, with all Actors/Actresses, Stage Crew, and Tech Support taking to the front of the stage. Bravo, Stallion stars! Your talent truly shines.

 

Also, Parker Bryant, Noah Pflugrath, and Zach Smith were nominated for Cappies awards for their performances in Much Ado About Nothing. Here are their specific areas of nomination: Noah for supporting actor in a play, Zach for comic actor in a play, Parker for lead actor in a play. To all of our SoCo Theater students, your talent shines brighter than any spotlight!

Teacher Appreciation Week: I would like to thank several groups for their involvement in recognizing our teachers and staff for this week’s Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week. A special thanks to our SGA, lead by Mrs. Kelley Peck, for the week-long theme and gifts around Under the Big Top. They hosted everything from breakfast to popcorn stations to beautiful decorations and messages throughout the school.

I also want to highlight our PTSO, who sponsored a delicious luncheon on Thursday! Staff LOVED the meal and the candy bags that they could leave with.

Finally, I’d like to thank Bai-lee Therapeutic Massage for donating free, 10-minute shoulder massages to our staff.

Technology Student Association: We have new State Champions in Robotics! Last weekend, 19 South County High School students from the TSA competed at the state competition in Hampton, Virginia. South County entered 7 out of 40 possible events. Junaid Abdulhamid and Faith Mekonen placed in the top ten for Forensic Science, while Satvi Desai and Tesfai Tecle did the same for Data Science and Analytics. Finally, the VEX Robotics team, consisting of Ayaan Shaikh, James (Sungu) Malloy, Ryan Dang, Nola Gerold, Kayla Blosser, Taha Nasir, and Nathan Park took home 1st place! Your hard work, dedication, and innovative spirit have truly paid off, and we couldn't be prouder of your achievement.

 

Inspirational Stallions: This week, we hosted our first-ever Stallion Inspiration awards. Six students were recognized for either overcoming adversity or displaying exceptional citizenship during their time at SoCo. Following the awarding of their individual recognitions, each students had the opportunity to share who their most inspirational SCHS staff members were. Congratulations to all of these deserving Stallions!

Blessed with Blesi!

This past week, Delegate Tran joined our Stallion Nation as we celebrated one of our English teachers, Ms. Luci Blesi, for being our Region 4 New Teacher of the Year for the 2022-23 school year. We thank Delegate Tran for presenting a new Proclamation to Ms. Blesi in recognition of her outstanding contributions to education.

Excelling in Athletics:

The Boys Soccer team celebrated Senior Night this week. They impressed me with their high level of speed, strength, and athleticism throughout the game. Their season has been nothing short of goal-tastic! Keep kicking it with that winning spirit! Congratulations on a successful season, team!

While at this game, I had the pleasure of sitting with the Hyun family as they regularly cheered for various players. Sitting with Mr. Hyun, himself a soccer coach, helped me learn so much of the ins and outs of the game. Thank you for the lessons, Mr. Hyun! You’re an excellent teacher!

Row-mendous news! Our crew team has paddled their way to an incredible achievement, clinching third place in the State competition! Their performance has made waves of pride throughout our school community. Remember that oar-dinary becomes extraordinary with your passion and effort. Congratulations on this fantastic accomplishment!

 

Silver Jubilee: It was a privilege to attend the 25th anniversary celebration of the Durga Temple recently. This marked my inaugural visit to a Hindu Temple, and I was deeply moved by the warmth and hospitality extended by everyone present. The experience was enlightening as I was graciously immersed in the rich traditions and beliefs of the Hindu faith. Each interaction offered valuable insights into the customs and practices that form the foundation of this vibrant community.

A heartfelt appreciation goes to Saurabh Thakrar, whose guidance and hospitality made my visit truly memorable. His personal tour shed light on the various facets of the Temple, enriching my understanding of its significance. The presence of such kind-hearted individuals like Saurabh and the entire community exemplifies the inclusivity and diversity that enriches the fabric of our Lorton community.

Principal Pioneers:

I had the great joy of having three students shadow me for a day in our second “Principal for the Day” activity. These three student leaders, Julia Qu, Faith Mckenon, and Elena Garcia, dressed the part in their business suits as we walked the halls and discussed leadership ideas and experiences. I enjoyed learning with and from these young leaders for a full day. With students like these leading the way, I feel confident that our future is bright at SoCo! I forgot to get their picture day one, so here are my future principals the next day.

 

The Days Ahead: The end of the school year will be here before you know it. Here’s a look at the schedule for the final two weeks of school:

 

Save the Date!: Looking for a FREE, fun concert to attend on Saturday, June 8th from 7:30-9:00pm? Grab your jazz hands and head on over to the Lorton Workhouse Center to hear the toe-tapping tunes of the South County High School Jazz Band! Our talented students are ready to jazz up your evening and kick off the Fairfax County Summer Concert series in style. Be sure to bring a picnic blanket or chairs for this outdoor concert. For more information, please visit https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/performances/south-county-high-school-jazz-band/060824.

Important Reminder: As the school year wraps up, don't forget to grab your yearbook! We've got cool new banners around campus with QR codes for easy ordering. If you want to guarantee yourself a copy, make sure to pre-order because we'll only have a limited number available for sale in person.

 

That’s all for now. Have a great weekend, and I look forward to sharing more updates with you next week.

Message from Dr. Khoshaba

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Happy May! I hope this message finds you well and enjoying the lovely spring weather. Here are some updates and highlights from our Stallion community this week:

School Culture:

The month of May is dedicated to celebrating the rich heritage and contributions of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI). We look forward to honoring this cultural heritage throughout the month with various educational opportunities. From information shared on morning announcements to decorations around the building to SO MUCH more, we look forward to celebrating AAPI month throughout May.

 

The Bubble received a thorough cleaning/makeover recently and looks beautiful. It's always a pleasure to provide our students with a clean and welcoming environment.

 

Students from Mrs. Hill’s Government classes showcased their talent by creating beautiful posters about New Deal Agencies. I’ve included a sample of 8 posters here, along with a magnified look at one specific poster so you can see the details our students focused upon. Kudos to these creative Stallions!

 

Our Social Studies Department Chair, Sean Miller, was featured in USA Today for his inspirational work. It showcases his many talents as he teaches AP African American History. You can read the article here.

Awesome Athletic Prowess!

This week was filled with competitive spirit and athletic achievements. Our Girls Soccer team kicked it up a notch, as they scored goals and took names!

 

The Softball team celebrated Senior Night in a successful way, as they were knocking it out of the park on their way to another victory!

 

The Boys Tennis team also celebrated Senior Night this week, as they continued a successful season of serving up success on the court!

 

Our Baseball team was batting a thousand as they celebrated Senior Night on Thursday.

 

Last but not least, our Boys Lacrosse team celebrated Senior Night as well this week. This has been a great season for the team this year, as they have been “laxing” like champions on and off the field!

 

Congratulations also go out to our Crew team for finishing their regular season strong. Here are the results from the last regatta of the season, where we came home with lots of ribbons!!  Best wishes to all team members as they prepare for States!

 

Updates:

I know I already reported on our successful Art Gala last week, but Ms. Fischer and her team put together this visual portfolio of the artists standing beside their artwork. Thanks again to this team for putting together a wonderful event. https://www.flipsnack.com/justyfischer/2024-south-county-art-gala.html

As first reported in last week’s newsletter, Samson's Eagle Scout project continues to raise awareness about Type 1 Diabetes. He recently created a video to help educate both Stallions and visitors to our school, which you can watch by clicking on the QR code below.

 

Marching to Success!

As many of you know, we partner with Edison High School to establish our JROTC program, and we’re proud that our team secured an overall 2nd place win in a competition on Saturday, 27 April 2024.  They squared-off against 10 teams throughout Fairfax County and other teams traveling from as far as Hampton, VA.  In separate events, the team won a 3rd place trophy in Rope Bridge, 1st place trophies in the Obstacle Course and the Litter Carry.  Of the 20 members, 12 participated in the competition.  Every event required teamwork, physical strength, and critical thinking skills to navigate and strategize each event.  Congratulations to all of our JROTC students! 

  

 

Coming Attractions:

Next week, we will be celebrating our dedicated teachers and staff members during Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week. It's a time to express our gratitude for their hard work and commitment to our students' success.

Thank you for your continued support and involvement in our school community. Have a wonderful weekend!

Equally impressive, our Girls Lacrosse seniors have been sticking to strong leadership skills throughout the season!

Lastly, our Girls Soccer seniors were celebrated Friday night for kicking leadership into another gear this season!

We are proud of all these athletes’ achievements and wish them the best as they wrap up their seasons.

Art Gala Extravaganza!

Our Art Gala show last Thursday was a resounding success! Thanks to our incredible Fine Arts teachers (Ms. Fischer, Ms. Kimble, Mr. Smith, and Mr. Christie) for inspiring creativity with our students. With a few hundred pieces of art on display, I can’t share pictures of every magnificent piece of art, but if you click on the QR code in the first picture, you can go on a virtual tour and see many of the beautiful pieces that were showcased.

I’d also like to recognize Mr. Kieley and our Guitar students for setting the perfect musical tone for this dignified event. Last but not least, we appreciate Mr. Long and his Culinary Arts students for providing the delicious hors d’oeuvres throughout the event. The displayed artworks were nothing short of impressive!

Thank you for your continued support and involvement in our school community. Together, we make South County High School a place of excellence and pride.

Scouting Success!

Congratulations to one of our Stallions, Samson Boyd, who has successfully completed his Eagle Scout project. Samson dedicated his time and effort to providing health kits specifically tailored for students with Type 1 diabetes. This project not only showcases Samson's leadership and dedication but also highlights his compassion and commitment to making a positive impact in our community. Samson's initiative embodies the spirit of service and care that we strive to instill in all our students. His project will undoubtedly make a meaningful difference in the lives of those who need it most. Please join me in congratulating Samson on this incredible achievement.

Artistically Teaching Peace

Join me in extending heartfelt gratitude to Aurelia Klunder, a former South County High Art Honor Society member turned George Mason University sophomore, and her equally gifted mother, Patti Klunder. Together, they've graced our school walls with a stunning mural advocating for peace, showcasing not just their artistic prowess but also their unwavering dedication to our community. Spending countless hours, often staying well into the evening, they've painted not just colors but a message of harmony and positivity. Their artistic strokes, mixed with love and dedication, make them shining examples of the best our South County community has to offer.

Have a great weekend!

Message from Dr. Khoshaba

Greetings Parents and Guardians,

As we continue to strengthen our school community's identity, we value your input. Please take a moment to share your thoughts by completing a brief survey here within the next week. We look forward to hearing from you and appreciate your ongoing partnership.

Military Spirit Week!

A big thank you to Mrs. Ohlmeyer, Mrs. Peck, and Mrs. Burnside for sponsoring our Military Student Spirit Week! Here how we celebrated with Spirit Days this week:

  • Monday: Camo Day
  • Tuesday: Stars and Stripes (wear red, white, and blue)
  • Wednesday: Purple UP!
  • Thursday: Represent your favorite branch of service (wear your Marines, Navy, Air Force t-shirts and hoodies!)
  • Friday: Pajama Day (we sleep soundly because of those who serve)

There was also a breakfast and ice cream social for our military students. I was pleasantly surprised to see how many students we had the chance to celebrate this week.

Important Announcement:

During the upcoming AP, IB, and SOL testing windows, morning attendance notifications will be delayed by one hour for middle and high schools, ensuring student safety and timely communication regarding absences. The delay will be in effect from April 22 to May 24, 2024.

Exceptional Instruction!

This week, I had the chance to observe exceptional instructional strategies in several classes, including Ms. Cortes/Ms. Anton, Ms. Gero, and Ms. McClinton's classes. It's inspiring to see our dedicated educators in action!

Don’t Miss Out!

A friendly reminder to secure your copy of this year's yearbook—a keepsake of cherished memories and milestones. There are two ways to order: visit our website, or click on the QR code on this flyer that will be displayed at school.

Reminders:

  • Our Art Gala is coming this Thursday at 6:00pm
  • Food delivery reminders: Please use door 1 for all deliveries during school hours to maintain security protocols. Orders violating this policy will be confiscated and discarded.

 

Super Saturday!

This week ended in one of the most enjoyable Saturdays in recent memory for me. The day started in a great way, as I was able to join the Crew team for this weekend’s regatta. I want to commend the Jr-4 Women’s team for earning third place. Special recognition goes to Hannah Tan, Sadie Ward, Chloe Cabrera, Ariane Kim, and Reilly Novchich.

 

The men’s Novice team also outperformed many teams as they rowed into third place as well. An “oar’s salute” goes to Peter Graham, Jackson Sinon, Stephan Grandison, Aden Saleh, Paxton Cowan, Sebastian Martin, Adam Pinsky, Trevor Williams, and Aidan Kim. Way to go, Stallion rowers!

 

Next, I traveled to school to get schooled with some amazing crafts at our PTSO Spring Craft Show. Special recognition goes out to Mrs. Renee Flynn, Mrs. Olivia, and their committee for putting together another wonderful event. In addition to the wonderful crafters and vendors there, we were entertained by the music of DC Transit and enjoyed visiting with our county Police, Bomb Squad, and Fire departments. We even had a dunk tank there, and many of our students and faculty took turns getting on the “plank!” This was an exceptional community event.

Saturday came to a close as our Boys Lacrosse team competed against Oakton High School. It was a competitive match that saw the scores going back and forth the entire evening. I was very proud of our Stallions for their energy and enthusiasm, but most importantly their sportsmanship. The students on this team are role models for being school spirited, both on and off the field.

 

Thank you for your attention to these important matters, and as always, we appreciate your support in creating a safe and vibrant learning environment for our students.

Warm regards,

 

Kambar

Message from Dr. Khoshaba

Dear Stallion Families,

I hope this message finds you well and enjoying the blossoming spring weather! Even though it was only a four-day work week, we packed in lots of fun memories! Let’s get to them.

Celebrating Our Stallions!

Last week, we had the pleasure of celebrating National Assistant Principals Week, a time to honor and appreciate the outstanding work of our incredible assistant principals: Mr. Caven, Mrs. Tolan, Mrs. Jones, and Mrs. Beskenis. Their dedication, leadership, and knack for keeping things running smoothly are like a well-oiled machine, or should I say, like a well-stocked library with endless resources!

Speaking of libraries, this week marked National Librarian Day, a perfect opportunity to recognize the invaluable contributions of our dynamic duo, Ms. Strong and Ms. Romney. They don't just stack books; they stack opportunities for our students to explore, learn, and grow. Our library is a treasure trove of knowledge and a cozy retreat for curious minds, thanks to their passion and hard work. Here’s just one example of how they welcome and celebrate all of our students in our library. Thank you for all you do, Ms. Strong and Ms. Romney!

 

Exciting Events!

In other exciting news, our school is buzzing with upcoming events! As a friendly reminder, we have an art show on the horizon, which will be the first of its kind in our school’s history.

 

We started the week with a Monday Pep Rally to ignite our Stallion spirit. This was the first time I’ve ever been part of one that occurred at the beginning of the week, and I think we need to keep with this newest idea. Starting Spirit Week with a Pep Rally on Monday isn't just about boosting school spirit; it's also the key to rallying our enthusiasm and setting the tone for success in all aspects of life! From the Ring Toss to the Rock-Paper-Scissors Roshambo event to incredible dance routine of our K-POP student club, I know we all enjoyed this celebration.

On Thursday, we had a special “Advisory Choice Day,” which allowed our students to select from one of several dozen activities hosted by staff members. From making slime to participating in Zumba to so much more, our students appeared to really enjoy that special day.

I had an especially great time playing in the thrilling student vs. faculty volleyball game that had us all cheering (and maybe sweating a little too). Kudos to Mrs. Sam Tolan for orchestrating a game that not only entertained but also united us as a school community.

 

Let's not forget the sweet initiative by Sean Cousins, one of our senior stars. He's organizing a Krispy Kreme fundraiser to support fellow seniors with class fees and the All-Night Graduation Party. Who can resist the temptation of those delicious donuts, especially when it's for such a good cause?

 

And let's not forget our phenomenal Girls Tennis team, who recently showcased an impressive display of athleticism on the courts! Their dedication, skill, and sportsmanship are truly smashing, serving as a great reminder that in tennis and in life, it's all about keeping your eye on the ball and serving up your best shot! Their teamwork and determination inspire us all to ace every opportunity that comes our way. We're incredibly proud of their achievements and look forward to cheering them on in their upcoming matches. Go, Stallions!

 

On the academic front, we recently had a Breakfast Breakdown where students shared their thoughts on diversity, advisory classes, and improvements like easier access to the library during lunch breaks. Thank you to all of these students for making it to our 7:30am meeting and sharing such wonderful ideas for SoCo.

 

Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead, filled with laughter, learning, and lots of love.

 

Warm regards,

South County HS Athletics Mental Health in Childhood

Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) are associated with children’s physical and mental health. Mental health disorders such as ADHD and anxiety are the most commonly diagnosed in children, which commonly occurs together. Anxiety are feelings of worry, apprehension or dread that something bad is going to happen. Children diagnosed with ADHD may have trouble paying attention, controlling impulsive behaviors, or be overly active. Early diagnosis and appropriate services for children and their families can make a difference in the lives of children with mental health disorders.

Anxiety related triggers are lonely and frightening emotional responses related to situations, persons, places or objects. Today’s sources of stress for our students include: increased coursework and graduation requirements, extracurricular activities, household responsibilities, and social media. Social media has been a great way to increase connection and communication, but for our young people it contributes to shorter attention spans and information overload. Signs of anxiety include appearing worried, irritable or nervous, restlessness, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, along with physical symptoms such as sleeping problems, headaches, and stomach aches. It is understandable for a parent to be worried because figuring out what to do is hard. Here are five simple ways to respond to teens with anxiety:

  1. Recognize warning signs.
  2. Guide your child to take a few deep breaths to slow things down.
  3. Make sure your child understands you are available if they need to talk.
  4. Acknowledge your child’s feelings and avoid downplaying situations or issues.
  5. Help them come up with ways to deal with the situation next time.
