Special Holocaust Survivor Assembly Postponed to Thursday, January 31st
Middleburg Academy is honored to host Rubin Sztajer this Thursday, January 31st during our assembly period (10:20am to 10:55am). The schedule will be such that lunch will directly follow the assembly, to allow more time for questions and conversations with our guest. Please note that this is a day later than originally planned due to the impending poor winter weather that may affect travel tonight and tomorrow morning.

Mr. Sztajer is a 92-year old survivor of the Holocaust (at the Markstadt Concentration Camp) and will be speaking about his experiences to our student body. In advance of Mr. Sztajer's visit, we watched a film from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

We are inviting parents to attend this special event on 1/31, but we request that you RSVP by following this link. We also request that no small children are in attendance, due to the subject matter that will be discussed. Please be sure to arrive before assembly begins!
Reminder for Juniors
Class of 2020 students: don't forget that your college questionnaire is due back to Mr. Poutré by Monday, February 4th!

Sam J. '20 at the Southeast Honors String Festival
Congratulations to Sam J. '20 who was chosen to be a participant in the Southeast Honors String Festival the weekend of January 25 at UNC. It was a prestigious accomplishment for him to audition and be selected from over 160 applicants. There were several string workshops and private lessons concluding with a final concert on Sunday.
Middleburg Academy is the only independent school in Virginia to offer an Alexa Newsfeed - or skill! Students are producing daily newsfeeds from the school and all you need to do is add this skill to your Alexa/Echo account. So in the morning, ask Alexa, "What's in the news?" and you will hear the news of the day from the students.

Special thanks to Chelsea P. '19 and Alexa (yes, Alexa) L. '19 who are the voices of these Amazonian Dragons!

Alex C. ’23 is partnering with Leveling The Playing Field (LPF) to run a collection drive that started this week. It will run for the rest of this week and next.

LPF collects donated sports equipment and redistributes it to low-income kids throughout the DMV. All donations benefit needy schools, after school programs, and athletic leagues looking to engage their students in the physical and mental benefits of youth sports participation. LPF relies on used/excess sports donations from local communities to engage underprivileged children, so clean out your garages and basements of your old sporting equipment so that we can get every kid off the sidelines and into the game!

There will be a collection box in Mary House (to the left when you walk in the main door - in the coat closet), as well as the Dining Hall.
Don't forget that the winter formal is coming up next
Friday, February 8th from 8-11pm!
