News from Our Preschool

What a wonderful start to the new year!  We have been filled with pride watching our Little Sprout’s walk confidently into Kindergarten and seeing how much all of our LHS friends have grown over the summer.  Such love and kindness have filled our hallways with this new year.

We look forward to welcoming our LHS Little Sprouts this week!

Linton Hall School’s Legendary Fife & Drum Corps Starting its 17th Year – New Members K-8 Welcome!

The LHS Fife & Drum Corps is looking for new members who are interested in playing fife or drums (snare/bass), marching in parades and continuing the legacy of performing patriotic music for our LHS Community, our local neighbors, our Veterans, (especially those WWII Veterans on Honor Air flights at Dulles!), our Senior Citizens and even our Virginia state leadership in Richmond! Tonight at “Back to School Night” the Corps will have a table in the hallway outside the main office. There will be a fifer and drummer giving musical demonstrations of some of the Corps’ musical repertoire. Parents of experienced Corps members will be there to answer questions, provide history of the Corps, registration and fee information, as well as the upcoming Fall Performance Schedule. The first Corps rehearsal is Wednesday, September 7th, from 3:30 – 5:30 in the gym and children in grades K-8 are encouraged to join. More detailed information will be emailed soon to all LHS families and there will be a table tonight at Back-to School Night.
