Springfield Community Day brings together health and fun.
Northern Virginia Community College students got a chance to showcase their knowledge about health and fitness during Springfield Community Day held at the NVCC Medical Campus on Saturday, April 18. Sarah Young and her classmates Trista Johnson and Andrea Diaz, dispensed information about the importance of dental hygiene and urged everyone to visit the dentist every six months. “Toothbrushing can’t reach everywhere. A lot of dental issues you don’t feel or you don’t have pain until it’s too late and you lose that tooth,” said Young.
As parents of three homeschool children, North Springfield residents Adam and Jerritt Dayhoff go through a lot of books. They were reminded just how many books, as well as how many they weren’t using, when the family moved to the area in September 2012.
Springfield resident Sam Martin remembers Karen Brown as the exemplary neighbor. “She was a wonderful friend who wouldn’t drive by the house without stopping,” he said. “She was always welcoming you in, and a fantastic cook.”
Competition tests students’ knowledge of history, language, culture and more.
Every year, high school students studying Japanese have a chance to participate in the National Japan Bowl, a competition that tests their knowledge of Japanese history, language, culture and more. Some of the country’s top language students make it to D.C. to compete; however, more than just classroom attendance is required in order to do well.
