Loudoun Business Owners: Are You Looking For Ways to Reach Your Audience?

Loudoun Business Owners: Are You Looking For Ways to Reach Your Audience?

If you own or manage a business in Loudoun County, you understand the challenges that are sometimes associated with reaching your audience.

Have you considered the benefits of charitable donations to schools that service the families you wish to reach?

For instance, Sycolin Creek Elementary School PTA is hosting a Talent Show next Friday. The SCES Emmys will showcase the talent of nearly 150 students! And parents---who will surely be in mass attendance for the event---will "shop" at the school's auction.

What does that mean for you?

It's the chance to give back to your community with an investment that's small in comparison to your business's exposure of hundreds of families.

LEAP Looks at Innovations in Education

LEAP Looks at Innovations in Education

From Loudoun County Public Schools:

The Loudoun Education Alliance of Parents (LEAP) will explore a variety of educational innovations at its Wednesday, January 12th, meeting.

Addressing the diverse needs of a growing population could well require developing new educational methods or building upon those already in place in our schools. For example, how can we augment the use of technology in schools and homes? Are there existing programs elsewhere that Loudoun could use to supplement its offerings? Are there new educational models on the horizon?

LEAP will "open the doors" at 7 p.m. to offer parents, administrators, and guests an opportunity for informal discussion. The formal meeting begins at 7:30pm.
