Congrats to Bridge Films!
I am pleased to announce that Stone Bridge's Bridge Films club took home the state championship last weekend in Experimental Film. Their winning piece in the VHSL competition is "What's Going On in Apartment B?" Judges reviewed all entries and Stone Bridge earned the highest score. The trophy is on display at school. Congrats on your hard work to TJ Santoro, Ava Bueno, Gabriel Figueroa, and Andrew Michael. The piece is available for viewing here.
Geospatial Projects on Display
Our students enrolled in Geospatial Science have their final projects currently on display in the JMU Geospatial Science Virtual Symposium. I hope that you will take a few minutes to view the outstanding work these students were able to complete despite the difficult time we find ourselves in.
Geospatial Science is a dual-enrollment course through James Madison University’s (JMU) Geospatial Semester. Students who take this course are high school juniors and seniors representing 11 of Loudoun’s high schools. Since 2006, the Geospatial Science course has provided an opportunity for students to learn emerging workforce skills in the fields of Geospatial Information Systems, Remote Sensing, and Global Positioning Systems. Development of these skills require students to think critically, problem-solve, collaborate with peers, and communicate their results with their peers and the community. The JMU Geospatial Semester program is one of only a few in the country that provide high school students with this opportunity. Alumni from this program have gone on to receive summer internships, college degrees in GIS, careers utilizing GIS, and job assignments in the military.
Stone Bridge Rowing Update
Stone Bridge Rowing Team determined to ‘Be the Pressure’
The Stone Bridge High School rowing team continued its competitive success at the Ted Phoenix regatta at Sandy Run Regional Park on June 5, 2021. Challenged by Head Coach Thomas to “be the pressure” this week, SBHS competed in 8 races against hundreds of other boats from schools across the Northern Virginia region and placed in 6 of them.
The Men’s Junior Varsity 4+, Men’s Junior Varsity 4x, and Women’s Novice 8 boats took 1st place; the Women’s Novice 4 boat took 2nd place; and the Men’s Junior Varsity 8 and Men’s Novice 8 boats took 3rd place out of all competitors in their classes. The SB Rowing Team's next event is the state finals at Sandy Run Regional Park on June 18-19, 2021. More information about the team, details about upcoming regattas, and photos are available on the team’s website.
Virtual Learning for Next Year
All Stone Bridge students will be returning to in-person learning in the fall. LCPS is offering distance learning through Virtual Loudoun for families who would prefer to continue in a distance learning model. Please review the details on this website if you're interested or reach out to your School Counselor to discuss details.

If you're leaving LCPS, review this Student Guide to learn how to save your files before they are deleted over the summer.
Students who are continuing in LCPS next year will keep their device over the summer, even if they are transferring to another LCPS school.
Our yearbooks have been delivered and are ready for pickup! We are so proud of our students for putting together a beautiful and comprehensive yearbook even in such a difficult year as this was.

- Monday - June 14th, 10 AM - 12 PM
- Tuesday - June 15th, 9 AM - 4 PM in room 603
