Kravitz Orthodontics continually supports our community by sponsoring school and PTA events, iPads for classrooms, athletic teams and school agendas for students in Loudoun County. You may have seen Dr. Kravitz on the back of your agendas that were received on the first day of school. If not, flip it over, take a look! Dr. Kravitz has helped cover the costs of these agendas by purchasing them for students in 12 schools!!!
We would like to thank these wonderful students for showing them off to their friends and family. We know you love to use your agendas and we are so happy to be part of your families. When you come in for your appointment, be sure to thank Dr. Kravitz-he loves seeing the different school designs!
A great big thank you to the school administrators of: Aldie Elementary School, Arcola Elementary School, Buffalo Trail Elementary School, J. Michael Lunsford Middle School, John Champe High School, Liberty Elementary School, Little River Elementary School, Mercer Middle School, Middleburg Elementary School, Moorefield Station Elementary School, Pinebrook Elementary School and Rock Ridge High School

Here at Kravitz Orthodontics we are SO excited to see the school buses on the road and teachers smiling in their new classrooms. We especially love to hear our patients tell us how much they love their new friends and what color rubber bands they chose over the summer for their braces. Word on the street is braces are COOL!
Today our team headed out to help volunteer at the open house for Pinebrook Elementary School. You will see our team in our spiffy blue shirts at all of the PTA events that we are sponsoring throughout the year. Come by and say hi!
We are happy to see teachers carrying around the awesome agendas that will be used during the school year!
We also visited the brand NEW school, Moorefield Station Elementary School in Ashburn today. What a beautiful school!
A great big shout out to Principal Karen Roche for displaying this awesome sign in the front lobby of the school! We are happy to be part of the Sharks family.

When you think of the word brave, a few things may come to mind. You visualize a person who has courage, strength and determination. When we think of Gavin Rupp, the word brave just doesn't seem to be enough. We were saddened by the news of 13 year old Gavin's diagnosis of terminal brain cancer. Loudoun South Eagles are extremely lucky to have such a fantastic player on their team, #15!!
Glory Days in Stone Ridge hosted a fundraiser on Tuesday, July 16th for Gavin. 10% of all proceeds were donated to the Rupp family. We are happy to announce that our team here at Kravitz Orthodontics raised over $200 that night.
We had such a great time seeing all of our patients and their families and listening to the bands that volunteered their time to support Gavin. Shout out to our patient Hunter Blasberg for doing a fantastic job performing with his band, the "First Class Losers" as well as his dad's band, "Swiftkick". They were amazing!!

Dr. Kravitz is jokingly referred to as the mayor of South Riding because of his large participation in the community. To celebrate the end of the school year, we teamed up with South Riding Proprietary and threw not one, not two, but THREE pool parties! Pizza, music, sunglasses and lots of fun were provided! South Riding really knows how to party! Shout out to our patients who showed us how to do Gangham Style-you rock!

Team KO had a BLAST at Arcola Elementary School's field day! Ariana and Angela set up the spoon relay and Brittne ran the Foursquare games.

Team KO attended the ribbon cutting ceremony for the grand opening of South Riding's new splash pool! This fun pool area is designed for younger kids with a pirate ship, water slide, water toys and of course, lounging areas for mom and dad. I don't know about you but I'm looking forward to cooling off by the pool on a hot summer day! Thank you to the South Riding Town Hall Association for inviting us to the event. Despite the weather, we had a blast!

Wow, it's hard to believe that the 2012-2013 school year is almost at an end. It's even harder to believe that the 5th graders are going to be in the middle schools!! We love that the PTA's from Little River, Buffalo Trail, Liberty, Pinebrook, Aldie, Hutchison Farm, and Arcola have organized 5th grade promotion celebrations for these amazing students as they prepare to move on up to the middle schools. It's our pleasure to be a sponsor of the celebrations and be able to be a part of the day. Thank you for thinking of us!

As we go through our day, we sometimes forget just how fortunate we really are to have a healthy, beautiful smile (complements of Dr. Kravitz, of course!) and fresh water to brush our teeth with. A few weeks ago, I received a phone call from Freedom High School's assistant principal, Mr. Fred LeMaster. He was thrilled to tell me about his upcoming mission trip to Haiti in which several students from Freedom High School helped to build a school and a feeding center while lifting the spirits of the children and families. Immediately I asked, "what can we do to help?". We all know how generous Dr. Kravitz is in the community, especially in our schools, but I believe it really takes a special person to be a humanitarian and not just a signature. We sent Mr. LeMaster and his students on their trip supplied with toothbrushes and toothpaste to deliver to the children of Port-Au-Prince.
They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. To us here at Kravitz Orthodontics, this picture is worth so much more than that. This is a reminder that in one little corner of the Earth, we filled the hearts of hundreds of children and made their smiles glow.
Mr. LeMaster-thank you for thinking of us, we will always be here to help. We are so proud of you for all that you have accomplished.
From Angela, Team Kravitz and Team KO

Mr. Halligan travels all over the country talking to middle and high school students in the hopes of helping them to understand the terrible impact that bullying can have on their fellow classmates. In addition to speaking with students, Mr. Halligan will be returning the evening of the 22nd at 7:00pm in the JML auditorium to do a presentation for parents. Families in our community have voiced great concerns with the effects of bullying and are grateful to the PTA and staff at Lunsford for this incredible presentation...and so are we.

Please visit Mr. Halligan's website to learn more about his programs: http://www.ryanpatrickhalligan.org/

Buffalo Trail Elementary PTA hosted a fun international night for parents and students last week, showcasing lots of cultures from all over the world. We really enjoyed seeing teachers participate, dressing up in garments from the countries that their ancestors came from. Musical instruments such as drums were set up in the gymnasium for children to improvise and create sounds that were unfamiliar to them. What a great learning experience!
Thank you to the PTA for your hard work and dedication during the school year! -Angela, Team Kravitz
