Pine Spring Elementary School's 50th Anniversary
May 9, 2005

Mr. Chairman:

I am honored to inform the Board and the residents of Fairfax County of the 50th Anniversary celebration of Pine Spring Elementary School. The school is located between Route 50 and 29 and snuggly surrounded by the beautiful Pine Spring community in Providence District. Pine Spring first opened its doors to students in September 1955 to included children in grades 1-7 to accommodate the baby boomers after World War II. Today, Pine Spring Elementary School boasts richness in its student body diversity that includes students representing 25 countries that speak in 14 languages. Pine Spring was also the only school in Fairfax County to house a program for the visually impaired.

Pine Spring also boasts many awards notable from Fairfax County Public Schools Gold Award of Excellence, Milken National Educators Award, Commendation from the General Assembly, and Governor's Certificate of Recognition and many other prestigious awards and recognitions. I commend and applaud the many successes accomplished by the students, staff and community of Pine Spring Elementary School.

Therefore, I ask the Board for unanimous support in proclaiming Saturday, June 8, 2005 as "Pine Spring Elementary School Day" in Fairfax County and direct staff to prepare the attached proclamation that will be read at the celebration events day.
