BOARD MATTER


Timber Lane Elementary School's 50th Anniversary


April 25, 2005


Mr. Chairman:

Timber Lane Elementary School first opened its doors to the community in 1955 and will be celebrating its 50th Anniversary on May 7, 2005. In those 50 years, the school has grown into a richly diverse community where the student body represents a population from over 60 countries.

Timber Lane is the county's first school with a modified school calendar which allows students the option of attending up to 30 more days of school. The school year begins in August so that less academic regression occurs and more retention of information is experienced. Timber Lane students enjoy the benefits of a newly renovated building; and these benefits have afforded them the opportunity to learn through cutting-edge technology practices.

The faculty, parents, and community of Timber Lane are committed to increasing the emotional well-being and the academic achievement of all students, while viewing its diversity as a unique opportunity and strength that enriches and broadens the educational experiences of all students.

Celebration plans have been scheduled for May 7, 2005 and former alumni have been requested to furnish their memories of the school. Members of the community have also been invited to attend this event and more information may be obtained by contacting the school.
Therefore, I ask the Board for unanimous support in proclaiming Saturday, May 7, 2005 as "Timber Lane Elementary School Day" in Fairfax County and direct staff to prepare the proclamation that will be read at the celebration events day.

Proclamation:


WHEREAS, Timber Lane Elementary School, which has grown into a richly diverse community and is located in the Providence District, is celebrating its 50 year legacy of education and contribution to the community; and

WHEREAS, the original school opened its doors in 1955 and currently celebrates a student body that represents a population from over 60 countries; and

WHEREAS, it is the first of county schools to implement the "year-round" modified school calendar; and

WHEREAS, the faculty, parents, and community of Timber Lane are committed to increasing the emotional well-being and the academic achievement of all students, while viewing its diversity as a unique opportunity and strength that enriches and broadens the educational experiences of all students; NOW THEREFORE

BE IT RESOLVED, that the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors on behalf of all residents of the Providence District and Fairfax County, does hereby proclaim May 7, 2005, as

Timber Lane
Elementary School Day

in Fairfax County, to commemorate the 50th anniversary celebration of Timber Lane Elementary School and the legacy of education and commitment to the community.
