a year at Cherrydale School, a year at the old
Ballston School, and then VC'-L opened in 1925.
The first Senior class graduated in 1927. A year-
book called Q'The Virginian" was published that
year. The next year, the name was changed to
"Blue and Grayf, Then from 1929 ,till 1932 you
sponsored the annual, and the book made
You are responsible for starting the Christmas
baskets that the homerooms give to needy
families, for the pictures of Wvashington and

In this way the four year terms are staggered.
From the election in November until the
official installation of the new members in
january, the old and new members met together,
working jointly for the benefit of the schools.
The Arlington County School Board is the
only school board in Virginia which is elected
directly by the voters. Thus the school system is
closely related to the people it serves, and is a
definite community project.
