The Congressional Schools of Virginia, located at 3229 Sleepy Hollow Rd., Falls Church, has been celebrating its 75th anniversary this year with a series of events commemorating when they opened in 1939 as the Tiny Tots Preschool. As part of the celebration, The Congressional Schools of Virginia are hosting their first annual Service Day next Saturday, Nov. 1, from 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Service Day will feature six different organizations that volunteers can serve, including Sleepy Hollow Elementary School and Inova Fairfax Children’s Hospital. To kick off the service day, Elisa Lueck, region 2 manager for Fairfax County Department of Neighborhood and Community Services, will give an inspirational speech.

The celebration will continue through April 25, 2015, when the Congressional Schools of Virginia hosts their 75th anniversary gala.
