Fifty Trees For 50 Years Planting Monday — In honor of Reston’s 50th anniversary, Friends of Reston will give 50 trees to the community to be planted on Arbor Day, Monday, April 7 from 9:30 a.m. until 12 p.m., rain or shine. [Reston Association]

Fewer Virginia SOL Tests —  A bill passed in Richmond last month and signed by the governor Friday cuts the number of standardized tests that third-graders take in half, eliminating the social studies and science tests. School districts will be required to develop alternative assessments that are project-based to show that students are learning the same material.

Fill Those Potholes — Spring is here, but a few traces of winter remain. One annoying one: potholes. Potholes are created when moisture seeps into the pavement, freezes, expands and then thaws, says the Virginia Department of Transportation. Who to call with a heads up depends on who maintains the road. Most primary and secondary roads are maintained by VDOT. Call them at 1-800-FOR-ROAD (1-800-367-7623).
