Arlington Resident Acquitted of Murder — Christopher Deedy, a State Department special agent from Arlington, has been acquitted of murder after a second trial in Hawaii. Deedy maintained that he acted in self-defense when he shot and killed a Hawaiian man in a Waikiki McDonald’s in 2011. [Associated Press]

Disgraced Principal Almost Took APS Job — Robin Toogood II resigned as an elementary school principal in Manassas City this summer following accusations that he exaggerated the credentials in his resume. Two years ago, Toogood was hired to be principal at Arlington’s Drew Model School, but his offer was rescinded when a group of parents “did basic Internet searches that brought up discrepancies in his record.” [Washington Post]

Best Grilled Cheese in Arlington? — DCist says Clarendon’s Galaxy Hut (2711 Wilson Blvd) has the best grilled cheese of any brick-and-mortar eatery in Arlington and is “one of the last remaining reasons to ever visit Arlington.” The website also lauded The Big Cheese food truck, a regular Arlington visitor, as being one of the best grilled cheese purveyors in the D.C. area. [DCist]

Educational Associations Endorse Sullivan — The Virginia Educational Association, along with the Arlington and Fairfax education associations, have endorsed Democrat Rip Sullivan in 48th District House of Delegates special election. “As the proud parent of four public school graduates, and as a graduate of our public school system myself, I understand the critical role education plays in developing a diverse economy and in developing our future leaders,” Sullivan said in a statement.

Sullivan Faced Discrimination Lawsuit — Republicans are pouncing on Democratic House of Delegates candidate Rip Sullivan over his role in a lawsuit against his D.C. law firm, Reed Smith. Sullivan was the supervisor of an associate at the firm who sued alleging wrongful termination and disability discrimination. “Recent revelations show that while Rip Sullivan talks about equal rights in the work place and treating women with respect and fairness — his actions and an employment lawsuit prove otherwise,” said Arlington GOP Chairman Matt Wavro, in a statement.

Synetic Theater Camps are a wildly fun, highly accessible choice for young people who love moving, playing games, and making memories. Registration is open now for Summer Camps (sessions June 20-August 25) and there are even a few spots left for Spring Break camp, April 3­-7.

Located in National Landing, these performance-based camps are designed for students of all ages – no theater or performance experience required.

Led by professional teaching artists, campers learn acting, movement, and technical theater skills through the lens of Physical Theater. Physical Theater incorporates acting, movement, dance, mime, and acrobatics. If you’ve seen a Cirque du Soleil performance, you’ll find many similarities.

Most first-time campers are new to the performing arts, and teaching artists are well-versed in engaging students at all levels. Parents and campers report that one of the best parts of Synetic is the community, with many families returning year after year because they feel a strong sense of belonging.
