Campbell Elementary Upgrades — “Arlington School Board members in coming weeks are slated to approve a $3.26 million contract for improvements to entry security and kitchen facilities at Campbell Elementary School. Proving again that we live in inflationary times, school officials originally estimated the cost at $2.75 million, but none of the responsible bidders came close to that figure.” [Gazette Packet]

Addressing Food Insecurity — “Food insecurity is a critical issue across the country and in many parts of the D.C. region, so to help one Arlington County community came together to help feed those in need. On Saturday, a handful of volunteers sporting winter clothes, safety vests and face masks filled the front yard of the Mount Olive Baptist Church in Arlington with 200 bags full of fresh groceries.” [Fox 5]

Resolution Honors Braylon Meade — “The General Assembly has memorialized the life of Braylon Meade, a Washington-Liberty High School senior who died in an auto accident last November. Meade ‘brought joy to others with his kindness, generosity, compassion and sense of humor, and he touched countless lives in the community through his commitment to servant-leadership,’ noted the resolution, patroned by Del. Rip Sullivan with support of the entire Arlington delegation.” [Gazette Leader]

Local Students Shine at Track Meet — “Four athletes from Arlington high schools won individual titles at the girls and boys 6D North Region indoor track and field championships held last week in Prince George’s County. Washington-Liberty had the most champions with three.” [Gazette Leader]

About That Pop-Up — For the first time ARLnow is running a pop-up email signup form today. We plan to activate it for a day or two at a time on occasion, as it is important that we reduce our dependency on social platforms and search engines for half of our traffic. If you close it it should go away and stay away on that browser (until our next email drive).

It’s Wednesday — Cloudy with possible light rain in the morning. High of 54 and low of 42. Sunrise at 6:52 am and sunset at 5:55 pm. []
