AHCA needs an Alternate Delegate to the Neighborhood Conservation Advisory Committee (NCAC). Help Arlington Heights get its fair share of funding for neighborhood improvements, such as streetlight replacements and improvements, sidewalk repair, street and intersection enhancements, tree planting, greenspace improvement, neighborhood signage, and other enhancements. You'll get to attend monthly meetings with County planners and delegates from neighborhoods around the County to plan and decide how neighborhood conservation funds should be allotted and spent. We thank Eileen Janas for stepping up to be our new NC Delegate as of May 2016. NCAC allows us to appoint an Alternate also. If interested, please contact Molly Calkins at firstname.lastname@example.org, or any member of the Executive Committee.
AHCA's Social Chair is also open. Interested in planning our annual picnic this summer, and/or Halloween Parade this fall? We have the funds, but need a Social Chair volunteer to organize the events. If interested, please contact Molly Calkins at email@example.com, or any member of the Executive Committee.
-- Thank you, Molly Calkins, president

2 Va. elementary schools earn national distinction
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Two Virginia elementary schools are being recognized for their achievements.
The state Department of Education says Patrick Henry Elementary in Arlington County and High Point Elementary in Washington County have been named as Virginia's two 2014-2015 National Title I Distinguished Schools.
Representatives from the schools will be recognized by the National Association of State Title I Directors during the organization's annual conference in February in Salt Lake City.
Officials say the schools were selected from the 40 high- achieving Title I schools honored by the Virginia Board of Education in October.
Patrick Henry Elementary was selected for exceeding federal annual measurable objectives for two consecutive school years. High Point Elementary was chosen for its efforts to close achievement gaps among student subgroups over two consecutive years.
On November 18, 2014, we sent a letter to Arlington County Board stating the resolution unanimously approved at our quarterly meeting on Wednesday, November 12, 2014:
