(Corrected at 1:47 p.m. on June 29) Adams Morgan’s ANC 1C is asking for online feedback on two proposals to modernize the Marie Reed Elementary School at 2201 18th Street NW.
The 2016 D.C. budget will allow the school to undergo a complete modernization over the next two years.
In the first proposal, the existing building would be reused and expanded for additional recreational space and health services.
In the second, only the eastern half of the existing building would be reused and expanded, and a new school and recreation center would be constructed on the southern end of the campus.
Residents can choose between the two concepts by voting online.
ANC 1C commissioners will tally the community votes and take final community comments at the commission’s next meeting on Wednesday, July 8 at 6 p.m. at Mary’s Center, 2355 Ontario Road NW.

The competition will run from 11:45 am to 3 pm and will be followed with bar specials in Adams Morgan.
Teams of four to six people will compete for glory, beer specials and bragging rights, as well as prizes. The best team, worst team and best-costumed team will receive prizes from partners including Balance Gym, Pleasant Pops, Vita Coco, KIND Snacks and others. Other partners include Millie & Al’s, Grand Central, The Blaguard, Tryst, Kickball365, Landshark Lager, Captain Cookie and the Milk Man, Los Lobos Burrito Cart and more.
Individual or team registration is open for $25/participant. Limited individual registration will be open the day of for an additional $10/participant. Marie Reed is at 2201 18th Street NW.
One hundred percent of the net proceeds from the event will benefit Yachad and its young professionals network, Yachad United. Yachad’s mission is to bring communities together by preserving affordable homes and revitalizing neighborhoods throughout the DC area. Yachad United needs to raise money in order to complete two large scale repair projects throughout the year. Not coincidentally, one of the repair projects will take place at Marie Reed Elementary School.
