In the weeks before the first day of classes, DC Public Schools holds its annual Beautification Day to help prep their area campuses for the coming school year. Liz and I organized groups of co-workers to join in the activities at two nearby schools. 

More than 30 folks came out to help prepare Francis Stevens Elementary for the first day of classes.
