From the DCPS Weekly High Five, CLICK HERE to read the full article. City Year corps members participated at Garfield Elementary School where a team of corps members are serving full-time as tutors, mentors, and role models.
On behalf of DC Public Schools, I would like to thank you for participating in our Annual Beautification Day. This year 4,100 of you from organizations and communities across the DC metro area beautified 105 public schools. In addition to cleaning, painting and gardening, some of you also helped our teachers set up classrooms and unpack boxes.
Without your participation, Beautification Day would not have been such a success. We hope that you continue your involvement in our local schools throughout the year as a volunteer. Every hour of this time is much appreciated, and well worth it in the lives of our students. Thank you.
