D.C. Beautification Day works to spruce up D.C. Public Schools

Thousands of volunteers turned out this Saturday for the annual D.C. Public Schools "Beautification Day" event in an effort to “spruce up” D.C. public school buildings ahead of the first day of school.

D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray, with Lanier standing behind him, addressed a crowd in Orr Elementary's gymnasium and said, "what you see here, and we're seeing it all across the city, is a continuing building of pride at the school level."
