A First Lady, A Super and A Secretary!

I spent the afternoon at APS’ historic Booker T. Washington High School with First Lady Michelle Obama, U.S. Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan and our fabulous Washington students and staff.

We are so excited that they chose to launch their fifth annual back-to-school bus tour in our district. What a great day!

Thank you Mrs. Obama for reminding us that when it comes to success in school, “attendance matters,” and that students should always “reach higher” beyond their circumstances to achieve success in school and life.
