Yesterday First Lady Michelle Obama visited Mount Pleasant's own Bancroft Elementary School. Bancroft is located at Newton and 18th Sts NW. Obama had been working with the students on the White House's vegetable garden and decided to return the favor at the school's garden. Her remarks were quite nice and so was the gesture in general. A typical public school in the District with some pretty extraordinary students who had a really swell Friday. Pretty neat story. Hopefully the Prez and the First Lady keep up the DC public appearances. Oddly, this story was overshadowed by a near simultaneous visit by Barack Obama to Five Guys in Southeast.
