Mayor Bowser joined second graders at Watkins Elementary School in Eastern Market for a reading session. After a conversation on the importance of public service, Mayor Bowser read, Grace for President, by Kelly DiPucchio – a story about a student who decides to participate in her school’s mock election when she realizes there has never been a female president.
Mayor Bowser also reminded students to get involved in this years’ DC Public Library Summer Reading Program. All kids over age five and teens who reach their summer reading goal will win two tickets to a Washington Nationals baseball game.
