Because of your hard work and because of your hard work, President Barack Obama who appointed
the Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan, is going to acknowledge your hard work and I'll
turn it over to the secretary.
Thank you. Who served the Easter Egg of the White House? Did anyone ever heard of that?
Who would like to go to that next week? Well, guess what? We have 2,000 tickets here we're
going to give to the mayor. It's not really for the mayor.
It's for all of you.
And this is--we're giving out 4,000 tickets to school children in this area, but 2,000
here to the DC Public School. And since you guys have been working so hard, and the Chancellor
Rhee and the Mayor Fenty are doing such a great job leading this, we love how all the
schools in DC are getting better. So we have 2,000 tickets to give out to kids around the
city. And I hope [INDISTINCT] my son and daughter.
All right. Yeah.
But this is really important. We have kids from all over DC come to the White House.
I think this is the most tickets that have gone out to the area in 130 years. It’s
a big, big deal so you guys can all come. Who would like to come next Monday to the
White House for an Easter Egg hunt?
We’ll be there.
I'll look forward--I'll look forward to seeing you there, all right.
All right. So, here's the 2,000 tickets for the mayor. Give yourself a round of applause.
Anybody want to take a picture? Ms. Barbara?
Get over there now.
All right. Now, this goes to the Chancellor.
What do you say? What do we say to the Chancellor?
Hope to see you next weekend.
Thank you for the hard work, guys.
See you next weekend.
You have been doing a great job. We're so proud of you.
Yeah. Happy Easter, everyone. Keep up the great work.
Have a great day in school today.
