The Scene: Celebrating the success of DC Prep

October 25, 2013

Every week, one of our photographer colleagues goes to a party for a regular feature in the Sunday Style section called The Scene. This week, photojournalist Evy Mages attended a back-to-school fundraiser party for charter school network DC Prep at the Edgewood Elementary campus, which the Education Department just named a National Blue Ribbon School.
