— President Barack Obama is launching the three-day celebration of his second inaugural with a service project at a Washington area school.

The president, along with first lady Michelle Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha, arrived at Burrville Elementary School shortly before noon on Saturday. The first family is joining 500 hundred volunteers helping spruce up the school.

The volunteer project is part of the larger National Day of Service Obama started in 2009, ahead of his first inaugural. The day is meant to honor Martin Luther King, Jr.

Obama publicly takes the oath of office Monday, the same day the nation marks King’s birthday.
