(Newser) – Sasha and Malia Obama visited their mother's shortlist of Washington schools today, the AP reports. Reporters scoured the Beltway for signs of their motorcade, making a possible sighting outside the diverse Georgetown Day School. Chelsea Clinton's alma mater, Sidwell Friends, is also expected to be an option, as are DC's public schools.

"(Michelle Obama) brought the girls to visit choices for their new schools to make sure they find the right fit," a spokeswoman said. "Their move to Washington is her top priority."
