A letter from the First Lady

A few months ago, John Greenleaf Whittier third-grader Valentina S. sent President and First Lady Obama a personal invite to her house for a traditional Italian dinner. The First Couple were unable to accept the invitation, but Michelle Obama did send a reply thanking Valentina and asked her to keep up the hard work in school and to stay active in her community. Mrs. Obama also sent a picture of herself and the family’s dog, Bo.

In her letter, Valentina talked about her Colombian and Italian heritage and her love of animals (especially Bo) and sent them a picture of her class. Valentina is pictured here with her teacher Beverly Alston and the letter from Mrs. Obama.
