FIRST LADY MICHELLE OBAMA VISITS WATKINS FOODPRINTS CLASS
Watkins had a very special guest in 5th grade FoodPrints class on February 25, 2016 — First Lady Michelle Obama! The First Lady’s visit was to highlight FoodPrints and all of the amazing work that goes on at the Cluster. Through the First Lady’s “Let’s Move” initiative and all of the important work that is done through the White House Kitchen Garden, we are very lucky to have a First Lady that takes such a special interest in healthy eating and organic gardening.
