Students from Greenview Upper Elementary School had the "time of their lives", according to building Principal Reginald Holland on Tuesday, October 14, 2014, as they had the opportunity to visit First Lady Michelle Obama at the White House. The visit is a result of the SEL Schools participation in the federal Farm-to-Fork Program, in partnership with the USDA, the Cuyahoga County Board of Health and Red Basket Farms, which supplies fresh food to students in the district.
First Lady Obama invited the Greenview students to help harvest the official White House garden and then to dine with her and students from several other schools from across the country, as part of her Let’s Move initiative. The meal was prepared in part by the SEL Schools’ very own manager of food services Kevin Needham. The students were also joined by Mr. Holland and sixth grade teacher and garden club advisor, Mardea Hunt. Participating students included: Arthur Bargainer, Rheigna Gullatte, Paul Miozzi, Myla Montgomery and Hana Naghmouchi.
The SEL Schools sends the most sincere message of gratitude to First Lady Michelle Obama, for the opportunity our students had to spend an afternoon at the White House.
