Power (School) Lunch!

October 20, 2009

An otherwise ordinary meal of grilled cheese and tater tots turned into one of the most coveted power lunches for students at Viers Mill Elementary School in Silver Spring when they got a surprise visit from POTUS himself! According to the WaPo, “students shook with excitement and some started crying at the sight of their famous guest.” Apparently he was on his way home from parent-teacher conferences at Sidwell Friends School where his two daughers are enrolled.

The President spent most of his 30 minute visit shaking hands and talking about what they’ve been reading.  He also put in a plug for the Harry Potter books (which he read with daughter Malia) and for the book and the movie “Where the Wild Things Are” (which happens to be POTUS’ favorite book while growing up).  

Cutest quote award goes to a little girl named Maya — who said that “this is the best day of my life …. in school.”
