Fifth-graders leaving for White House trip
BURLINGTON — Five fifth-graders from Milton, Vt., are heading to Washington to help First Lady Michelle Obama plant the White House garden this spring.
School district officials said last week the invitation was prompted by the district's changes to its food service. Mrs. Obama had noted a blog post from Milton Food Service Director Steve Marinelli about the fresh entrees now available to Milton students, along with
fruits and vegetables in their new “self-serve” bars.
Mrs. Obama also liked the students' essays about how changes in the school food service helped the school and community.
The students are leaving Wednesday and will be at the White House on Thursday.MORE IN This Just InWeston Playhouse Theatre Company opened its 79th season with a slice of Vermont hick.
