Michelle Obama and Ellen DeGeneres Give Huge Gifts To DC Elementary School
I absolutely love my forever First Lady Michelle Obama and Ellen DeGeneres! The two, in partnership with Apple, recently gave back to an elementary school in DC with some much-needed school supplies!
In a special trip to Randle Highlands Elementary School in Southeast, Washington, D.C., First Lady Obama shared more about the school and its students and staff Principal Kristie Edwards revealed that a majority of the students are in the foster care system or are homeless. However, without missing a beat, she and the teachers work to provide these kids love, a safe space, and the quality education they need and deserve. They also provide other services like school supplies, free lunch, a garden, and a washer and dryer at the school if children need clean clothes.
Through Ellen’s Greatest Night of Giveaways, Mrs. Obama surprised the principal and teachers with $100,000 for whatever supplies they need. The school also received a new basketball court, new Apple computers and laptops for their computer lab, and new iPads for ALL 350 STUDENTS!!!! What?!
I used to pass by this school all the time to get to church or my grandmother’s house not too far away. I would hear about the great work happening there and how these teachers are working to empower these young people. I’m so happy to see them receiving this huge Christmas blessing!
