FLOTUS to visit Silver Spring school
First lady Michelle Obama has invited Mexico's first lady to tour a Silver Spring elementary school honored for teaching healthy living.
Obama and Margarita Zavala, the wife of Mexican President Felipe Calderon, are scheduled to visit the New Hampshire Estates Elementary School in Silver Spring on Wednesday. Many students at the school come from Central and South America.
Last year, the school won the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Healthier U.S. School Challenge Silver Award, which rewards schools that promote nutrition and physical activity. Educators there teach ways to maintain health as part of the physical education program.
