Congratulations to Sophie McKinney, a 5th grade student in Mrs. Spangle’s class from JGE, who won a wonderful trip to Washington, D.C.  She joined First Lady, Michelle Obama, and guests at a special State Dinner.  All the winners, between the ages of 8-12 from each state, created a healthy recipe using the four food groups. Sophie was able to hug and meet the First Lady, White House chefs, eat a delicious three course meal, and visit the White House vegetable garden on the south lawn. President Obama made a surprise visit to speak to the children about leadership. Lastly, two songs from the musical The Lion King were performed by the cast.
