Jan. 11, 2020
First Lady Melania Trump hosted a group of Safety Patrol students from a Florida elementary at the White House, reconnecting with them 10 months after she went to visit the school.
'A great afternoon at the @WhiteHouse, reconnecting with the wonderful students from West Gate Elementary school,' Melania's FLOTUS Instagram account said Saturday.
'Inspired by how these children are growing into the best versions of themselves. #BeBest.'
The school kids' visit occurred Friday afternoon, 10 months after Melania toured the West Gate Elementary School in Florida's Palm Beach County in March 2019. Her office said the visit was part of Melania's Be Best campaign, as the school has a special program designed to eliminate classroom bullying.
The new Instagram post featured a series of photos from the visit, among them, a group shot in which a smiling Melania is seen standing among 11 children wearing reflective sashes and white Be Best hats.
Other photos from Friday's White House visit show Melania handing out white bags - bearing Be Best branding - to the children and also signing a photo of herself walking down a West Gate Elementary School hallway during her March visit.
In a separate Instagram post, the FLOTUS account also shared a video of the children as they were toured around the White House by staffers.
'It was a joy to greet Safety Patrol students from West Gate Elementary school as they toured the @whitehouse yesterday!' the FLOTUS account captioned the video.
Melania's trip to the school in March was unannounced and no members of the media were with her. Instead, her office provided a read out of her visit and photos of her with students were posted on social media.
'Thank you West Gate Elementary School for letting me join you in your morning classroom discussions. Education should include not only academics, but also a firm foundation for understanding our own feelings & those of our peers,' Melania tweeted after the visit.
At the time, Melania was in Florida, at Mar-a-Lago, with son Barron during his spring break. Later in the day, she met with Fabiana Rosales de Guaido, the wife of Venezuelan opposition leader and U.S.-recognized acting president Juan Guaido.
