First Lady Michelle Obama writes absence note for 1st grader

NBC Philadelphia– Michelle Martin and her 6-year-old daughter Gianna were among the guests who got to meet First Lady Michelle Obama during her visit to the National Constitution Center on Wednesday. Attending the event however meant that Gianna, a first grader at Ad Prima Charter School in Philadelphia, would have to miss her reading final. So little Gianna went up to the First Lady and made a special request.

“I said, ‘can you please write me a note?’” said Gianna. “I said to write it about me missing my finals.”

The First Lady agreed and wrote a letter stating the following:

Dear Ms. McGrail,

Thank you for allowing Gianna Martin to miss her finals to come hear me speak. She seems like a lovely young lady. And thank you for educating our kids.

All the best,

Michelle Obama

“One thing I’ve always told my kids is the only thing they can say is “no” and “no” is not going to kill you so you might as well ask,” said Martin. “I think she’ll take a look at this note when she’s older and show it to her granddaughters. This is a piece of history that she’ll have forever.”
