First lady Melania Trump and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos will spend Monday visiting middle school students in Michigan to draw attention to the White House's National Bullying Prevention Month initiative.
The two will stop by Orchard Lake Middle School in West Bloomfield, Mich., to mark the start of the "Week of Inclusion." Trump's focus as first lady is denouncing bullying.
"As part of my ongoing commitment to the overall well-being of children, I am looking forward to today's visit," Trump said in a statement. "By our own example, we must teach children to be good stewards of the world they will inherit. We need to remember that they are always watching and listening. It is our responsibility to take the lead in teaching children the values of empathy and communication that are at the core of kindness, mindfulness, integrity, and leadership."
Trump and DeVos will sit in on the school's Viking Huddle Class, a sixth-grade classroom that uses social-emotional learning practices.
They will also talk with seventh- and eighth-grade students in the cafeteria about including students at lunchtime and other opportunities in order to prevent others' feeling alone.
