Glendale Middle School Ukulele Club welcomes first lady
SALT LAKE CITY — First Lady, Dr. Jill Biden got to hear Glendale Middle School’s Ukulele Club during her visit to Utah today.
At least a dozen students in the Glendale Ukulele Club played for Dr. Biden when she visited their middle school. Here they are practicing for her arrival.
The group led is by teacher Dane Hess.
Dressed in traditional Tongan clothing, student Eli Kaufusi also put a colorful lei around the first lady’s neck.
Dr. Biden then visited another class called Techniques for Tough Times, where eighth graders shared special sayings about what they find special about themselves.
Next, Dr. Biden did the assignment too, writing on the white board, “I am Jill. I am a mother, a nana, a teacher. . . who believes all students can soar!”
