Second-grade students at Aiton Elementary School in the northeast of the city created the hearts, which are considered “craft hearts”, which now hang in the east wing. Their teacher, Alejandro Diasgranados, won DC’s 2021 Teacher of the Year award.
The first lady’s office provided the class with instructions for the design, which instructed students to use words like “love”, “peace”, “kindness” and “unity” as a guide for their designs. The 42 hearts were then chained together and hang in a window.
The class visits the White House on Monday to see their work.
The first lady’s team created another installation for the White House Valentine’s Day decoration – a wooden cutout of Commander, the White House dog, and Willow, the White House cat.
A giant heart sits between the first two pets on the North Lawn, on which is inscribed a Bible verse that reads: ‘Three things will last forever – faith, hope and love – and greatest of them is love”.
