Mid-Pacific Institute middle school students got quite the treat when former President Barack Obama sent a photo of him posing with the kite they made just for him.
It was all part of Kite Day in April 2016. The students designed the kite with the former president’s face on the body of a super hero and then launched it over the school’s football field that day.
They later sent the kite, along with a message and their autographs, to Obama.
His response: The photo and personalized letter letting them know he believes in them.
The photo and letter are now on display at the school alongside a photo of a Calvin Coolidge kite students designed in 1924.
The next Kite Day will be April 28 at 9:45 a.m. on the school’s football field.
