School counselors have the power to teach our kids what it means to go high when others go low. Congratulations to our 2018 School Counselor of the Year Kirsten Perry and all of the finalists! #SCOY18

Ellen, you make 60 look so good! Congratulations on yet another milestone. You make us all laugh so much, but you also warm our hearts. Thanks to you, the world is a more loving, welcoming, and joyous place for all of our children. And for that, @BarackObama and I couldn’t be prouder to call you our friend.

It’s because of school counselors like Kirsten Perry that our young people dream a little bigger, and reach a little higher. Kirsten, I can’t wait to honor you and your colleagues from across the country at the School Counselor of the Year Ceremony next week. #ReachHigher

Thank you @BarackObama for the beautiful flowers waiting for me in the office this morning. You’re my best friend, biggest fan, and getting notes and flowers from you will never get old. And to the many people from around the country who sent cards and posted on social media, you have no idea how much we love hearing from you. I know birthdays can sometimes be bittersweet (54!), but your messages of hope, generosity, and warmth have always reminded me how lucky and blessed we are.

From the very beginning, @BarackObama and I knew the Obama Presidential Center had to be on the South Side. It’s where we met and where our girls were born. It’s home. We've been designing the Center as a place that inspires young people and gives them the tools they need to find their voices, then go out and change the world. It will be a place to learn, connect, and have some fun. The South Side will finally have a sledding hill, a vegetable garden like the one we had at the White House, and other attractions for Chicagoans and visitors from around the world to enjoy. Follow the @ObamaFoundation for updates, and let us know what you think!

It's been an amazing two days here in Chicago, and I want to give a shoutout to our inspiring community leaders and to all of YOU who have been part of the #ObamaSummit. Tonight, @BarackObama and I were joined by some of our friends, including @ChanceTheRapper, to celebrate the South Side. Thank you!

I'll be fighting for girls' education for the rest of my life, and I'm so grateful to my partners in this work—the extraordinary leaders at the #ObamaSummit.
