U.S. first lady Michelle Obama with the 3rd grade students at the Ferebee Hope elementary school in Washington May 13, 2009.

WASHINGTON First lady Michelle Obama is telling third-grade students that they can help the president by working hard and never quitting.

The first lady visited Ferebee Hope Elementary School in the District of Columbia on Wednesday and read the story "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" to about 18 students. Afterward she talked about how to cope productively with the frustrations of a bad day.

Mrs. Obama told the students that everybody has bad days, including herself and President Barack Obama. But she asked the students never to quit when things get hard.

She visited the school to meet with leaders from the drop-out prevention organization Communities In Schools, which provides individual tutoring for the third graders she met.
