A group of Somerville middle schoolers will make their second visit to the White House in as many months next week.

On April 4, five students from the Arthur D. Healey School were invited to the White House to help Michelle Obama plant vegetables and other crops in her kitchen garden on the South Lawn.

The students have been invited back to help harvest the crops they planted. Fifth graders Ariana Docanto, Gabriela Lopez Arias, Sarah Sweeting, Lana Popovic, and Brian Chan will head back to the White House Tuesday morning to spend the day with the First Lady, and return on Tuesday night, according to an announcement from Somerville schools.
