Students' Field Trip to Washington Goes On. Meeting The President: Priceless.

President Obama surprises eighth graders from Altona Middle School in Longmont, CO on the South Lawn of the White House earlier today.

One of the student's parents, Shalini Schane, wrote a letter to the president on April 6 begging him to find some agreement to keep the government open for her son's 8th-grade trip to Washington. 

President Obama mentioned the letter in his remarks after reaching a deal with Congressional leaders to prevent a government shutdown.

Watch the video of the student's surprise viewing of the President.
