All eyes were set on Sidwell Friends School in Washington, D.C. on Monday with people trying to find out what U.S. President-elect Barack Obama’s two daughters would do on their first day there.
Even though the media tried to record the historic occasion, there is not much of information on how Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7, spent their day.
One of the students has revealed that Malia seemed happy when he saw her in the cafeteria, after the lunch bell rang.
"She seemed to fit in like any other student. It looked like she made friends on her first day. She seemed very happy, she was skipping and smiling, she already had a lot of friends around her," the Washington, Post quoted the student, who declined to be identified, as saying.
Malia is a fifth-grader at the school''s Northwest Washington campus on Wisconsin Avenue, and Sasha a second-grader at the Bethesda campus not far up the road.
The paper has revealed that both girls will spend their days with one teacher, except for separate science and physical education instruction.
