So concerned about these changes, he voiced his displeasure to his second grade teacher, Margaret Cerami, who suggested he learn more about the lunch changes, and perhaps, write a letter to the person responsible for the changes, First Lady Michelle Obama.
What began as an expression of displeasure turned into a valuable lesson about English, letter writing, nutrition as well as civics.
Wanting to get to the bottom of this school lunch situation, Trip followed through on Cerami's suggestion. He went home, spoke with his parents, Ricky and Katie Klibert, about the matter, then proceeded to dictate a letter to his mom. He then copied it in his own handwriting in a letter to the First Lady. Here is what he said:
Dear Mrs. Obama,
Thank you for trying to make my school lunch better, but you have ruined Taco Tuesday. Please bring back the old taco shell. I miss them. Also, the pizza is terrible. If you would like to try the new tacos, I will buy you lunch.
