An elementary school in Silver Spring, Md., is getting a visit by not one but two first ladies.

Michelle Obama and Margarita Zavala, the wife of Mexican President Felipe Calderon, are scheduled to visit the New Hampshire Estates Elementary School in Silver Spring this Wednesday. Obama and Zavala will meet with students, many of which have a Central or South American background.

Last year, the school won the USDA's Healthier US School Challenge Silver Award. The school won the award for its involvement in promoting nutrition and physical activity, a cause Michelle Obama has pushed with her campaign against childhood obesity.

Last month, the elementary school's students sent pictures of a butterfly garden they built to a sister school in Mexico. The school in Mexico is near a monarch butterfly migration path.

The visit won't be the first time Obama travels with Zavala. Last month, both first ladies visited schools and museums in Mexico City.
