Third-grader at The New School gets letter back from President Obama

Letter was part of class assignment

CINCINNATI -- A Tri-State third-grader is hearing from the President of the United States, all because she followed through on a class assignment.

The letter from President Obama was an eye-opener for Anneliese Brouwer and her classmates at The New School Montessori in North Avondale. She sent the letter last year and held her expectations in check.

"I didn't think I was going to get a letter back," she said.

Then, on the first day of school, she got her response.

Watch the video above to see what President Obama wrote to Brouwer and why some of her classmates wish they'd followed through like she did.
