The Be Best event also included a screening of the film "Wonder," and approximately 30 students watched the film with Melania.
It tells the story of a boy with a facial deformity and how he coped with bullying at school. After the screening, Melania addressed the students:
"As you may know, October is National Bullying Prevention Month, and I encourage everybody to be kind to each other, to treat each other with respect in everyday life and social media."
A situation unfolded online when Melania's spokesperson Stephanie Grisham "trolled" one of the Flotus's critics online.
Grisham tagged Andy Lassner, producer on the Ellen Show, in a tweet, and said that FLOTUS is hosting children at the White House to talk about kindness. She asked if she should save him a seat.

Lassner said earlier this week that he is more afraid of "another Melania" enter the States than illegals in a caravan. Lassner replied to Grisham's tweets:
"Yes!! Will she be talking about how she pushed her husband's theory that our first black president was born in Kenya? What about her 'I don't care, do you jacket' worn while babies were being ripped away from parents at the border? What time should I arrive? Is it dressy?"

Earlier this year, Melania broke the internet when she visited one of the migrant detention centres wearing a jacket that read: "I really don't care, do you?"
Lassner has since deleted his tweets but screengrabs can be seen here.
She was slammed online for the insensitive gesture, and many pointed out that it wasn't the best choice of outfit to wear while visiting children who were forcibly removed from their parents.
Critics of Melania also took to her tweet with one user saying "using children as props is not being best," and another adding: "I'm thinking you should make the Donald watch the movie."
Thank you to the students & teachers from @DPApcs who joined me & @BetsyDeVosED to watch the movie #Wonder in the @WhiteHouse theater today. What a wonderful message! #BeBest #BullyingPreventionMonth #ChooseKind pic.twitter.com/rdGjOfcnCm— Melania Trump (@FLOTUS) October 24, 2018
Another user said they would never allow their children to go near Melania while another said Donald is the one who needs a lesson in cyberbullying.
