First lady Melania Trump will visit an elementary school in Tulsa on Monday, according to a White House news release.

The stop in Tulsa is expected to be at “an award-winning elementary school that focuses on incorporating character education throughout its curriculum” as part of a trip promoting Trump’s initiative “Be Best,” the release said.

The initiative includes the well-being of children, online safety and opioid abuse, according to the release.

“Whether it is social media and technology or drug and alcohol abuse, children in our country and around the world are faced with many challenges,” Trump said in a news release. “Through Be Best I will continue to shine a spotlight on the well-being programs that provide children the tools and skills required for emotional, social and physical well-being and promote successful organizations, programs, and people who are helping children overcome some of the issues they face while growing up in the modern world.”

The trip will include stops in Seattle and Las Vegas, Nevada, the White House said.
