A Request

This Letter to the Editor appeared in Sunday’s Columbian, and I thought some of you former school teachers (or others) might want to respond.

“Hello! I am a fourth-grade student in North Carolina. In fourth grade, we research a state for our state fair, and I have chosen your state! I am very excited to learn more about the great state of Washington as I work on my report.

While we will research most of the information ourselves, we also like to get firsthand knowledge from people who live in the state. This is why I’m writing to you. I was hoping that you would be willing to send me some small items to help me learn more about the best things in your state. It could be things like postcards, maps, pictures, general information, newspaper articles, or any other items that you think might be useful.

You can mail items to me at this address: Mr. McConaughy’s class, Charlotte Latin School, 9502 Providence Road, Charlotte, NC 28277 by April 30, for our state fair on May 18.

I really appreciate your help and will do my very best to send a thank-you note to each and every person who takes the time and makes the effort to help me with this project. Thank you in advance!

Megan Morrison”
