Another request from an Illinois student

October 29, 2013 - Leah Sherman

A few weeks ago, I posted a letter from a 3rd-grade student named Ryan from Illinois, who asked readers to send postcards telling about their home communities.

I love that children are still learning this way. And I'm guessing that autumn is the season to learn about the United States for elementary school students in Illinois, because a similar letter landed on my desk today.

So, if you didn't get a chance to send a note to Ryan's class (or even if you did), here's another opportunity:

This request comes from Aviston, Ill., and includes a handwritten note (part block letters, part cursive — I'm happy to see handwriting is still being taught) which reads: “Please print this letter in your editorial section. Thank you. Love, Jovani.”

The attached, typed letter from Jovani's teacher states: “The Fourth Grade at Aviston Elementary, located in southern Illinois, is learning about the United States and the different environments, climates, resources, and highlights found in each region. The kids in the class thing it would be fun to receive postcards, souvenirs, resources, or any information about our great country from each of the 50 states.

“We hope that people who read this letter will be interested in mailing our class items pertaining to their state.”

“Our address: 4th Grade @ Aviston Elementary, 350 South Hull Street, Aviston, Illinois 62216

“A sincere 'Thank You' to anyone who is able to contribute! We appreciate the excitement you will add to our learning experience. Mrs. Niemeyer”
