Arizona calling...

To the Editor:

I am a fifth grade teacher in Phoenix, Arizona. My students are learning about North America and each one picked a state or province to do a "year-long" report on.

To make this study more exciting, I like to bring citizens from the actual state or province "into our classroom." It is my hope that you'll print my students' letter so that the people in your community will read it. This is a project that has brought amazing results each year. In addition to the enormous amount of responses we've received, over ten readers have actually visited our classroom while in town for business or vacation.

I picked your town and newspaper after reading a profile of it at our county library. Please consider putting us in print. Thank you!
