We’ve Got Mail!

Story and pictures by Chris Thompson

Eighth grade English students wrote letters to two separate companies last month: one offered a compliment while the other tactfully lodged a complaint about a specific product. Every day students are hearing from these companies thanking them for their feedback and praising them for taking the time to write an “old school” letter. So far, Mrs. Thompson’s students have received everything from trampoline covers to t-shirts, binder organizers, stickers, and coupons! It has been eye opening to realize the power of the written word and even more interesting to note which letters have received the most responses. Which do you think garnered the most replies--the compliments or the complaints? Stop by the North hall and read for yourself!
