Dear people of the great state of Kansas:

Hello! I am a fourth grade student in North Carolina. In fourth grade, we do state reports and I have chosen your state! I am very excited to learn more about the great state of Kansas as I work on my report!

Most of the information that we get for our reports will be from books and websites. We also like to get information from people who live in the state, too. This is why I am writing to you. I was hoping that you would be willing to send me some items to help me learn more about the best things in your state. It could be things like postcards, maps, pictures, souvenirs, general information, this newspaper clipping, or any other items that would be useful. You can mail items to:

Mrs. Smith’s Class

Charlotte Latin School

9502 Providence Road

Charlotte, NC 28277

I really appreciate your help!
