We all have that teacher that we remember long after we graduate. That teacher who inspired us and made us want to be better. Teachers make a difference in ways that we don't realize.

Teachers do so much on their own and with their own money.  Mary Harris is trying to make a difference at Candor Elementary School with her first grade class. One of the things that they are learning about is Geography and she's doing her annual 50 States Postcard Project.

What they want is to collect postcards from all 50 states. Do you know someone from Idaho or New Hampshire? How about Nebraska or Montana? Maybe you have a relative in Nevada or Utah.

If you know anyone that would be willing to send them a postcard from another state then Room 8 wants to hear from them. It's simple, have them send a postcard from that state to the following address:


Mrs. Harris' Class
Candor Elementary School
2 Academy Street
Candor, NY 13743

I think it's AWESOME when we can help them out in any way that we can. Let your state be heard from and help the kids learn while having fun at the same time. Can you name all 50 states?
