Elementary school kids in Illinois want to learn about Asheville

The editors at Xpress received an exceptionally cute plea in our mailbox this week from a group of fourth-graders in Illinois. The kids are learning about the 50 states, and they hope that citizens throughout the country will help them by mailing small items such as postcards, souvenirs and various resources.

The letter reads:

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 think 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.
