Many, many thanks for the postcards

I just wanted to thank all the artists who took the time and money to send my students postcards. We have not gone through all of them yet. We have not sent out any yet. We will do them in the new year. My kids were all very excited and thought it was coolest thing. My parents came in for some school activities/functions and mentioned to me that they thought it was a great project. So thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you. Due to privacy issues, I cannot name my students' names here, but I can post what they wrote when I asked them to write about what they thought about being sent the postcards:

I thought the postcards they gave us today was pretty cool because they all came from different places. The one I got was from Phoenix. It was cool because we all got to say where our postcard came from.

Hi. Thanke for the postcards. It looks very cool. Someday, I would like to go visit Portland. It looks beautiful over there. It looks a little hot, but I think it is not cold that much. Thanks for the post card.

I thought some of the homemade ones were nice and put a lot of work into them. The store bought ones with the picts I thought were beautiful because the pictures on them were so nice.

Reading the notes from the kids almost made me want to be a 6th grade school teacher and have a geography lesson with postcards. Then sanity was restored and I recovered nicely. However, I think I'm going to save this info and pass it on to one of our college teachers to give to her students for when they become school teachers. It was a wonderful idea.
