Share South Dakota with student
Dear editor and citizens of South Dakota,
I am pleased to inform you that I chose South Dakota for my semester-long project. I am in the 7th grade at Goff Junior High School in Pawtucket, Rhode Island.
Our project consists of a written report, an oral report, and poster project. I am asking that you please publish this letter in your paper so your readers could help me with my project.
Readers, please send anything regarding South Dakota to me. Postcards or pictures or anything else you could send. All items will be sent to my school. Thank you for your help.

(From teacher Brian Gilmore:
Pawtucket, RI is an urban school district founded in the birthplace of the mill industry, with the first water-powered mill. Slater Mill is not more than a five-minute walk from our school. Like any urban school district, Pawtucket has its share of challenges. Roughly about 80% of our students qualify for the free or reduced lunch program. However, Goff Junior High School is the only high-performing junior high school in the district. Students take an active interest in school and responsibility for their studies. By publishing their letter and hopefully your readers’ response, they will be able to produce a written report, poster board and oral presentation.)
