mailing letterParsley Elementary launched "Parsley Postal Pals" in March of 2005. This program gave students the opportunity to write and receive letters through our in-school postal service. Students, as part of a class language arts lesson, or just for fun, wrote letters to each other or to staff members. The letters were addressed using standard procedures and were placed in the mailbox outside the front office. Fourth grade students applied for positions on the postal team and handled all the jobs responsible for the collection, cancellation, sorting and delivery of mail. 

Within the classroom, students were exposed to and practiced real-life skills such as writing various types of letters (i.e. friendly, persuasive, thank you, etc.) and addressing envelopes. Parents were even invited to send letters to their children by dropping them in the mailbox when visiting our campus.

See an example on how to write a friendly letter and how to address an envelope.
