McLean As part of their study of the 50 states, third-graders at The Langley School in
McLean reached out to small towns across America, and they received a numerous responses. Each student researched a specific state and placed letters to the editor in local newspapers in that state asking residents to send items to help them learn more. Envelopes and boxes from people of Alaska, Iowa, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nebraska, New Jersey, West Virginia, and more have arrived at The Langley School filled with letters, postcards, maps, flags, pictures, jewelry, rocks, fossils, and souvenirs. Langley students have a more in-depth understanding of our country thanks to this project and the response of citizens.
