Thank you for publishing a story about the Mascoutah Middle School bus that got into a car accident a few days ago. I am a student at that school, and I know some friends who were on that bus. Thank you for putting the story in your newspaper and on your website. It helped us find out what happened. I am also very happy that my friends are OK.
I also am writing you this letter because I am working on a Boy Scout award called the “Communication Merit Badge.” I have to send a “letter to the editor” of a newspaper as a requirement to complete the badge.
Thank you very much for reading this letter.
Matthew Thompson, 6th grade student at Mascoutah Middle School
