Middle school studied the lost art of writing “Thank You” notes in February. But the assignment earned more than just a grade. It netted one scholar a fabulous surprise, when the company he wrote said “Thank You” right back.
Scholars wrote notes of gratitude to a company that produced something they like. Letters went out to Starbucks, McDonald’s, and other favorites. They mailed their missives and that was it. Or was it? Imagine 6th grader Christopher Lindsey’s surprise when his teacher called him over to open a package addressed to him. Lego had sent more building blocks for his imagination. He loves his Legos so much, he carries them around in a lunch bag. Saying “Thank You” really works both ways.
