Dear Mr. President

Richard Jones holds up copy of letter he wrote independently and sent to President Barack Obama. Principal Dr. Terri Cooper is present in the background.

Dear President Barack Obama,

My name is Richard Jones, and I am a third grader at Sun Valley Elementary School in Indian Trail, NC which is 15 minutes away from Charlotte, NC. My favorite subject is Reading. My teacher's name is Ms. Downs.

My School is the best in NC. One thing that made my school special is the togetherness of my teachers. On Friday, January 25th, we had a special day at our school. We had a breakfast with our grandparents. Many loved ones attended. I wanted to tell you this because I know how you feel about family. I am only 8 years old, and I am still concerned as a child. It would please me if you could give all my teachers an award.

P.S. If you or Ms. Michelle can visit that would be great.

Richard Jones
