Greetings to Mrs. Jones' 4th graders at Gaines Academy in Fort Pierce Florida from your pen pals in Mr. Horning's multi-age class at Grand Traverse Academy in Traverse City Michigan. The students received your lovely letters from Florida and working diligently to get back to you before the holiday break. The writing keeps our fingers warm in this frosty weather up north! Please send us some warmth from the Sunshine State and perhaps we can get you some cherries to you from the cherry capital in exchange! See you at Christmas Mrs. Jones along with Mr. Jones, Love your Brother Mr. Horning.
