Great things are happening in Kelly Welch’s third grade class at Tryon Elementary.
Students are participating in a pen pal letter correspondence with some area businesses, part of a class unit on entrepreneurship and the local community.
To begin the unit, students took a tour through Tryon, visiting some of the local government buildings and merchants. Following the tour, class members began corresponding with some of the people they met on the tour.
Students are working on their second letter after they researched what their pen pal’s role is in their local community.
