Out-of-state pupil needs help from TimesLedger’s readers

I am in the fifth-grade at Ripon Christian Elementary School in Ripon, Calif. I have adopted your state as a class project. I will be doing a report and making a display about New York. Toward the end of April or the beginning of May, my class will have a “state fair.” I will display and show everything that I have gotten and learned about your great state to my whole school.

It would be helpful to me if you could ask your readers to send me postcards, maps and brochures of your state and information about wildlife, industry, neat places to visit, statistics, sports teams and any other information and items your readers feel would be helpful.

I hope your readers will help me with my project. I am looking forward to hearing from them and I will do my best to send a thank you to them in May after our fair. I am excited to learn about your state!

Thank you from California.

Editor’s note: The school’s address is 217 N. Maple Ave., Ripon, CA 95366.
