Daylight Students love getting mail from their classroom sponsors! They are so excited to read the letters from their friends in America. It is empowering to know that people care about them enough to share their lives in a letter. Our students like to learn about American culture, families, schools, and weather (especially snow!).
This is why we are so grateful for the Daylight classroom sponsors who take time to write our students. These letters are read to the entire class and then passed around for each student to read. They love looking at the pictures and holding a letter from across the world!
If you are interested in becoming a classroom sponsor you can give $30 monthly, you’ll be partnered with a specific class of your choice (grade 4, 5, 6, or 7). These monthly funds will go to purchasing food, school supplies, and daily needs of the students. You are invited to write letters to the class. In return, you’ll receive updates and letters from students three times a year.
Letter-Writing Prompts to Your Sponsored Class:
Your letters will be read to the entire class so please address it to the class as a whole. In your letters we encourage you to connect over interests and activities. Please avoid talking about things you own. If you send a picture of your family please do not include pictures of your home or things you own.
