Dear parents/guardians,
         We are now beginning to work on a research paper in my class. This paper is a step-by-step
process through which I will carefully guide your child. Your child will need to visit the public library to
do research. We will be spending time each week in the school library and the computer lab. Please
review the schedule of due dates with your son/daughter. The items are due at the beginning of class
on the due date. Thank you for your time and support in this project.
