Dear Third Grade Students,
I have a big problem! The PTA at Field Elementary has bought all the
students all this cool playground equipment. It cost a lot of money to buy
all the toys students wanted on the playground. The PTA really cares
about Field students!
The PTA has noticed some problems. Students have been leaving the
playground equipment outside without taking it in. Some members of the
PTA have picked up the balls, jump ropes and chalk, but they cannot do it
every day!
The PTA needs your help. They want the students of Field to enjoy the
playground equipment. They need your help immediately!


Sincerely,
The Field PTA
