Letters for Las Manitas

Director - Jeff Gipson

Director - Joshua Tate

Director - Yuta Yamaguchi

The students in Mrs. Leftwich's fourth grade class are learning much more than fractions and geology this year; they're learning how to make a difference in their community. The issue: a classmate's family's restaurant rests on the block of Congress Avenue that may soon hold the foundation for a brand-new Marriott hotel. The students' resounding commitment: to write letters to their council members and support the local business that has so often supported them.
