Dear Parents and Guardians,

Each student in our class will be creating a multimedia scrapbook of his or her father’s life. This project will explore the many different uses of the computer, review parts of speech, and will provide students with an opportunity to learn more about their family heritage. In order for the project to be successful, your help is needed. Please review the list of photographs to be sent to school in an envelope or uploaded to Arrivals folder(if you have difficulty with this, you may put them on a flash drive or send them to jbutler@ltusd.org). We will take very good care of the photos and return them as soon as we have completed the project.

The photos should include a baby picture of the student, a photo of mom when she is pregnant, and any six photos of dad’s life from the time he was born until your child was born. I realize that all families are different and some photos may be difficult to find. That is okay. Students can draw missing photos (usually their artwork is better than the photos anyway).

Thank you,
Julie Butler
