It all started with a Christmas present... "Oregon Trail II"... and a new keypal, Christine, in Oregon. Now look who we've found at the end of this Trail!

Mr. Miles and Room 205!

Hi. My name is Candice. How are you doing? I'm doing fine. Where do you live? What do you do to have fun? I live in Portland, Oregon. What I do to have fun is go to the mall, shop, and go rollerblading. If you want to be my key pal, please write back.


To Whom It May Concern:
Candice is a very smart girl with a great sense of humor. She likes music and reading. She is very friendly, and she is a good writer. She would be an excellent key pal.

Mr. Miles (Candice's teacher)

Dear Christa,

I'm Emily Kunen. I'm 9 years old, and yes, I'm in the fourth grade. My friend is Christine Soma. She is key pals with Ashley. Do you celebrate Christmas? What kind of house do you live in? Do you have a farm? I have a very small yard.

Do you have any after-school activities? I have six. On Monday, Wednesday and Friday I have Taekwondo (that's a martial art like Karate). On Tuesdays and Thursdays I have gymnastics. On Tuesday I have piano lessons. On Mondays and Fridays I have Spanish Club. On Thursdays I have jump rope and basketball. That's all I have to say for now.

Your new key pal,
Emily Kunen

Meet classmates, Miki, Adrian and Alex. Amy Miles joins us too!
