Oaklane Colony Elementary School: Hearts Around the United States

Hanson County teacher collecting Valentine’s Day cards for students

A class at Oaklane Colony Elementary School in Alexandria, South Dakota, is participating in “Hearts Around the United States.”

Tracy Henglefelt teaches for a Hutterite colony in the Hanson School District, and she is asking for Valentine’s Day cards or postcards from all 50 states and 10 provinces in Canada.

The class will be collecting cards throughout February.

To help the class with their project, please send cards to the following address:

Oaklane Colony Elementary School
Mrs. Henglefelt’s Class
26730 423rd Ave.
Alexandria, SD 57311
United States of America

I thought some of you would want to mail this classroom a postcard.
