Assignment Gets Free Popcorn For Binks Student

Binks Forest Elementary School fifth-grade student Michael Barashick received an astonishing response from a business letter he wrote as a class assignment. The fifth-graders in Susie Barnes’ class wrote and mailed business letters to companies that make their favorite food products. About a week after doing the assignment, Barashick was pleasantly surprised when a case of Pirate’s Booty popcorn was shipped to his classroom in reply to his business letter. Shown above is Barashick with his “booty.”
