Congratulations on doing so well. I hope the material will help you even more on your high school exams. But note that your teacher may not ask the same questions, so make sure you study what is also covered in class.
But I know you are on your way to becoming a champion.

Dear School for Champions,
You guys are really great. I am proud to say that i am learning so many things from you that weren't that important to me before. Just for the sake of your curiosity, I found out about your site when, I got my last report card for 10th grade. My grades werent bad but on a couple of the subjects, i seemed to have scored very low. I got so mad, that I went to Yahoo! Search TM, and I typed in these exact words "HOW TO GET BETTER GRADES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!". The first link that came up was your site. I decided to check it out and, vioala! It was the first few sentences that caught my attention. I started reading and i found out it made so much sense to me now. Thank you School For Champions!!!

Used material to win Future City competition
June 25, 2004
Washington DC's R.H. Terrell Junior High School won first place in the 2004 Regional Future City Competition. Team members Shawanne Bender, Zataunia Heard, and Danielle Nelson qualified for the 2004 National Finals in Washington during National Engineers Week
Assisted by SECME teacher Lucius Stephenson, engineering mentor Tolulope A. Odunlami, and teacher Virginia Kirkpatrick, the Terrell team wrote essays and designed and built a colorful three-dimensional scale model of their futuristic city. SECME is a nonprofit organization that helps minority students advance in science and engineering.
The students named their city "Plassien" (the Greek word for plastics) for its material of construction. Located off the coast of Florida and set in the year 3028, Plassien was designed to make quality of life better for a population of 166,000 senior citizens.
Stephenson saluted R.H. Terrell Principal Dr. Francis Nicol and Asst Principal Jo Anne Bonney for their support throughout the competition and leadership in implementing an enriched academic program that is benefiting all of the school's students. He also referred to the School for Champions as a resource used in their science studies.
Besides an all-expense six-day stay at the National Finals in Washington and national recognition from President Bush, the Terrell team was featured in two Washington Times articles and a Voice of America radio interview broadcast world-wide.
Science teachers and students interested in this competition can get more information at www.futurecity.org.

Writer has succeeded
May 24, 2004
I would like to send a complement to a writer/poet I found by internet search, who is apparently not published, but who I think should be. I'm writing to you because he/she sent you an inquiry, so I think you may be able to pass this on to him/her.
His/her name is Nyambura Kiari and the piece I found is titled "The Queen of Creation". I thought it a wonderful poem. This complement is all I have to give him/her, and I hope it offers encouragement.
Larry - USA (3379)
Thanks for your feedback. I am glad to hear that Nyambura has been published. I forwarded your letter, and I'm sure he/she will appreciate it. (I too don't know which to use.)
