Some local businesses are getting early feedback this year from their future paying customers.
Fifth-grade Crissman Elementary students recently worked with media center teacher Courtney Conley to put their thoughts on paper about their favorite businesses and send them to the companies.
Students had to develop a clear and brief letter that outlined two compliments and one area of concern.
Students used "Kidpiration" software to map out their thoughts for the letter. The students then used Microsoft Word to create and edit the letters into a final format.
Students are already receiving replies from their local businesses and have received such things as latest Lego mini-figures from Lego and a $10 Gift Card to Red Robin.
