A Letter For Avery

Mondale Preparatory Academy For Girls
c/o Avery-Marie V. Voisin: Dorm 12A
4597 Holland Lane
Yorkshire, MI 49123

Miss Voisin,
Officials in attendance at Mondale's annual eighth grade science fair were highly impressed by your experiment and research on the Leidenfrost Effect and your award of first place. Upon further investigation, we spoke to your counselor, Miss Jennifer Neil, who, legally, gave us a bit of information on you. We also were in contact with a few of your teachers, who spoke very highly of you, Avery.

With your outstanding academic performance and grade point average, not to mention your activity in the school band program, student council, soccer team, and Nation Junior Honor Society, we would like to cordially invite you to attend Rosenbrock Academy for your ninth grade year.

Rosenbrock is also a boarding school only about twenty miles from Mondale. It is an advanced academy for the academically gifted. We would be honored to have you attend on a full ride scholarship. Rosenbrock can challenge your mind, extend your learning, and help you to be the best that you can be.

Rosenbrock has an excellent mathematics and science department headed by Dr. Terry M. Gold, a graduate of the University of Michigan. There is also an English and Literature program, headed by Miss Nancy J. Simonds, of the University of Phoenix, and a History department lead by the Mr. Jason L. Douglas. Our music program has been recognized nationally for our streak of Division One's at competitions, and the conductor, Mr. Dylan W. Lolan, of Western University, has been in the field for over twenty-five years. There are many successful sport organizations, art and foreign language classes, clubs, and other student activities.

We have much to offer here, and would love for you to consider our offer. Please be in contact, and we can sort this out with yourself and family members.

Avery here, and I know not what to say. This letter arrived this morning. Could I be leaving Mondale...for good?
