Great Canadian Mail Race?

Has anyone here ever participated in something called the Great Canadian Mail Race? My class received a letter as part of it today. Apparently one of my students is supposed to respond to the letter, and the rest select a school somewhere in Canada and write to their grade five class. It sounds like fun and I think we're going to do it, just wondering if any PTers have participated! Our letter came from Elmira, ON.

I have never heard of The Great Canadian Mail Race but I have certainly visited Elmira, Ontario.

Sounds like fun.

asking students to participate almost every year. The requests always come at the worst time when we are doing provincial testing. Our letter return rate has been poor, sadly.
Share with your Principal and get permission before participating. Make sure the letter request is legitimate and your students are kept safe with no identifying information.
