Attention All Family and Friends of our DHS Class of 2019

Senior Letters Information:

**Letter DEADLINE April 12th**

What is a Senior Letter?
Senior Letters are positive letters written to your senior. They will be delivered to them at Senior Breakfast on April 18th.

What kinds of things can I write about in a senior letter?
There are many acceptable topics for senior letters. These include
• Congratulating the senior on graduating
• Wishing the senior well in his/her next phase of life (college, military, career)
• Reminiscing on fond memories (childhood, school, social gatherings, etc.)

How do I write a senior letter and get it to a student?
Senior letters can be written on notebook paper, colored paper, stationary, cards, etc. Please place senior letters in envelopes. In the bottom left hand corner, please write the full name of the student to whom the letter is addressed. It is often easier for a parent to collect the letters and put them in one envelope for the senior. (Please do not use nicknames.)

Parents may drop off letters to the drop box in the main lobby. Students may drop off letters in the main lobby front desk/front office, 439 (Mrs. Funderburk), T8 (Mrs. A. Smith), or 106 (Counseling Office).

What if somebody outside of school (parents, grandparents, family friends, etc.) wants to send a letter?
• People who live locally can mail their letters or choose to bring their letters to the school and drop them off at the drop box in the main lobby.
• People who live farther away can mail their letters, or, if saving postage is a real concern, they can e-mail the letters to the senior’s parents who can then print them off and drive them up to the school. (Please do not expect the school to print the letters from emails. This would be impossible for the number of graduating seniors we have each year.)
• You may mail letters directly to the school. The student’s name should be on the envelope of the actual letter to avoid having to open up each letter.
The address to use is:
Discovery High School
Senior Letters
1335 Old Norcross Road
Lawrenceville, GA 30046
• Envelopes should contain the address in the regular location and the student’s full name, including middle name, in the bottom left hand corner.
• Please do not use nicknames. (See example.)

Who reads the senior letters?
Senior letters are delivered to students unopened. The only time we open a letter is when the information on the outside does NOT allow us to determine who should receive the letter. In that case we open the letter to try to determine to whom to deliver it.

Can people send items other than letters?
NO!! If people want to send money, please have them send it directly to your house. We make EVERY effort to deliver the right letters to the right people, and we are very successful at this, but we wouldn’t want something to accidentally happen to your money. If people want to send you gifts, photo albums, etc., please have them deliver those to your home.

When can I begin turning in senior letters?
We will receive letters from March 11th through April 12th. After that, we will NOT accept any letters. Unfortunately, we will not receive any letters after the deadline.
