Dear Teacher Yun,
How have you been recently? It’s been a long time since we met last time. I guess you must be busy because I haven’t seen you visiting our school. Please take care of yourself so that you will be full of energy when you work.
During the month, we had a general exam and physical examinations continuously for 3 days. They gave me headaches. To my surprise, I was able to run 800 meters in the 1,000 meter race. My legs were weak although there were still 200 meters to complete. Luckily, they asked 2 medical staff to help me take medicine in time and there was nothing wrong with me. After the exam, our school held a parents’ meeting. Anyway, a lot of things happened this month. I have not recklessly spent the money you gave me, but rather, I have followed your instructions to spend accordingly in my study expenses and life necessities. Thank you for your caring for me. I will study hard to realize my dream and live up to your expectation. Please remember that you have promised me to take me to hot springs in Wushan before leaving. You’re not allowed to lie to me! Anyways, I will talk to you more next time we meet!
Goodbye Aunt Yun and all the Aunts and Uncles from LRS!
Your saved child,
