Anchor Point, AK, Retail Associate Melody Martin takes kids on a tour of the post office for National Card and Letter Writing Month.

Students from Chapman Elementary School in Anchor Point, AK, toured their local Post Office to learn about mailing letters and how mail moves through the facility for April’s National Card and Letter Writing Month.

Anchor Point Postmaster Rindye Phillips arranged the visitations.

“The tour began with the children purchasing stamps for letters they wrote to their friends or family,” Phillips explained. “They put their letters in the drop box and entered the office to see where the letters went. They were amazed at each stop on the tour.

“At the end of the tour, the teachers were given a bag with coloring pages and stickers for the kids,” she added. “We received ‘thank you’ posters from the children, which we put up on display in the mail room to remind our employees of the importance of teaching and how much fun a post office can be.”
