Hi Everybody, I have never written any letter requesting anything from parents, so I am very hesitant (embarrassed/fearful) to write them one. However, my class need to raise some money to cover the bus costs for our field trip. I am thinking of of asking parents to donate aluminum cans to our class so that we can turn them into cash. How would you start such a letter of request. Please help me out. Any ideas/format you can suggest will be appreciated.
