Elementary school students run mock post office

The Daily Telegram in Adrian, MI reports that youngsters at a local elementary school participated in a "Wee Mail" program recently.
The service, now in its second year, allows students to find out what the working world is all about. Twenty students applied for the eight positions in the junior post office.
The students filled out a job application and interviewed for the jobs. Others addressed envelopes and practiced letter writing. The program gives students, parents and staff the opportunity to send letters between two school buildings.
The students also took a field trip to local Post Office and observed how the mail system works.
While the students said they enjoyed the trip and like their jobs, it isn’t something any want to do for a living.
