San Cayetano Elementary

Rio Rico, AZ

Share this Letter

Hi my name is Sophia. I am writing this essay to Lowe’s. My school needs the $25,000 because we need a shade structure for our playground. The reason we need a shade structure so badly is because the temperatures here in my town of Rio Rico, Arizona can reach between 90 to 100+ degrees from May to October.

For that reason we are more likely to get skin cancer. Arizona is one of the top places in the country for cases of skin cancer. Most of our playground equipment is made with metal that can become really hot and cause injuries like blisters on our hands, scrapping of our knees, elbows and other body parts. Plus we get really hot and have to drink water all the time.

San Cayetano Elementary is in a rural area and our budget is very small. We cannot afford the shade structure. Our parents have tried to raise the money, but we still don’t have enough. These are just some of the reasons why we need the money for the shade structure. I hope you can help us.

Thank you.
