With this school year coming to an end, we want to help Eastern Iowa's kids and parents thank their teachers and administrators for everything they've done during the pandemic: We are going to publish your thank you notes in the newspaper!

Submit your notes to by May 22, and we'll publish them in an upcoming edition. 

When you're done, check out more from Kids Gazette, like:

 Draw your own comic strip

 Get to know the birds of Iowa

 Try this craft: Make birds out of toilet paper tubes

 More online games and activities

And check out the Kids Gazette page in the newspaper every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
