New York student Lucas Ayala, who goes to Out World Neighbourhood School in Queens, was so sick of a ban on playing with Pokémon cards during breaks that he wrote the school a letter, asking them to reconsider.

Somehow, that actually worked.

The school's assistant principal, moved by Ayala's politely-worded letter, not only replied, he replied awesomely, saying the ban was lifted and that the school's math teachers would even consider using it in class.


The AP, Richard Welles, finishes the letter by saying the card game is also back because it's fun.

What a great school.
