If you could go back in time, what would you say to your adolescent self? 

Now you’ve got that chance! Not to time travel, but to impart words of wisdom and encouragement to a 6th grader on his or her first day of middle school.  

In 45 seconds, you can customize a simple message to a student in the Bronx. Data shows that students who receive encouragement show significant improvements both in their beliefs about their ability to be successful, as well as their actual academic performance. 

Just click here to fill in the blanks of a pre-written letter sharing personal tidbits such as your favorite subject, what you wanted to be when you grew up and the best advice you ever received. 

Sixth grade students in ExpandED Schools will receive these customized notes and a pencil on their first day of school, and teachers will have lesson plans with ways to engage students in discussions about geography, history and careers.  

So brighten a tween’s first day of school and, in doing so, make an impact on their future.
