Pen Pal Connections

Connect with students from Mexico, the United Kingdom or Sweden! 

Pen Pal Connections is a unique opportunity to foster ongoing dialogue and understanding among youth around the globe. During a 12-week period, MPS students will have the opportunity to correspond with youth nationally or internationally through letter writing, video or audio recording. Through this series of connections, students learn about different lifestyles, cultures and perspectives, as they reflect upon their own!
