Celebrate Middle Level Education Month! The middle school years, ages 10 to 15, are a time of some of the most rapid changes in physical, intellectual, and moral growth for humans, second only to the growth that occurs from birth to age two. The skills, habits, and values established during this time of life will directly impact a student's chances to be a lifelong learner ready for college, career, citizenship, and a bright future. For our students to be academically and personally successful, a supportive environment both at home and at school is required. Visit www.amle.org/mlem for ideas for families, schools, and communities to celebrate.

Subject: Celebrate Middle Level Education Month
March is Middle Level Education Month! This annual recognition provides a special opportunity to focus on the middle grades, a very important time in the education of our children. Other than from birth to age three, 10- to 15-year-olds are experiencing the most rapid, significant changes of their lives—changes that are physical, social, emotional, and cognitive in nature.
During this month we ask you to consider the following:
- The importance of parents being knowledgeable about young adolescents and being actively involved in their lives;
- The understanding that healthy bodies plus healthy minds equal healthy young adolescents;
- The realization that the education young adolescents experience during this formative period of life will, in large measure, determine the future for all citizens; and
- The knowledge that every young adolescent should have the opportunity to pursue his or her dreams and aspirations, and post-secondary education should be a possibility for all.
