A Note to Students in the Active Engagement Movement

Sometimes it's hard to be a student! You're the one who has to get up early in the morning to catch the bus. You have to behave in class. You have to eat lunch in the school cafeteria every day. You're the one who has to drag a heavy bookbag home every afternoon, and do homework every night. Tomorrow, it's the same thing all over again. Just making it through might seem like a real challenge.

We know it's tough. We're sorry we can't help too much with the school bus, or with the school cafeteria, and we can't make your bookbag any lighter. But, we can tell you there are people close to you who are doing everything they can to help you reach your full potential while you're a student. Some of them are at school, others are at home.

In fact, there are people out there who you don't even know, and will never have a chance to meet, who are thinking about you all the time. They are the actively engaged leaders who are doing their part to create an environment where you and other students can learn, and reach your full potential.

If you had to tackle school all by yourself, it would be tough. But, you need to know there's a whole movement underway that has one goal in mind--to help you make it through, and do your best.

It's called The Active Engagement Movement. It's made up of leaders from all around you. Sometimes it's hard to be a leader too! You have to think and act differently than you ever did before. And, you have to keep a sharp focus on your goals.

Going it alone is hard. But working together, we can do great things.
