  • Each registered student gets paired up with another Enlightium student of the same gender and grade level. 
  • Students will write letters, learn about each other's culture, and make a new friend that will last a lifetime! Letters can be hand-written  (highly recommended) or sent via email (if hand-written is not an option).
  • Students who meet attendance and participation requirements are entered into a drawing for a $50 gift card at the end of the year.
  • Students are required to write and send at least five letters to their Pen Pal. After sending each letter, they should submit an attendance form.
  • Enlightium will post a reminder on the Enlightium Parents App monthly for students to correspond with their pen pal.
  • Participation in Pen Pal Program counts as fulfilling the Student Social Opportunity.
