The United States Postal Service and WeAreTeachers have joined forces to present The USPS Pen Pal Project, a free program for third-, fourth- and fifth-grade students to improve their writing, communication and collaboration skills.

As described by the USPS, 25,000 U.S. classes in grades 3-5 “will each be matched with a partner class across the country with the goal of building friendships and understanding diverse perspectives.”

Class matches will be shared in late December or early January, and the first pen-pal letters will be mailed in January.

Teachers who wish to receive a USPS Pen Pal Project kit for their class can sign up here.
