Knowing what you know now, if you could write a letter to yourself that would travel back in time so that you would receive it at the start of the school year, what advice would you give your younger self?

Dear Ella,

These are some things you need to know in first grade. First of all, always put your name on your paper. Second of all, always push in your chair. Third of all, always try your best. And be safe, caring and respectful. If you do these, you will do awesome at first grade!
