You may respond in either Spanish or English.

If you could speak to the students who will be in your grade next year, what advice would you give them regarding the social challenges of your age group?

How did you grow socially this year? What changes did you notice in yourself? What changes did you notice in your peers?

Are you satisfied with your friendships as they are now? What, if anything, would you change about them?

What challenges did you have in your social life? What did you learn from them?
