Howe Montessori and Center Based Education

Attention 3rd and 4th Grade Howe Parents!

Today your child will bring home a packet of information from the University of Michigan regarding a landmark effort called the Adolescent Brain and Cognitive Development (ABCD) study. Over 10,000 nine- and ten-year-old children across the country will join this study, supported by the American School Health Association and National Institutes of Health.

Participation in this project is voluntary.

I encourage you to read the information. Participants will be paid for their time. If you are interested, use the postage paid envelope in the packet or go to Howe ABCD to submit a response card.

For additional information, visit the study website at www.abcdstudy.org, email abcdmichigan@umich.edu, call toll-free 844-864-ABCD, or go to Howe ABCD.
