We enjoy +Highlights for Children and hope that this new program gets more magazines into our children's classrooms!
 
It's BACK-TO-SCHOOL time! 

And I am excited to share with you that HIGHLIGHTS (yes, the awesome kids magazine) is now offering a teacher pricing for classrooms to order the magazine for their students.  I know that I would have loved for my students to get their hands on a recent magazine each month and my families would have benefited from having grade level materials at home. +Highlights for Children 

If you are a parent or a teacher of an elementary school student, then I strongly urge you to check this out!

If you are a business owner, PTA member, or just good person, then I urge you to consider sponsoring a set of magazines for a classroom in your local area!  What a gift this would be for a teacher!
