Yes, that is right. I have been called a Scholastic-aholic several times throughout my life. In grade school, the highlight of my month was bringing home the Reading Club Flier and seeing what new books were now available. As a teacher, Scholastic provided me with a means to build my classroom library and offer additional resources to my students. Then, working with community agencies, Scholastic provided a ways to help other nonprofits and afterschool programs.
I am a huge supported and want to highlight three ways parents can support their child and their child’s school through Scholastic.
Support the Classroom through Scholastic Book Clubs
The Scholastic Book Club flier comes once a month and lets parents and children order new books and activity sets. This is a great program for the classroom because teachers can get bonus points from each order that the class places. The bonus points can be used to buy books for the classroom or to purchase supplies from the Bonus Catalog. When I taught, the bonus points allowed me to purchase book sets so I had multiple copies of several books for reading groups. There is an extra incentive for parents to place their order online and through Storia eBooks parents can create a digital library for their child to read books using the latest technology.
Support the School through the Scholastic Book Fair
Schools usually have a Scholastic Book Fair once a year. How each school promotes their fair is different but its purpose is to allow students and families to purchase age appropriate books at their school. By purchasing items from the Book Fair the school is able to get Scholastic Dollars that can be used to help their school purchase books for the classroom or assist in getting more technology. My daughter’s preschool was able to buy a listening center with their Scholastic Dollars and audio books for the PreK classes.

Support your Child with the Scholastic Website
The Scholastic Website is a great educational resource. The Parent section of the website allows you to select the age range of your child and provides tips and activities that are helpful for their grade level. The site also provides a Home Library Builder where you answer a couple of questions about the books you have at home for your child. Using your answers it provides suggestions that fit your child’s developmental stage.
For the kids there is the Family Playground site. This provides games, stories, printables and videos that children can explore.
Scholastic is one of my favorite go-to places when looking for books and resources for Stella. I am a huge supporter of how they support education and provide a means for me to support my educators. Being a Scholastic-aholic is not so bad…

You Want: Clarity, Support, and a Step-by-Step Action Plan
If you know you could benefit from the daily support from other student leaders just like you, specific how-to strategies, as well as the what to do direction from someone who’s been there before you…and who can save you a lot of time and effort so you reach your dreams 10 times faster.
Then YES this is the course is for you!
Like attracts like – when you surround yourself with big dreamers, it totally rubs off on you. That energy and focus can be unreal!!
Support is everything.
Being an “Agent of Change” can be lonely. You had a passion and will do anything to make it happen but you risk putting academics and a social life to the side. Your friends don’t seem to understand that language you are speaking.
This program includes a community of other students so you get that support and build relationships!
You also have easy to implement action steps so you can set aside time to still have a social life and study for your classes.
Imagine that you get to learn from the leader who has done it before and received recognition from the President of the United States AND served with the Corporation for National and Community Service. You get all of their secrets that to create a service program that changes lives. You also get to learn from all of the other members of the group. Best resources to develop community partners? How to recruit volunteers? Strategies to raise money and get sponsors for a successful project?
Someone in the group has probably done it and you can work together to help each other out.
Sick of trying to do this whole thing all by yourself?
You need this program.
