Three ways to support your child and your child’s school through Scholastic

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.
