Dear San Antonio Express News,

For the past 3 weeks, my 9th grade students have been reading hard copies of The Wall Street Journal. For many of my students, this was their first time reading an actual printed newspaper, and they commented on "feeling like adults" reading a printed paper as opposed to e-news. They've fallen into a pleasant routine of reading the news for 15 minutes a day (without their phones). Now, however, they've asked me to get a copy of the local newspaper to follow the Spurs and local news! Are there any deals or sponsorships going on for classroom subscriptions? I sure hope so!
PLEASE HELP US SHARE ABOUT THIS FREE "PARENTING WITH A PURPOSE" EVENT
Join us at the Scobee Education Center Oct. 6th for a morning filled with fun engaging STEAM activities.
