Head Lice: An itchy Problem - 50 % off sale

Head lice has become an itchier problem!! According to researchers from the American Chemical Society there is a new strain of mutant head lice that is resistant to over-the counter- treatments, and they're found it at least 25 U.S. states!!

Teach Safe Relationships Act of 2015

On Tuesday, 02/03/2015 Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) and Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA) introduced the Teach Safe Relationships Act of 2015. The bill would require that health education in public secondary schools include learning on "safe relationship behavior" aimed at preventing sexual assault, domestic violence and dating violence.

One Billion Dollars For Early Childhood Education

Today, President Obama announced an initiative to "expand early education opportunities for tens of thousands of children by announcing a $1billion public-private investment in programs for the nation's youngest learners."  MarshMedia believes that high quality early childhood education represents one of the best investments our country can make. Numerous studies have demonstrated that people who enrolled in quality preschool programs are more likely to graduate from high school, own a home, less likely to get into trouble with the law, and ultimately, earn more income.

Teach Your Students To Use Their Imagination With "Dream Catchers"

The age-old symbol of the dream catcher provides an emblem for this story of two twenty-first-century heroes - Carolyn and Zachary - whose adventures show them the power of art to capture the dreams of the imagination. With Grandfather's help they set off on an incredible journey that takes them to the land of the dinosaurs, the caves of Stone Age storytellers, and then smack into a herd of stampeding buffalo on the North American plains. This inspiring story is illustrated by Louis Glanzman whose art has graced our coffee tables and bookshelves for more than fifty years. His work has captured the events of our history for the covers of the Saturday Evening Post, National Geographic, and Time magazine, and...
