Back-to-school season means a full inbox around here! We received many emails about useful resources — much too late to include them in the Fall issue. Take a look:
Ascension Press announces its Great Adventure Bible in a Day program. Join former EWTN host and best-selling author Jeff Cavins as he explains the “story” of the Bible in a day—at three exclusive events.

Personalized learning, when done right, can transform a school for the betterment of students. In order to do it right, principals need to find the funding and resources to support effective initiatives. To support them in this work, Education Elements is offering a grant to help principals implement lead student-centered learning initiatives with success. The Education Elements Grant for Personalized Learning Schools will provide a principal with $3,000 to use toward classroom redesign or programs that will directly benefit student learning and outcomes, 12 months of access to Education Elements’ Personalized Learning Toolkit and six hours of virtual support with an Education Elements consultant. Principals can apply through Sept. 30, 2019. For more information or to apply, visit bit.ly/PLGrant.
