Back to School
August of 2018 is upon us and it’s time to share our monthly mini-marketing campaign. Let’s get to it.
Additionally, every August brings recurrent meteor showers, including the Perseids and Kappa Cygnids, which appear on different dates every year.
This month we’re focused on the end-of-summer ritual that is “Back to School.” Students are returning to class this month, and to help kids in your community get back in the swing of things, we’re spotlighting the informative GoWYLD.net database resource, Britannica School. Students of all ages can explore articles about famous people & places, get homework help in various subjects, discover maps, photos, & illustrations for school assignments, and complete research projects by accessing multiple resources in a single place.
Visit Britannica School to help students prepare for a successful school year.
