We're in the money! Grant money, that is.

Discount School Supply has recently developed and implemented a searchable education grant database! We are excited about this new, FREE, valuable service to Discount School Supply customers.

By going to My School Grantsm and searching for a grant, you can find financial support available to you and your early education program! The database even allows you to narrow your search to your specific state and your specific needs.

Discount School Supply has also partnered with School Funding Center to provide customers access to a wealth of grant writing support. Once you’ve identified a grant that fits your needs, you can send an inquiry to School Funding Center. They will evaluate your situation and if it seems like you’ve got a fair chance at winning the grant, School Funding Center can write the grant for you—on contingency! School Funding Center is the only national grant writing company that writes grants for schools on a contingency basis. This inquiry is completely free to you and requires no commitment on your part.

Need advice on finding a grant that’s right for you? School Funding Center Founder Don Peek writes about how to get a school grant on his blog, How to Get a School Grant .

Your Two Cents or more, win Gift Card from Discount School Supply

To introduce our new reviews and ratings on the Discount School Supply Web site, we asked customers to give us their "Two Cents" at NAEYC. Postcards, complete with two actual pennies, were given to teachers, administrators and early childhood professionals as a take-home reminder to tell us and share with their peers what they like and how they use our school supply products in their classroom.

Excitement was generated for the program by conducting a

"Guess How Many Pennies in the Jar?" contest.

Each day, teachers lined up to make their best guess and enter a drawing for a $100 Discount School Supply gift certificate. Guesses ranged from the low hundreds to more than 200,000, and some teachers even called a friend to help them guess just the right amount.

So, how many pennies were in the jar?
Exactly 3,153

Four winners, one for each day of NAEYC, will be notified within the next two weeks.

Save on school supply, last day at NAEYC 2008

As the week draws to a close, our personal service managers, below, are sad to go. As each Discount School Supply bag is filled with classroom essentials, each of us are reminded of the loyal and dedicated early childhood educators who continue to shop with us every year.
We are thankful for those of you who have stopped by our booth to visit, just to let us know that your school district or center is happy with the products and curriculum resources they can't live without, and we were equally delighted to talk to those of you who discovered Discount School Supply for the first time.

Many teachers were excited to learn about our Colorations® line of arts & crafts supplies, such as paint, markers, collage accessories, paper and more -- all at the lowest prices guaranteed. And we saw excitement in the smiles of teachers who took home their own creations at our Make & Take booth. With every Scratch Art® masterpiece made and every Texas Snowflake blotted with Liquid Watercolor, we tip our colorful coffee filter hats to you, teachers and educators, and we look forward to seeing familiar faces and making new friends at next year's NAEYC.
