LABOR DAY - Scholastic Unit Chair Kathy Wilmore and Eric Russ were among several New York Guild members who took part in the annual New York City Labor Day Parade on Sept. 8. Guild members joined other members of the Communications Workers of America aboard a double-decker bus that made its way up Fifth Avenue.

Constantly changing and growing with teachers' needs, Scholastic magazines now also come with robust online supplements to the print magazines, including whiteboard-ready articles, videos, skills sheets, and more.

Working under the guidance of Scholastic's team of editors, the Scholastic News Kids Press Corps®, a team of students ages 10–14, supports the magazines with reports on current events, politics, entertainment, and sports events from their hometowns across the country. Their stories and videos are available at Scholastic News Online and the Kids Press Corps site and often are published in Scholastic News® and Junior Scholastic® magazines.
