Hoping you and your students are off to a strong start. Bear Essential News just printed and distributed its free September Editions for Phoenix and Tucson.

Through the non-profit, Bear Essential Educational Services, editors are able to visit your school or organization to conduct free presentations on writing and/or reporting!
The SeptemBear Edition encourages young people to be well-informed and to join Bear’s literacy award-winning Young Reporters Program. As Young Reporters, they develop their writing and communication skills, and the program can help students to be a little more outgoing. The program is for those in grades 3 thru 8.
Please encourage your students to be part of this amazing writing program. Kids can connect with other reporters during our monthly Zoom meetings and they get to ask questions of our special guest speakers. Young Reporters receive an official YR Kit to help get them started, and we are looking for a volunteer Adviser at every school with reporters.
This issue also features Bear’s 2022 Field Trips & Family Outings guide. To request newspapers for your school or to adjust the amount of newspapers your school receives, please call toll free: 1-866-NEWS KID (639-7543).
Phoenix-area third-graders can enter Valley Metro’s Cool Transit STUFF 3rd Grade Art Contest Deadline for entries is Friday, Oct. 7.
These worksheets are brought to you by the 501(c)(3) non-profit Bear Essential Educational Services.
Thank you for all you do for your students,
Stephen B Gin, editor
