National School Choice Week provides an exciting opportunity, every year, for teachers and administrators to celebrate what makes their schools great!
Schools can sign up to receive a free box of NSCW supplies, including NSCW’s signature yellow fleece scarves. Use these materials at any event, meeting, or activity of your choice during NSCW. Whether you plan a school assembly, a parent information night, a pizza party, a service project, or anything else – we encourage you to have fun and we’ll work closely with you to help get positive attention for your participation.
