- Where can I purchase books for the WITS Programs?
Many of the books used in the WITS Programs are popular children’s books that are available in school libraries. Start shopping for WITS Books here on our website: WITS Store. You might also check your local independent bookstore. Find a list of Canadian Independent Bookstores here.
Remember: you don’t need all the books to start using the WITS Programs. The programs work best if teachers use at least one WITS-pick book a month with their students. That means you can get WITS up and running with just 10 WITS books and then build your collection as time goes on.
- Where can I purchase additional WITS materials such as the reminder gifts?
Reminder gifts, a variety of which are pictured at left, are distributed to students during classroom visits by community leaders.
Provided by the WITS Programs Foundation, these gifts reinforce the WITS message by providing a tangible reminder to students to use their WITS on a daily basis. When students bring the gifts home, they also act as a conversation-starter with parents to get them talking with their kids about WITS.
The WITS Programs Foundation orders reminder gifts in bulk and can therefore offer them to schools at a reduced cost. Visit the shop for more information.
Some schools have also worked with us to create their own unique reminder gifts. Please submit any ideas to email@example.com for support and approval.
- Where can I find funds to purchase WITS resources?
If your school requires financial assistance to cover the cost of the WITS program, contact your PArents Advisory Committee, local service clubs, RCMP detachments, or businesses for support.
The WITS Programs Foundation has also been successful in assisting schools with fundraising efforts. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about fundraising initiatives, grants, and sources of potential funding in your community.
