Help Support Downers Grove North Parents' Club by Shopping with Amazon Smile
One easy way that parents can help us support the scholarship program is by shopping through Amazon Smile. Just go to smile.amazon.com, select Downers Grove North Parents' Club as your designated charity, and start shopping! You will receive all of the same prices, deals, shipping discounts, etc. as you receive whenever you shop on Amazon...the only difference is that DGN Parents' Club will benefit each time you shop, which means your DGN student will benefit!
What are we reading? Resource book recommendations from the Board:
The Available Parent, by Dr. John Duffy
How to Raise an Adult: Break Free of the Overparenting Trap and Prepare Your Kid for Success, by Julie Lythcott-Haims
