We Impact Educators

“They all came away more empowered and dedicated to doing their respective parts in ensuring every student experienced a measure of educational success.
 

I have successfully implemented ETA videos, books, posters, and Grind Gear at three Title 1 Elementary schools in Texas over the past six years. All three schools have each seen a tremendous upward shift in their student's performance. The use of motivational tools provided by Eric Thomas in my estimation has been a major factor in that positive upward trend.”

—Jonathan Kegler, Principal

We Impact Families

“While quarantined and concerned for our health and even being separated from our children because of COVID-19, God sent your generosity our way during this time and so quickly and we’re so grateful for you. Our hearts are so full because of how much you blessed and loved on our J axon & Ava for this Christmas!

 

We cannot thank you and the School Days Foundation enough for adding JOY to our home this Christmas! Especially for our children Jaxon & Ava!”
