Want in a little secret? For 2023, we are developing a second version for each stage. This means, a child will never have the same Friendship Journal twice!! How cool is that!?!

Is your school on a tight budget? You’re not alone! We have had some schools get super creative by splitting the cost between the school and parents.

Yes, yes, and yes. We’ve had schools do this and it works really well. It allows your school to maintain their tradition, while bringing our exciting and fun content to your students. This is a win-win for everyone!!
