August is always a little bittersweet as it rings in the end of summer and brings the first glimpse of fall (and pumpkin spice everything!). I personally love fall but if you are feeling a little down, these Resource Center updates will hopefully lift your spirits!

Our Spanish, French and Chinese marketing materials have been refreshed this year with new designs and are live now in our LOTE Marketing kit. We are also excited to share brand new Japanese materials to assist in promoting our great Japanese content. All available now in Marketing & Outreach > Print-Ready Materials> Additional options.
