Manchester Center, VT- April 1st, 2011- Digital Wish is livening up every elementary classroom in America with a shot of Espresso...Espresso Elementary, that is. For the month of April, every elementary school teacher who signs up on Digital Wish will receive a free subscription to Espresso Elementary through June 30th. Teachers who are already registered can also take advantage of this special grant opportunity.

Espresso Education has been the leading digital curriculum service in the UK for years and is now expanding its high quality educational program to America. Appropriate for the PreK-5 classroom, Espresso is a vast library of video clips integrated with interactive activities, games, quizzes, and a weekly news service, News Roundup. Its cross-curricular learning modules help elementary school teachers deliver memorable lessons, engaging students in the learning process.

Educators need to act fast to take advantage of this special grant opportunity, as it is only available to those who register with Digital Wish in the month of April, or who have already registered. After this grant period passes, teachers will still be able to purchase or have Espresso Elementary subscriptions donated to them through Digital Wish for the full cost of the subscription service, valued at $1595.00 annually.

"We are excited to introduce Espresso Education's high quality program to America's teachers," said Heather Chirtea, founder and executive director of Digital Wish, "but we are even more excited to bring this huge grant opportunity from Espresso Education to potentially every elementary teacher in the country."

Lewis Bronze, Espresso CEO commented, "We think Digital Wish is a fantastic organization and a real service to teachers who need extra support to bring technology into their classroom. We are proud to have been selected as a 'wish list' product. Espresso's mission is to inspire children of all abilities to learn and to support teachers in delivering memorable, interactive lessons. We hope that Digital Wish teachers who try Espresso will agree and we look forward to the feedback!"

After they are registered with Digital Wish, teachers will be provided with a code to start using the service, free of charge. The subscription will run until June 30th, 2011
