You can search for the two books in the search box and then add them to your cart, or you can click on "Classroom Wishlist" and chose "purchase one for your child." After you have selected your book, continue to the checkout and complete your order. Of course, you can also browse the flyers and purchase additional books!

Limeades for Learning

Starting September 28, Sonic's Limeades for Learning will begin. For three weeks, Sonic will provide a code with each purchase that can be used to cast two (2) votes for a teacher's DonorsChoose.org project. Projects with the most votes will be funded by Sonic. I am hoping that I will able to get iPads and a printer for our class through this program. You can help in two ways: 1) Use the codes to vote for my projects on Limeades for Learning or 2) send the codes to me at school to use to vote. I will send more information next week.

Congratulations, 2nd Block!

Second block came in 2nd place in the food drive contest, which means that we won a pizza party! Thank you to the parents who sent in cans to help with such a worthy cause! While we are certainly are glad that we won pizza, we are more excited to help feed those in need!
