Student Treasures Book Order Forms

Each student took home a Student Treasures order form on Friday. This is for a book that we are making as a class. On Friday we brainstormed several of the fun things we have been able to do this year. The book will be typed and will include pictures I have taken throughout the year. No purchase is necessary, but we must have all slips returned to receive a free book for our classroom library. Thank you for your help!

**To avoid any confusing the Student Treasures book IS NOT the end of year memory books we are working on in class, those are free, and each student is creating their own book!

100+ Book Club

Our due date for turning in 100+ book club forms is fast approaching. The last day to have the 100+ book club form completed will be Monday, May 2nd. I will not be able to take any forms after the due date since we need official numbers to order the pizza for our celebration. If your child is reading books as part of Reading Improvement groups, have them log those books down on their book log!
