Last Book Order

I'm going to be sending our last book order of the school year home in Monday Folders this week. If you'd like to place an order, you can go online and select from any of the magazines or send a check (to Scholastic Book Club) to school by Friday morning. Stock up on some good books for summer!

To place an online order, go to and enter our class code: H4YVP
