Scholastic Book Club

Dear Parents,

We will no longer be sending home monthly flyers for the Scholastic Book orders. Here is a Scholastic Books Parent Letter from Ms. Arnold regarding some necessary changes in how we will proceed in participating with Scholastic Books online. After reading the letter, you can follow the steps provided below to get started. As a reminder, the more books you order, the more classroom points we earn. These points are used to update classroom libraries with FREE books as well as additional supplies for our classrooms. Please consider this online ordering opportunity when shopping for birthdays and Christmas.
