Scholastic Reading Club

Good news! This month’s Scholastic Reading Club flyers are ready for you to explore with your child. Children read more when they choose their own books, so I encourage you to look at the flyers together. Each flyer is filled with grade-specific, and affordable titles.

Place your order online at or return the order form and payment to me. Ordering online is the easiest way to ensure I get your order on time. Also, there are more books to choose from as well as teacher recommendations.

Remember, for every book you order, our class earns FREE Books and supplies…and we have our eye on some new additions.

Thank you for your support!

PS: Books make wonderful gifts! Please let me know if your order includes a gift, and I will contact you when it arrives.

Ordering online is fast and easy:

  •  VISIT
  •  ENTER the one-time Class Activation Code GMQ6R
  •  SHOP from a carefully curated selection of the best books, value packs, and Storia eBooks
  •  SUBMIT your order and earn FREE Books for our classroom
  •  All book orders will be shipped to our classroom so we can celebrate the joy of reading together!



The yearbook flyers will be going home today.  The flyers are advertising an “Early Bird Special” on the yearbooks for $17 until December 16.  After that date, the price goes up to $20.
