Reminders – 

*Scholastic book flyers were be given out  to grades 6&7 on October 1 st so please review them with your child and send in any orders by October 18th the latest so I can put the order in by the end of the month. 

-My class code was given to all my classes and I posted the code and link above.  If you would like to order any books you can order online using my code and using a credit card.  Your order will  be delivered to the school with any other orders.  If you would like to order through me…send in the order form (last page) and CASH ONLY because I have to send the checks to Scholastic by mail and then it delays the delivery of our books.
