Books About Queen Elizabeth, and Scholastic Digi-Flyers for September

It was so nice to see so many families at the Back to School Night!  I hope you all had a great time.  Don’t forget this Wednesday is Culture and Curriculum Night. I will be in the library so you can stop by to talk to me.  I’ll have a handout to give everyone as well.  See you soon!

I run a Scholastic program where parents can purchase books for their children and then we receive free books for our school library as a reward.  For those who have children in classes where the homeroom teachers are not already running a classroom account, you are welcome to use this whole-school one.

Your order will ship to your home and you can order online whenever you’d like!  When you enter the ‘class code’, your order earns 20% back for new books for our school library.  Orders over $40 are free shipping.

Use this for the Class code – RC391237
