Dear Parents,

My absolute favorite thing to do is READ!  If you love to read or want your child to have a love for reading, the best thing you can do is have plenty of books for them to choose from.  The best and easiest way to make this happen is simply purchasing books through Scholastic.  You can order online at any time and those books will ship to our school.  
The best part of ordering online through Scholastic is that the money doesn't have to be sent to the pay online.  Your child will receive his or her book along with the rest of the books that come to our classroom.  The orders you place help me to earn points. Those points are used throughout the year to order books for our classroom library!  Go here to order:
