Please place your order by Friday, Oct. 7th.

I will finalize our classroom orders on the evening of the 7th and the books will arrive

You CAN order at anytime and the books will come to our classroom, but I try to put in a

When you place an order we receive classroom points. The more points, the more books I can order for the classroom library. I SO appreciate parents helping in this way! Thank you!!
