Ordering books from Scholastic Book Clubs is a great way to build your home library. If you order on line by going to www.scholastic.com/bookclubs and use our class activation code: GW9PT, your order will be sent directly to our classroom for distribution to your child. An added benefit to online ordering is that our classroom earns coupons for free books! You also may continue to send in cash or checks made payable to Scholastic with the paper order form with your child. 

Thank you for any orders and continued support!

What are we working on now, and what is coming up soon!

In an effort to help keep our students safe on the internet, I've included links below to a few "kid friendly' search engines as well as some other helpful sites.

Great search engine for kids!

Ivy's Search Engines for Kids

There are multiple links on this page to search engines for children.

This site has a video for children to help them understand what digital citizenship is and how they can be good digital citizens and safe on-line. It also has resources for parents and teachers.

Bibliography - Citation Machine

This site will help you cite references for a bibliography to give credit to the author of the words and ideas you've used.
