Scholastic Book Orders

Dear 5th Grade Parents,

I have started scholastic book orders for this school year. I love giving students and parents another way to get books. Almost all books are cheaper from scholastic than if bought in stores or online. I love finding ways to save money and this is a great one for books. Another big reason why I love scholastic is that for every order our class earns points that I use to purchase books for my classroom library. Last year I was able to get over 200 books from scholastic for my classroom library.

My class library is available for all 5th grade students. They are allowed check out one book at a time. They are responsible for taking care of the book that they borrow. I love having another place for students to get to check out books but that requires us to all take care of those books.

At the beginning of each month I will pass out scholastic book order forms to students that would like one. All orders are due the last SCHOOL DAY of the month. If an order is turned in late it will be sent with the next months order. I submit orders after school on the last school day of the month. Orders take about a week to come in. September orders are due by the end of school on Friday, September 29th.

How to order…Students can turn in the paper order form from with cash or check. Checks should be made out to “Scholastic Book Club.” Parents can place orders online at using our class code QKCML and you can pay with a credit or debit card. Online orders will be submitted at the end of the month with all other orders. Feel free to email me at with any questions.

Thank You,

Miss Stoneman
