Trick or Treat for UNICEF

5th grade is having a contest to see which homeroom can raise the most money for UNICEF. This is through Miss Stoneman’s ELA class.

Scholastic has partnered with UNICEF to do Trick or Treating for UNICEF. The money raised will help children that are in need of clean water, mosquito nets to protect against Malaria, school supplies for refugee kids, food for malnourished children, and many other things. I sent home small orange boxes that show how much some of those things cost. Students do not have to participate if they do not want to but the class that raises the most money will get an extra recess. Also, the student who raises the most for each class will win a prize.

Students can take their box when they go trick or treating and ask for donations, they can ask family or family friends, or they can put their own money in. I have also told them that they may ask neighbors but ONLY IF YOU SAY THAT IT IS OKAY! I also told them to let their parents know if they are planning to ask while they go trick or treating.

Students can turn in change, dollar bills, or checks. Checks should be make out to UNICEF USA

Please email me with any question that you have at

Dear Students and Parents,

We are in need of some shoe boxes, regular sized popsicle sticks, paper plates, paper/styrofoam cups, pipe cleaners, paper lunch sacks. As supplies is dropped off I will post on the 5th grade blog and the 5th grade channel on schoolway to let you know what we are still in need of. Thank you for your help in making this fun project possible. Students may drop off any supplies in Miss Stoneman’s room before school or when they come to class. Thank you for your help.

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
