I try to do book orders about once a month. I love Scholastic for its convenience and reasonable prices. Please never feel obligated to purchase anything! However, I do feel that it is important for your child to have always have something that he/she enjoys reading. Taking the catalogues is optional for the kids (although you should see how excited they all get over them.)
There are two ways of ordering-sending in the slip and a check (please send a check and not cash because then I have to write a check to Scholastic) or ordering online. Anytime a parent orders online we get a $3 coupon to order a book for the classroom which is pretty exciting:) Here is how you do it:
■ SIGN UP at www.Scholastic.com/bookclubs On the parent page, click the "Don't have a User Name and Password?" link, then register for your own username and password. When prompted, enter the one-time Class Activation Code: GYH94 Anytime after that you can simply use your sign-in information
■ SELECT the books you'd like to order from over 500 titles available online...and take advantage of online-only specials and discounts. You can also order by credit card. The books are sent to the classroom as usual.
