Scholastic Book Club
Every term Mrs Kociak runs the Scholastic Book Club. School receives catalogues in the post every term that get sent home for you to choose books from. All the titles are hugely discounted so every choice is a bargain! On the back of the catalogue is an order form to fill in. Every book has a product code, title and price. You will need to fill the form in with these details so you get the right book. Don't forget to mention how many you want too. Then you need to add all the prices up so you know how much your order costs. It's ok if you want to choose books for other family members too, there is no limit to how many books you can choose but check how much it all comes to and ask your parents if you are allowed to do this first!
The catalogue that is provided is for lots of schools across the nation and some schools prefer to use the credit card option that is mentioned in the catalogue, but we prefer cheques or cash please to keep things simple. Cheques should be made payable to St Mary's School Fund or the exact amount of cash can be put into an envelope with your name and year written on the front. We can't place your order until your books are paid for in full.
You need to hand it in to either your teacher or directly to Mrs Kociak in her office. Mrs Kociak will wait until she has other children's orders too and then she will order your books online for you. Once this is done, she has to wait for about a week before the books arrive in the post. She then sorts through them all, making sure you get all the nice books you've ordered handed to you in your classroom. Pretty cool eh? It's even cooler that for every £1 you spend Scholastic Books reward school with points that we can then spend on new books for the Library or for classroom topics.
