Book Orders

If your child’s teacher does not do book orders in their class, you are welcome to order Scholastic books through me.  Please support your child’s teacher if they do book orders.  You can order online at​ and use the teacher code GXM29. I will submit orders on the following dates: October 26, November 16, December 21, January 25, February 22, March 22, and April 26.  You will need to have orders submitted by then.


Battle of the Books is coming to Whittier 2017-2018 school year!!!

Students in grades 3-6 are invited to participate in the 2017-2018 Battle of the Books. Below is a list of books that will be included in this year’s Battle of the Books competition. You do not need to participate in the battle to read the books. They are great recommendations for reading. If you want to participate in the competition, you will want to get a head start on reading the books.  Many of the books are also nominated for the Beehive Book Awards.  More information about the battle will come after school starts.
