Dear 6th Grade AMS Parents:
We are asking this year that parents purchase the novel we are planning to teach to our 6th graders. The title of this novel is The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate. This allows students to read the novel at home and use it for highlighting, underlining, and annotating. You may order the book through your teacher’s Scholastic webpage for $5.00. By purchasing your student’s novel through Scholastic, we earn free books for our classroom. When you order the novel through Scholastic, it will be shipped to your child’s teacher at Apex Middle School. You are also welcome to obtain the book on your own, or if purchasing is a problem a copy will be given on loan. Please do not order eBook copies, as students will not be able to annotate the text.
Please make your purchase by Thursday, January 26th
