Summary – Scholastic book orders due Friday, Halloween disco Thursday, book, DVD and CD donations requested, Student of the week

Whole school

Scholastic book orders
One of the best gifts a parent can give a child is the love of good books. Each year at Montmorency South Primary School we participate in Scholastic Book Club.  Although we usually only run 4 of the 8 issues, we have decided to run Issue 7 as an extra as it is nearing Christmas and it contains many wonderful books which would make great gifts.  As a parent, however, you can go on the Scholastic website at any time and browse each issue when it comes through and organise it to be delivered to your home if it is one we are not running.

Attached you will find all the information on how to register for the LOOP payment platform that you will need to order books.  The books will take approximately two weeks to arrive at school after the closed due date of this Friday 26th October.   Each order helps earn free books for our school, however there is never any obligation to buy.

If you are buying books for your child as a present, please email me on if you would like me to hold them temporarily in my office for you. If I am not advised, when the books come in they will go straight to your child’s classroom.

Orders can only be made via the LOOP.  Please do not send payment to school.

Visit or download the app in App Store for iPad/ iPhone or find it on Google Play for Android..

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me via the above email.

Thank you
