Scholastic Book Sponsors Needed for Butler Elementary Teachers

It’s that time of year again! School is quickly approaching. Butler Elementary School teachers are asking for donations to help their students with getting one free book each month from the Scholastic book orders.

What exactly is a book sponsor?? Each month, Scholastic sends out flyers for students and families in which they feature a monthly book special. What the teachers are asking for is to be able to purchase 1 book per month for each student in their classroom. The total for 1 student would be $14.00. Each classroom needs a sponsor for each student in that classroom.  

This is a great way to get books into the hands of students all year long! They get so excited when the monthly book box arrives!

If you are interested in being a book sponsor for your student classroom, contact their teacher for more details.  By being a book sponsor you are fostering a love of reading with the children!!!
