Scholastic Book Club issue #1

The 1st issue of Scholastic Book Club 2016 is here!

The brochures will be distributed over the next few days at usual places- the Millennium Swimming and Sports, Tuesday gymnastics, the monthly Cafe Night… OR you can pick up a set from the Homeschool Library (housed at the North Shore YMCA).

OR you can go online to view the brochures via

DUE DATE is: (5:00pm) Thursday, 3rd March 2016.

IMPORTANT NOTE: For some time, Scholastic has made provision for families to make and pay for their own orders online at the Scholastic LOOP online payment website (

While you can still drop the paper order form to me or email the order through to me, ordering via the LOOP website is now my preferred option. It’s a straightforward process to use the LOOP website and there’s a handy ‘How-To’ video if you do get stuck (but you won’t!). Any orders made on the LOOP website still have to be made under the school name of ‘HASCA Homeschool’ and the orders are still delivered to me to distribute to our families.

Some themes in Issue 1: Waitangi Day, Sea Week, Dictionaries, Horrible/Murderous sets and a fair bit of Star Wars (I wonder why…)
