Kidstuff Coupon Books
A Huge Thank You to everyone who returned a Kidstuff Book or a payment this past week! HOWEVER –There are still several Kidstuff Books which are outstanding. Only 3 classes are complete – if you have a student who is NOT in Mrs. Giuliana’s class, Mr. North’s class or Mrs. Stella’s class, then it is possible you have not yet returned anything! Please double check your student’s backpack or your payment records (checkbook). If you receive a reminder notice, please return your book (or your payment if you are purchasing) to your child’s teacher. If you have any questions, or believe that you received a reminder notice in error, please email Lisa Maderna at l_maderna@yahoo.com.
