Students may purchase textbooks as well as the required supplemental items for the 2008 - 2009 school year at www.varsitybooks.com. Course lists are enclosed. Please visit the website, click on the course names and purchase the required items. Textbooks will arrive at your home through the mail, while course supplies will be distributed at the school. Please note that items such as the student planbook, photocopying card and PSAT fee (for grades 9, 10, and 11 only) are posted with your daughter’s English course materials and are required.
If you are interested in acquiring used titles, Varsity will have some available for purchase. You can also have your Upper School daughter check the used book postings in NCDS News on First-Class or use the web to search for used titles using the book’s ISBN. For assistance in this process, contact Ms. Pagliocca at (617) 244-4246. Also, Varsity is offering a shipping promotion.
Completed forms are now due back in the Health Office. Please note that if your daughter is participating in a fall sports program, the forms are due before the first practice.
Please inform the Health Office if your daughter’s health has changed over the summer.
