Our Poetry Book
Our poetry book is finally available for purchase at LuLu.com. Our original publishing company just didn't work out, but this is less expensive. It is possible to charge extra a LuLu, but the cost you see is the minimum (I don't get a profit.). It is $9.42 + shipping + tax. Mine came to $14.32 (I think.)

Just a first name and last initial is sufficient. CHECK WITH YOUR PARENTS FIRST. Here's a link about privacy: www.viacharacter.org/www/About-Institute/Privacy-Policy (My version doesn't collect birthday or gender.)
Here's the actual link:
Google Classroom: Remember, if it asks for your email, it's firstname.lastname@example.org (your wake id is usually first initial, middle initial, last name)
