Consumable Book Lists for the 2019-2020 Academic Year
Barnes and Noble at 2501 W. Happy Valley Road, Phoenix, is holding a Book Fair Event benefiting Anthem Prep | Archway Anthem July 11-14 and again on August 1-4.  Please mention “Anthem Prep” during check out.  A portion of proceeds for all books (not just consumables) purchased will be donated back to our school.  If purchasing your consumables through the Barnes and Noble website during the July 11-14 Book Fair, please enter 12536686 for the Book Fair number.

At the beginning of each academic year textbooks are issued to each student to use at home for the remainder of the year. While at home these textbooks remain the property of Anthem Prep | Archway Anthem and require a deposit that is fully refundable upon return of the textbook in permissible condition. If you would like to purchase an additional textbook please contact the front office for ISBN information.

It is the tradition of Great Hearts and Anthem Prep | Archway Anthem to inspire students to develop a personal library of literary classics they can keep, annotate and return to throughout their academic careers. Therefore we encourage parents to purchase these “Classics to Keep” so that your student may graduate with an impressive library of literary masterpieces. However for families that do not wish to purchase these texts, students will be given access to an academy copy to be used as a part of the curriculum. Students should not mark in the books provided by Anthem Prep | Archway Anthem and should be returned once classwork is finished.

“Classics to Keep” are available through Barnes & Noble. If you would like to purchase these texts please see the provided titles and ISBNs. So that all students use the text aligned with the class and curriculum parents MUST purchase texts with the exact ISBN provided.

Several of the consumables are available only through the Great Hearts portal. As confirmations are received for each order, the books will be placed in your student’s locker or otherwise delivered to your student.  Please go online, to the Great Hearts portal, https://anthemprep.configio.com/ShoppingCart.aspx and order your consumables early.

While the deadline has officially passed, they are still allowing registration for the time being with the discount code. If you want to do the camp but haven’t signed up yet,  now is the time!

This summer (July 22-26) Anthem Prep will host the One10 basketball camp (formerly Advantage Basketball) where players will develop great ball handling skills, shooting and games.  Both boys and girls, from 3rd grade to 12th, are welcome to attend. Deadline to sign up is June 5th.  Please sign up early, spots are limited.

The regular, non AP price is $260 – AP gets a big discount at just $175. This camp is VERY much worth the cost (plus AP Basketball gets $25 for every signed up player). You won’t find many camps in that price range that go 8-5 all week and definitely not in our home gym 🙂

Sign up online and make sure to use the code on the flyer attached to get the discount. Please sign up early, spots are limited. Deadline to sign up is June 5th.

Please see attached FLYER for sign up details and coupon code.
