Textbooks and Summer Reading

Textbooks

Order your textbooks, lab manuals and workbooks from ClassBook.com, the official bookstore of Matignon High School.  Please click on the below ClassBook.com icon to access the online store and complete your order.



Using your Matignon schedule to see the course name and number, follow these steps on ClassBook.com.

  • Step 1 – enter the student’s first name, last name, and their Matignon e-mail address.
    All Matignon students will receive a Matignon e-mail address at orientation in September and the students will activate those addresses themselves in small groups led by Matignon faculty. 

    The e-mail format on the order page for ClassBook uses the lowercase first name initial followed by the last name @matignon.org.  For example, student John McSmith's email is jmcsmith@matignon.org.

    This e-mail address information will be used by ClassBook to set up the access to e-textbooks in association with class rosters.  E-textbooks used in classes become active at the start of the academic year.
