Scholastic Book Orders

Scholastic book orders are sent home monthly. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to order "just right" leveled books for your child to read at home. When you place an order, our class earns points that I can use towards new books for our classroom library!

You have the option of ordering online, using the following link: 
Order here!

Please be sure to enter our class code: JLXQW

If you would rather send the order into school, please make sure all checks are made payable to Scholastic Reading Club. Cash will not be accepted.

Each class/conference schedule will have its own code. All parents in this class/conference use the same code. 
They go to https://ptcfast.com/parentlogin.php in their browser and when prompted enter this code:

For the Parent/Teacher Conferences with Ms. Menduke conferences the code is: 8XN1215737

You don't have to write that down because once you launch the conference, you will be shown the code again. And you can always find it by going to Manage and looking for View/Print Parent Letters.

Class Dojo

We will be using a classroom management tool called Class Dojo to encourage important skills, including working hard and participating. This allows you to see how your child is doing at school and to stay connected with us through updates, photos, and videos from class. Feel free to watch this introduction video here.
