In this week's Wednesday folder, I am  including our very first Scholastic book order!
This is a great way to purchase books for your family and friends at a low price. To order online, simply sign up at www.scholastic.com/bookclubs.
On the parent page, click the "Register" button in the "First Time Here?" section. Register your own user name and password. When prompted, enter the one-time Class Activation Code- LL6LZ.
Once you have placed your order online, the books will be sent directly to our classroom! 
Please place your orders ONLINE only and before the due date.
I will be making the order on that day during my conference time so the books will be delivered to your kiddos in time for Halloween :)
There is a flyer going home with book ideas, but please feel free to explore the Scholastic website for other genres your kiddos might be interested in as well! 
If you have any questions at all-please ask!

Hey Parents,
I am in need of TWO Room Parents this year. The PTO is requesting each class (Virtual and F2F) have TWO room parents.  Room Parent duties will help with communication between the teacher and class parents. They will help organize class parties, teachers gifts, etc. While parents are not allowed on campus at this time, restrictions may be lifted throughout the year, and room parents will need to be in place if that occurs.  If you are interested, please send your name, email and phone number to me and I will forward to Samantha Herington our PTO Vice President.  Thanks!!
