Update about Scholastic Book Orders:

For those families interested in ordering books on-line, our class account (which is under Mrs. Fraser and Mrs. Mouro's names) will be available on-line tomorrow afternoon. If you decide to order on-line, families still need to hand in the order forms to the classroom teacher.

Also, someone handed in their book order with cash and no name, please come and exchange the money for a cheque as soon as possible. We cannot accept cash.

Thank You

Dear Parents,

Just a reminder that on Friday September 22nd - All Scholastic Book orders are due. No late orders will be accepted.

Also, students have been assessed on their reading so leveled readers will be going home this Friday, September 22nd.

Please practice reading with your child every night. Also, please make sure to place the leveled reader back in their Book Buddy Bag every night so they can practice at school as well. We will be having guided reading groups at school so we need the books back everyday.

Leveled readers will be exchanged on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays in the morning.
Please make sure to write down in their Home Reading log that they have read their books and that they have coloured in a book in their Home Reading log sheet as well. For every ten books they read, they will earn a sticker which will be placed by their name in our Motivation Station.

If a child forgets to bring back their book, they will not be able to exchange books that day. We must have their old book in order to exchange for a new one.

Thank You
Mrs. Mouro
