Get off to a good start with reading!

Parents and Students:
There's been no major homework so far assigned (only book pockets and folders)although we have kicked off our pursuit of the 25 books read per student. This means you can expect to see your students reading books form our clasroom libraries.

We also began giving out Scholastic Book Catalogs today and making recommendations for some new popular titles to keep students excited about reading. Parents now have the option to order online directly through Scholastic or to use the traditional paper order form and check. I'd encourage you to try the online order since your child won't have to carry cash or a check to school. The even better part is that for each online order you place, Scholastic donates a free book to our classroom library.

To get started, go to the Web address below and enter the personalized user name and password for Mrs. Izzo's class or Mrs. Jackson's class in the sign-in fields on the right side of the page. Note: You do not need to create your own user name and password.

Go to:

If you have Mrs. Izzo:
User Name: lavillaizzo
Password: marbles

If you have Mrs. Jackson:
User Name: lavillajackson
Password: marbles

Ordering online is the most convenient way to use Scholastic Book Clubs. You can order anytime, right up until the online order due date. You’ll also get instant access to over 500 additional titles plus online-only specials and discounts.
