Second Steps: Child Protection Unit

The Second Step program is a social skills program that we’ll be implementing in our district. One component of the program is the Child Protection Unit. There was a letter about it in your child’s Tuesday Folder yesterday. Please make sure to read it carefully and to sign it and return it only if you do not want your child participating in the instruction. These opt-out forms are due by next Tuesday, May 9. You can go online to and login with the activation key CPU3 FAMI LYG3 to get more information about what we’ll be learning.

Scholastic Book Club

On Monday, our March book box came and students were able to take home the books they purchased. Each month, you have the opportunity to order books from the Scholastic catalog. Catalogs go home in Tuesday Folders once a month. If you would like to purchase books, the easiest way to order is online at If you decide to order online please use our class code N8DDF to help us earn free books for our classroom and ensure that your books are delivered to me to hand out to your child. If you are unable to order online, you may pay with cash or check and bring to school by the end of the month with the completed order form. I place the class order at the end of each month so everyone has the opportunity to order books.

Thank you and happy reading!
