  • Book Orders -   Class Code GM36Q. 
  •  You may order books for your child online at any time and I will submit another order on May 11. You can browse Scholastic Book Club and shop online at your convenience. Items you add to your cart are kept in the website on your order for you to view, add to, or change any time prior to my submission of the order. Scholastic Book Club Order forms are sent home periodically as we ge these for you to browse together but you are not limited to just these books only. Many more selections are available online incuding math topics, science, historical books. Also remember you are welcome to order for your older or younger children with us.

Mrs. Kathleen Thibodeaux



Students are encouraged to read every night if possible!   We have scheduled library time on Tuesdays for story time with Mrs. Windham; there are not provisions for checking out any books through her. I would encourage students to be reading every night, and they  may borrow books from me through our class library. Please keep the borrowed book in your child’s backpack so they can read it during the day here at school as time permits. Unfortunately we do not have internet access for students to take AR tests at this location. Please monitor your child’s book levels to be sure they are challenging without being too difficult.  Students may read nonfiction books as well as fiction since many students find these quite interesting.
