ALL Eager Reader minutes are entered ONLINE.

All Eager Reader minutes can be entered online at CascadeRidgePtsa.org.  (The student password is green.) Students may record their own minutes, or parents may record minutes for their children.  If you have any questions or run into any problems while entering minutes, send an email to info@cascaderidgeptsa.org and we will be happy to help you. If you do not have access to a computer and internet connection at home, not to worry! Complete a paper log and talk to your classroom Eager Reader representative.

Student Instructions:

  • Please record your minutes at home if you can. Ask your parents for permission to use a home computer, laptop, or tablet to enter your Eager Reader minutes.  Also ask them to watch as you do it the first time so they can help you as needed.
  • Open a web browser (internet explorer, Google Chrome, firefox, or safari). Go to the PTSA website at CascadeRidgePTSA.org and click on the “Eager Reader Student Entry” Link.
  • When you are prompted for the student password, type in green and press Next.
  • Enter your first and last name and choose your grade and teacher.
  • Now you will see your reading log! Enter the minutes that you read each day, and press “Save.”
  • The minutes you entered will show up as ‘Pending.” This means that we are waiting for your parents to approve them.  Your parents will get an email asking them to approve your minutes.  Remind them to open the email and approve your minutes.  If they are not approved by your parents, they will not count!
  • You can visit your online reading log as often as you wish during the week to enter additional minutes. All of your minutes for the week must be entered and approved by Sunday at 10 pm in order to receive prizes for that week!  If you miss this deadline, your minutes will be counted the following week.

Parent Instructions:

To Approve Minutes That Your Child Entered:

We encourage students to record their own minutes if possible.  But you must APPROVE their minutes in order for them to count.  When your student enters their minutes, you will get an email asking for your approval. 

  • The email you receive will contain a link for you to click on. This link will take you to the PTSA website to approve your child’s minutes.
  • When you arrive at the PTSA website, you will need to sign in using your email address and PTSA password. If you have forgotten your password, click the “Forgot your password?” link.
  • You will see all of your students listed. Click on one of them to go to their reading log.
  • Check the “Approve” boxes next to the minutes that you wish to approve, and press Save.
  • Weekly reading minutes must be approved by Sunday evening at 10 pm in order to count! If you miss this deadline, your child’s minutes may be counted the following week and their prizes may be awarded the following week.
