  • Wildcats Read

    Thanks to everyone who helped make this year's Wildcats Read Together program a success!  If you'd like to watch the Skype session with author Suzanne Selfors or some photos taken the day of the reading event, just log into the Google Classroom!

    As in year's past, WH staff have recorded audio clips of each chapter.  Due to copyright restrictions, and with permission from the publishing company, these recordings will be posted using Google Classroom.  Students will need to log in using their district credentials in order to access the recordings.  Easy to follow directions for accessing the google drive, along with the classroom code for the Wildcats Read Together class, have also been sent home with students.  If you'd like, you can view this 4 minute video showing how easy it is to log in.  We hope you enjoy the book!
