Wildcats Read List for 2014-2015 makes great summer reading!
The Wildcats Read list for 2014-2015 is available online hereYou'll find fifty books chosen to appeal to the wide variety of reading levels and interests of Whitman students. The goal is to have every student and staff member read at least one book from the list each school year, and a great way to do that is to read one (or more) over the summer! When school starts, students can tell Ms. Gustafson or Ms. Bowman about what they read over the summer to be entered in the prize drawings held each month during the school year. All the titles are available at the public library.
