The Nerd Herd

If your child has shown an interest in joining The Nerd HerdTM Book Club at WCS. Here are some details to get him/her started:
* Book Club is voluntary. It should be something your child is motivated about joining.
* We will have a different book every month for students to get excited about!
* Students will read the book on their own and then come together to discuss the book when completed.
* The Book Club will meet during lunchtime so no need to coordinate another afterschool activity!
* I will be checking in with students and groups will be picked dependent on when they finish the book and take their Accelerated Reader quiz! 

* Students get to wear their Nerd Herd T-shirt on the first Wednesday of the month!

  1. Students can wear their Nerd Herd shirts every day of the week!!!
  2. If you are registered for Nerd Herd, click on your grade level and it will take you to your Team Meeting page!
