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. 


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