For all students in grades 6-12, we have purchased new digital content! Enjoy e-books through our new MYP/DP digital library!

 

The student reading app by OverDrive, Sora, provides the quickest and easiest way to get started with digital titles from our school. Students can simply log in using school credentials and instantly access eBooks on virtually any device. Get started today by opening the free Sora app for Android or iOS.

For easy access, our school’s setup code is westlaketx.

 

 

What’s great in Sora:

  • Easy on-boarding
  • One-tap borrowing and reading
  • Fun reading achievements and avatars
  • Quick access to assignments
  • Unified experience across devices

Virtual Author Visits Coming This Fall

 

Our grade six and grade three students will enjoy a skype visit with these authors this fall. Sixth grade students will have the opportunity to hear from Jennifer Nielsen and our third grade will learn from Sandra Markle.

 

   

 

I am including a link to a Washington Post article that discusses the key components of time and choice and their relationship to reading for pleasure! 

 

Washington Post Article: If we stop telling kids what to read, they might start reading again.
