    I'm Graycie Lucy, Hillside's Distance Learning Library Cat

    This is my vintage Hillside tee shirt for Spirit Week!

    I'll bet it would look good on me ... but I don't do clothes. CAT.


    Hillside Spirit!



    I am SO happy to be here! I've always thought I'd make an excellent library cat, but Mom said I couldn't come to school.  This is my big chance!

    While you're on the site, check out my friend Winston's page at:        https://www.tesd.net/Domain/1072

    He is the coolest dog I know ... almost as cool as a cat!



                                                      Let me tell you about a story I liked. 

                                       I read Carla's Sandwich by Debbie Herman . Well actually,   

                                         this very nice lady on Mom's laptop read it to me at:   


                                                   This is such a great invention for cats!

                                                           ...and you might like it too. 

    I like this story because it's about being yourself. We cats don't usually eat sandwiches. The weirdest thing I eat is ants ... yum! But what's your favorite sandwich? Try to come up with a really good description and please email my Mom lucyp@tesd.net with the answer. She won't let me have my own email account :(


    We've had lots of answers to last week's question --- and they all pretty much agree with each other. Everyone talked about the confusion of the boy and the cat --- Am I a cat? Am I a boy? 

                   Well done!
