    Literacy, Literacy, Literacy

    This book wasn't bad but it focused a lot on literacy. I would have like to see the whole picture in terms of what they do with their math curriculum. I would have wanted to hear more about navigating the politics of coming into public school buildings, the lottery they hold. They talked a lot about their staff because they feel it mostly lays on the teachers and the leadership but would have loved to hear about success stories of students struggles.

    Hollyleaf 8

    "We must stay alert!" A RiverClan warrior yowled. Thunderstar pressed on. "And if any Clan finds evidence, we must share it with the other Clans!" Windstar bristled. "And warn them they've been found out? Never!" Riverstar backed away from the other leaders. "I protect my own Clan," he growled. "No other." Hollyleaf gasped as a WindClan cat barged past her, heading for his Clanmates farther down the clearing. All around her, warriors were weaving closer to their denmates. Hollyleaf glanced over her shoulder. A knot of apprentices had broken up and Sweetpaw and Swiftpaw were scurrying back to the ThunderClan warriors. Shadowstar jumped down from the Great Oak. Riverstar slithered down the trunk next, while Windstar glared at Thunderstar before leaping into the clearing. "Hollyleaf." The familiar mew sounded behind her. She spun around to see Fallen Leaves. "Lets go Hollyleaf, there won't be any sharing tongues tonight." He gently guided her towards the tree-bridge with his tail. "Are you worried about these new intruders?" She meowed quietly. "No. There'll be more patrols" he whispered, his muzzle close to her ear. "Who do you think it is?" She asked him, lowering her voice even more. Fallen Leaves didn't answer, but moved closer to Hollyleaf till she could feel his soft pelt brush her flank. Above them, clouds rolled across the sky and the wind lifted, sending waves scudding across the lake. Hollyleaf wished she could tell Fallen Leaves how much he ment to her, but she couldn't be sure he felt the same way. Fallen Leaves pressed closer. "I'm always here if you need me." Rain began to fleck Hollyleaf's pelt. Raindrops began to blur her vision. "Thanks Fallen Leaves" she whispered. "Come on." Fallen Leaves nudged her toward a gap in the stream of cats. "We'll be home before you know it." Fallen Leaves paced the clearing. Rain dripped from the dens, though the clouds had cleared to reveal a clear dawn sky. The Clan was beggining to stir. Nests rustled and the honeysuckle shivered as Sparrowpelt padded yawning from the elder's den. "You're up early!" The aged tom called across the clearing. "I'm waiting for the dawn patrol." Fallen Leaves told him. His claws itched with worry. Would they return with news of more strange cat scents? "You should be resting." Thunderstar bounded down from highledge. "You were out on moonhigh patrol." Fallen Leaves halted. "So were you." They'd crossed the whole territory with Rainwhisker and Fireheart and found cat scent in every gully and hollow. Swiftbreeze poked her head out of the warrior den. "How can any cat sleep knowing the woods are filled with enemies!" "Hush!" Thunderstar shot back, lashing his tail. "Sorry, but shouldn't the Clan know?" She murmured. Thunderstar dug his claws deep into the soil. "Not until I decide how we tackle this." His gaze met Fallen Leaves's. The brambles at the entrance to the medicine den trembled and Featherwhisker pushed his way out. "Jayfeather spoke to me last night," he whispered in Fallen Leaves ear.
