Hello Wingate Wildcats! I hope you are all doing well, considering the circumstances. I wanted to share some information with you that I think will be helpful to keep you busy while at home. Please click on the Pages link on the left hand side of this screen to find several helpful resources. Also, there are some assignments listed under the Assignments tab.  I miss you all, and I hope that we will be back to normal soon!
