Paetow Library

Welcome to Paetow High School Library!

In this season of intermittent online learning from home, we want to ensure you have easy access to all our digital resources. Katy ISD provides many of them through MyKatyCloud, and we have many others purchased for Paetow students and staff on MackinVIA. See below for more information!
