Thanks for making Nov 15th Literacy Night a success! Merry Christmas and see you in 2018!

Upcoming Reading Nights are:

Jan 23rd  Rider Themed ,  Feb 27th (possibly) & April 12th​

Our December Literacy Initiative is 12 Books of Christmas!

Students will read a christmas book that is unknown by the chooser and vote daily which book has been the best as they read through the 12.  Each winner will have a book blurb written and put up on a bulb on our Christmas tree in the library. Students will be reading, writing and reflecting throughout these 12 days on some great Christmas classics! 

 " Bucket List Initiative " starting in October ending in November.  A second round will start in January-February.  Teachers have this going in their classes, ask your kids which genres they are reading! each student has an individual "bucket list" to read and "kick" ( complete).  Speaking of bucket list...congrats to Mrs. Roundelle's class who was the first class to complete their bucket list! What a bunch of voracious readers! Well done ! They will be rewarded on Wednesday dec 6th with some tasty floats!

Education Week was a hit! "Showcase the Shinning Willow Awards"  brought a box of 12 new books to our library from the Willow committee! Thank you so much !

Teachers read books that are nominated in Sasaktchewan for the Willow Awards and their students wrote book recommendations and rated each book. The results are posted in the library. Check out our bulletin board!
