Welcome to the Learning Commons page, dedicated to information about our school library. Our library is led by teacher-librarian Ms. Natasha Allen and Ms. Sweetman helps out with the kindergarten program.
The library is a very active and busy place! We have recently added some new furniture to our space, students are enjoying sitting on beanbags, stools and at cafe tables. Come check them out!
For term two we are reading books from Forest of Reading. The Forest of Reading is a selection of books for various grade levels selected by the Ontario Library Association. One of its goals is to help celebrate Canadian books, publishers, authors, and illustrators.
Our primary students are listening to the Blue Spruce books and will vote for their favourite in the Spring. The junior students are reading the Silver Birch books and intermediates are reading books from the Red Maple selection.
Junior and intermediate students may visit the library during class time with teacher permission to sign out up to 2 books with a two-week loan period.
The library is open from 8:30 to 4:00 each day. Students also have an opportunity to visit at recess.
Here is the library recess schedule:
| ||Day 1||Day 2||Day 3||Day 4 ||Day 5|
