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. Koichopolos helps out with the kindergarten program.
The library is a very active and busy place! This term our primary students are listening to books which focus on developing a positive Growth Mindset. Students are encouraged to change their thinking when they encounter a setback. Instead of feeling that something is "too hard" or "impossible', we will move towards goal setting to achieve the goal. Understanding that everyone makes mistakes, and the importance of perseverance will help develop a positive Growth Mindset. Primary students may sign out one book during their class library period.
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:
