The Cariboo Reads program is a school-wide reading initiative designed to inspire all students and staff in our school to read and talk about great books. With 12 titles in English, there is a range of topics and genres to interest all types of readers in our school community.
We want everyone to participate. Come down to the library and discover our Cariboo Reads display to start your reading journey. There are recommendations for both Junior (Grades 8 and 9) and Senior (Grades 10, 11, and 12) readers, but students are encouraged to try and read as many books as they can. So come on down to the library, sign out a Cariboo Reads title, read it and return it for someone else to enjoy. There is a limit of one Cariboo Reads book per student. Please see Ms. Kawas or Mrs. Ho in the library for more information.
This year’s titles include:
- Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
- When Morning Comes by Arushi Raina
- Out of Darkness by Ashley Hope Perez
- The Walled City by Ryan Graudin
- Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon
- Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard (Burnaby-wide Secondary Reads)

Whatever is beautiful,
Whatever is meaningful,
Whatever brings you happiness…
May it be yours this Holiday Season
and throughout the coming year!
Remembrance Day marks the anniversary of the official end of the World War I hostilities on November 11, 1918.
The common Canadian tradition includes a one-minute silence at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month (11:00am, 11 November), as that marks the time when the armistice became effective in the United Kingdom.

Orange Shirt Day was commemorated on Thursday September 29, 2016 throughout the Burnaby School District, and throughout the Province of B.C on Friday September 30, 2016. The Cariboo Hill library showed our support with this thoughtful display.
