HAPPY GROUNDHOG DAY!

Will Wiarton Willie see his shadow? If he does, it means we will have six more weeks of winter. If he doesn’t, we will have an early spring! Find out on February 2nd.

The library is still being used for testing, so all classes will visit the library for a quick book exchange on either Thursday or Friday this week.

January 16 – 20, 2012 Happenings

This week it has been very busy in the Library. All classes are visiting on either Monday or Friday to do book exchanges. From Tuesday to Thursday, the Library is being used for online testing.

Ms. Lehnert went book shopping this week and bought over 150 new books for the Library! There is a great mixture of nonfiction, fiction and picturebooks, that Ms. Lehnert will be very busy processing in the next few weeks. Stay tuned for more updates…

Welcome Back to School!

The Library has many new books to start off the year! New books will be available for viewing near the end of next week (Sept. 12-16), and will be available for taking out the following week, after everyone has had a chance to browse. The Library officially opens on Monday, Sept. 19th, for classroom visits and activities. See you then!

April Library Happenings

This month will be quite busy in the Library! Division 1 (gr.7) will be conducting research on famous French-Canadians.

Division 10 (gr.3/4) will be writing Haiku poems in honour of National Poetry Month; Ms. L. and Mr. S. will be collaborating on a project inspired by the book Guyku: a year of haiku for boys┬áby Bob Raczka and Peter H. Reynolds. Of course, we have created “Galku” for our aspiring female haiku writers! Stay tuned for more details…

Division 14 (gr.2) will be learning how to research and take notes about a favourite animal. We’ll be using books and the laptops for conducting research.

Aboriginal Circle will be held in the Library on Monday, April 11th.

Thank you to students Emily, Joanna and Katherine, for decorating the Library for Easter. It looks fantastic!
