Welcome back, Burnaby North Vikings!
After a long, hot summer, it is nice to be back inside the building. Those returning to BNSS may have noticed some new faces around the building. In addition to a whole new admin. team, there is a new teacher-librarian as well – Ms. Strong. We were sad to see Mr. Irwin leave, especially since he was able to put up with us for 5 years! He has moved on to Marlborough Elementary where he will be working with K-7s.
The library has opened as of today and is open Monday – Friday from 8:15-3:45 (though we are often open earlier and close later than official times posted). Please enjoy food, drinks (including water and coffee), gum, and phone calls BEFORE entering the library. Remember, this is an environment of learning. Students are expected to work together or individually without disturbing others. The library offers desktop computers, books, magazines, newspapers, audiobooks, and DVDs for student enjoyment. Check out our library sometime this week!
Here is a list of upcoming events:
