This was a school year unlike any other… but that didn’t stop our Firebirds!
The video below recognizes students who completed 150 nightsof home reading. These students have a love of books and a passion for reading that is truly inspiring. Each of them will have their name placed in one of our library books next fall. Until then, congratulations and thanks for being such amazing readers!
The Words Anthology is an annual tradition that celebrates the writing of Burnaby students. This year’s edition, Waves of Words, is especially exciting because it features a piece of writing from one of our Douglas Road Firedbirds, Yiling!
In her prose essay, Yiling describes some of the causes of climate change and shares her hope for a clean, healthy planet. Congratulations, Yiling! (You can read the essay on Page 28 of the Waves of Words Anthology).
Here are two levelled books on the topic of COVID-19. These books can empower beginner readers by letting them read and learn about COVID-19 on their own. The author has shared them for free, so click on one of the images below to download!
