Congratulations Kaya, winner of the Historical Fiction genre raffle! The genre we are focusing on in May is Mystery! Happy Reading!
Fifth graders celebrated Poem in Your Pocket Day this year by illustrating poems of their choice and then sharing these poems and illustrations with their classmates. This creative and engaging program was organised and run by our wonderful library student and volunteer Ms. Chelsea Woods.
Pottermore, the eagerly anticipated online site based on J.K Rowling’s Harry Potter books, is now open to everyone!
Here is a sneak preview:
We are excited that award-winning author, Andrea Pinkney will be visiting the lower school via skype at the end of this month! We have many wonderful books by Ms Pinkney in the library. Start thinking about what questions you would like to ask her when she comes.
Local poet, performer, and youth advocate Elijah Brown will be visiting this month to help us celebrate Poetry and Literacy Month! Mr Brown will perform his poetry for grades 6-8 and run a poetry workshop with the 8th graders.
You can watch some videos of him performing here.
Many thanks to the Parents Organization for the awesome books donated to the library from the recent Book Fair!
