Gr. 7 Read-a-thon a Riot!!!

On Thursday, Nov. 17th, 63 gr. 7 students gathered in our library to celebrate reading and literacy. They brought their pillows, sleeping bags and wore comfy p.j.'s to kick back and read for pleasure. Students browsed the library book shelves and created forts all over the library.

They raised $1340.00 for new library resources. Students listed over 40 new books, magazines and resources they wish to have the library purchase with the fundraising money.

Local acclaimed author Alan Cumyn entertained the participants with storytelling from his latest book, Dear Sylvia. Students actively participated in a Question & Answer session afterwards.

Many students received door prizes by draw and the top fundraisers received gift certificates to Old Navy, Leishman Books and Shoppers Drugmart. Two lucky participants won tickets to the 67's hockey game this Friday Nov. 28th.

Thank You to All Students, Staff and Parents who supported this literacy initiative!
