Coming Soon…. Makerspaces in our Library!!

Posted September 17, 2016

We are hard at work to incorporate Makerspaces into our Library space. A Makerspace is an area where students can think, explore and create with many different materials and resources. To help get us started, we are trying to collect lego (even random pieces), cardboard, paper rolls and wool/yarn.

We would greatly appreciate any materials and hope to share pictures of our new space soon.

Thank YOU!

Posted September 12, 2016

As the new school year begins, there is one quote that educators wish that all students would consider they enter their new classrooms, “making mistakes is part of life—and a really big part of growing up.

Dogs on School Property

Posted April 14, 2016

We request that when you are walking your child(ren) to and from school you do not bring your dogs onto school property. While you may know that your dog is friendly, other youngsters who are not used to dogs may become anxious when unknown animals are around. Also, we can never be sure that a dog=s behaviour is completely predictable, especially in large groups of strangers.  Thank you in advance for your support regarding this matter.
