Leaf Through a Good Book!

Welcome back to the Learning Commons!

Fall into Reading! Thank you to all families who signed  up for the Chestermere Public Library promotion in June. Students will continue to be encouraged to "fall" into the many genres of literature.  Click on the Destiny Discover eBooks to read Follett e-books.

This  month textbooks will be signed out to gr. 6-9 students.  The Learning Commons also offers LC orientation, keeping in mind 21st. century skills, to aid students in utilising the space and the numerous resources available to them.  Grades K-5 classes will start visiting the Learning Commons the second week of September.

The LC is here to support the research and learning needs of students as well as to provide opportunities to develop a lifelong love of reading.  Check out the e-resources available to students.

There are new books and old favourites.  Come see what’s available today or visit the Koha page.

Scholastic Book Fair will be announced at a later date.

Thinking about volunteering at the school? The Learning Commons is always in need of a helping hand especially during book fair time.

Learning Commons Club for students in grades 4-9 will be announced soon.  Thank you to the LC Club (grades 4-9) and Ms. Nicholls who volunteered last school year shelving returned books and helping out with daily activities.  You’re amazing and your efforts are appreciated!

Calling all missing books!  Please check for textbooks and library books that are long overdue. If you are receiving a Koha email, it means that there is either a hold, book due back, an outstanding overdue or lost book. Once an item is returned, Koha will not send out a notice. Misplaced texts and books can be returned anonymously to the school. Lost or damaged book costs will be invoiced via School Cash or issued from the Learning Commons.

Thank you to everyone for returning their borrowed items on time!
