Stop the Summer Slide!

Losses from the "Summer Slide." "Learning or reading skill losses during the summer months are cumulative, creating a wider gap each year between more proficient and less proficient students."  Go to Scholastic.ca to learn more about the importance of Summer reading.

Stop the Summer Slide! Thank you to Cori Nicholls for creating this document to bring awareness of Langdon's Little Free Libraries, Chestermere Public Library information, the Never Ending Stories book store, and Scholastic's amazing links for parents and children.

LC Club Popsicle Party. As a thank you LC Club for their continued dedication to volunteering, students brought their lunch and had a Mr. Freeze for a treat.  Nineteen door prizes were won.  Each student was able to choose a pencil and bookmark as a parting gift.

Score with a good book! Whether it’s sports books, e-books, road maps, recipes, comics, magazines, audio-books, or videos!  You can’t lose with all the different genres to choose from.

Scroll the 2Learn.ca Enjoy pages for fun links to seasonal pages,  homework help, videos, crafts, and more.

A huge thank you to the Ledoux Family, Schrauwen Family, Nya L, and Anthony I., for the donation of story books to be used in the Learning Commons and classroom libraries!
