The Book Bus
Reading to your child is one of the best ways to build vocabulary, improve language skills, and teach him or her to be an independent reader.
To support reading at home, our Book Bus makes daily visits to the EL3/4, EL5, and Grade 1 classes. Just remind your child to hang their book bag at the Bus Stop daily.
