Book Character Dress-Up Day: Monday, October 30
All staff and students are invited to participate in our annual Book Character Dress-Up Day, Monday, October 30. Simply come in costume dressed as a character from a book - real or imaginary! Just remember to bring the book that matches your costume!
Early Learning/Grade 1 Decorated Library Bags
Students in EL 3/4, EL 5, and Grade 1 with a decorated blue library book bag will receive a free gift book. Books will be distributed at the end of October.
You are encouraged to help your child BLING their library book bag: Sew, glue, or paint on the bag... Add ribbons, beads, or flowers… Make it a one-of-a-kind creation!
***Decorate the back of the bag only. Do not cover name & number.***
Unplug & Play
Staff members and Secondary students are invited to come by the Media Centre during lunch break on Thursdays in October to play board games. Come relax and play without technology!
The Media Centre has a variety of board and card games available, but you can bring your own as well!
In honour of International School Library Month we're encouraging our caring students to take action in the Media Centre.
Students in grades 4 and 5 can apply to be part of the Media Centre "Minions." Applications are due 2 October and training will happen throughout the month.
Some CAS students volunteer in the library, but we are very interested in developing a broader Secondary School volunteer program. Announcements will be in the student bulletin for anyone eager to be involved in the planning, brainstorming, and creation of this new program!
