Caring, Kind, Friendly and Safe…
Literacy week is a great opportunity for our school and community to promote literacy and foster a life-long love of reading in our students. Throughout the week students will take part in a school-wide Drop Everything And Read (D.E.A.R.), engage in literacy activities and be visited by guest readers! We will be wrapping up Literacy Week by inviting all parents to come to SQE and read with their child/children on Friday January 24th from 9-9:30am in their classrooms. We hope to see you there!
Book Review Challenge
The Library is having a Book Review Challenge. Complete a Book Review sheet from the Library for every book you read and submit it back to the Library to be entered. You can also complete a review online using Destiny Discover. Tell us what you think of each book and give it a rating out of 5 stars! Each completed Book Review is an entry into a book draw.
***Literacy Week K/1 Story Night***
There will be a story night on Wednesday, January 22th from 6-6:45pm for Kindergarten and grade one students and their parents. Come listen to some great stories in the Library. Don’t forget to wear your PJs! Cookies and milk will be provided.
