Festival du Livre!


Festival du Livre is coming toSQE from February 19th-21st!  This scholastic book sale is primarily French books and a great opportunity for our French Immersion parents to stock up for their home libraries. The sale will be open from 8:30-8:55am and 3:00-3:30pm daily.  Check out a sneak peak of available books in the front foyer. Parents who are able to volunteer to sell books during the Festival du Livre please email Ms. Antonios at rantonios@sd48.bc.ca with a time you are available!

The Library Book Review Challenge continues!  We have over a hundred entries so far! Complete a Book Review sheet from the Library for every book you read and submit it back to the Library to be entered. 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. All of the entries are being displayed in and around the Library so take a look if you’re searching for a good book!  The Challenge ends February 28th.
