Chancellor HS

November 2-6

Hello, November! As we enter a season of gratitude, we're reflecting on the things we’re most grateful for here at Chancellor - our students. Even though we are physically distant from most of you, we are always thinking of ways to connect with you and support you.


As always - Need a book? Have a question? Let us know. We're happy to help! A friendly librarian is only an email away!


~Mrs. Jett-Brown, Mrs. Turner, & Mrs. Phillips~

Step Aside Netflix, Try Bookflix Instead

We've all binge-watched a few series on Netflix during the pandemic, but we have a new suggestion for you - Bookflix! Mrs. Phillips has curated a fabulous collection of titles in Chancellor's very own Bookflix collection. All of the titles are binge-worthy, and you can still create your own list. What are you waiting for? Try Bookflix today! Email your librarians with questions.

Book of the Week

Bonechiller

by Graham McNamee

Danny is sick of running. Harvest Cove is the latest nowhere place he's drifted through with his dad. In summer, people come to stay in cottages on the vast lake. In winter, Harvest Cove is a ghost town hidden away in Canada's Big Empty. Danny's been running forever, but Harvest Cove might be his last stop. The place has a way of making people disappear. As the cold sets in, Danny and his new friends stumble on a centuries-old nightmare. They start seeing things. Impossible things. And in winter, there's no escape from Harvest Cove.

November 4th - International Stress Awareness Day

The first Wednesday in November, International Stress Awareness Day, aims to help us identify and reduce the stress factors in our lives. Everyone has stress. Some stress is good for us. It helps us to respond to changes in life, and stress is our body's way of protecting itself from harm. However, too much stress causes harm to our health and our relationships.


Check out this book from our library collection -

Chill: Stress-Reducing Techniques for a More Balanced, Peaceful You
