Welcome back teachers

Staff version

Welcome back

The new school year has started and we have plenty of news to share. Library staff was busy over the summer processing the new Science and English textbook adoption. We welcome the English department as they make the transition from print to digital textbooks. Our school library will soon be fully staffed. The school board voted on August 8th to restore librarians to full-time status. We thank the board for this decision and look forward to offering once more those programs and services you have come to expect from us. Please share your ideas on how to deepen the librarian-classroom teacher partnership.
