Explore your Genius this year!

Welcome back to another fun and productive year in the LM Learning Commons!

Even though the background to this newsletter is books, our Learning Commons this year is definitely about more than just books! Our theme is "EXPLORE YOUR GENIUS"! From our early years to our middle years to even our staff, we hope to find the genius in you and help you pursue your passion this year. Whether you explore it through books, in our Makerspace, online, through inquiry or connecting with others, your library staff is here to help you find your "genius" this year!

Introducing your library staff and scheduling for 2015/16

Your Teacher Librarians:

Heather Eby - Day 1, 3 and 4 with gr.4 - 8 and Kindergarten

Martine Blanchet - Day 2 and 6 with gr.1-3

Your Library Technician:

Linda Plexman - Full time 8:30 - 4:00

The library will be free on Day 5 for special guest presentations, supervised small groups or large classes, and of course Makerspace Moments!

Looking ahead....

Martine and I are excited to be working together this year and have big plans for the learning commons this year. We have planned to each have one "Flex" day in order to co-teach with you, either in the classroom or in the library. Our hope is to support your curricular goals and assist with technology integration (ie. ipads, digital literacy, genius hour, inquiry projects, literature circles and more).

Once our timetable is set up for the year, we can't wait to start co-planning and working with you and your students!
