Reading Buddies is a reading program where teens and children are paired up for one-on-one reading in a safe, fun and friendly environment. Younger children will gain practice reading with a caring teen mentor. Teens will develop leadership experience and community involvement. Each child will be paired with a teen who likes to read and has attended a training workshop provided by the library. Reading will take place in the children’s area and the program room. Each session will be supervised by a librarian. Click here for more info Brochure Parent-information-sheet-Tommy-Douglas-2016
Stormy weather that will include strong winds and heavy rainfall is expected over the next several days. As we enter the fall and winter storm season, please take the time to review how to learn if your child’s school might be closed for the day. This could happen due to damage, power outages or another circumstance that would make it impossible to operate safely. Information about a specific school or district-wide closures will be shared with Metro Vancouver radio stations and posted on the front page of the Burnaby School District website www.sd41.bc.ca . The information will also be tweeted out, so follow us on Twitter @burnabyschools . Please CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE or go to the District website and click on the Winter Weather Info button.
