What is a Learning Commons?
A Learning Commons is a common, or shared, learning space that is both physical and virtual. A Learning Commons supports a student centred approach that emphasizes active and collaborative engagement and encourages the co-creation of knowledge by all learners.
January is Literacy Month!
This January, we are celebrating two initiatives - Family Literacy Day and Children's Multicultural Book Day, both which fall on January 27. We have declared the entire month of January to be Literacy Month!
Multicultural Children's Book Day helps us to become more culturally aware and Family Literacy Day helps to raise awareness of the importance of reading and engaging in literacy related activities as a family. We will be enjoying guest readers, skyping with authors, hosting an author visit and having a school wide pajama party on January 26. Parents and families are invited to the pajama party, and we will be taking time out (9:20 - 9:50) to DROP EVERYTHING AND READ school wide on that morning.
