This week, the Library Learning Commons will work with Gr. 10 Civics classes to help them decipher Fact from Opinion in articles from our Canadian Points of View database (username/password in front of agenda, p22 ). We will also be using Comic Life with Gr. 9 Science classes to make some dynamic presentations.

Plan ahead knowing there will be limited access. Please respect the classes that are in session and remain quiet.

The Library will be closed:

Wednesday:  Period 2
Thursday:  Period 2

The library is reserved for quiet work when a lesson is being taught. Do your part to keep the Library fully accessible during lunch periods: work quietly.
