A note from Elo in the Library around our Author Visit this week:

 Hello all,

On Thursday, February 1st, we will be having Michael Wade, author of the “And then it happened” series visiting our school for the afternoon. We will divide the students in 2 groups to come to the learning commons to listen to Michael for 45 minutes each.

Grades 3 and 4 will come down at 1pm

Grades 5 and 6 will come down at 2pm

Elo will talk to our students about the presentation and Michael’s books during library this week. Our Library has several books from the “And then it happened” series, and you can find more of his sample stories online if you log onto www.boysbookshelf.com

These books are excellent for boys who are reluctant readers. Each books has several funny stories that can be read in less than 5 minutes each. Elo is sure it is going to be a hit with our kids!

Students will have the opportunity to purchase signed books at the presentation for the special price of $5.00 each incl. GST, or the entire collection of 13 books for $40.00 incl. GST.. Please make cheques payable to Books for Boys Inc. or bring cash. Parents are welcome to attend! 


Thank you for your time, (all learning is as per my email on Friday!)

~Mrs. M & 5M
