This week we remember those who have fallen and who are now stationed abroad to protect the many freedoms we take for granted.
See our two display tables and display board with print materials and letters from solidiers during WWI and WWII. Learn more about Remembrance Day in Canada through the Canadian Encyclopedia and our History Reference Centre (see right panel, Alpha List of Databases) which provides in-depth coverage of World History and sections on both World Wars.
This week, we will be continuing our work with Gr. 9 Phys Ed. classes, developing quality questions and using our online resources such as GALE Virtual Reference and Britannica Online to research for their Magazine Spread Assignment on Sexuality and Sexual Health. We are also working with ESLD students on Human Rights Issues, ESLE Students around Essay Composition, and welcoming Teacher-Librarians from the East Region for a workshop.
► Plan ahead knowing there will be limited access (e.g., fewer computers to use). Please respect the classes that are in session and remain quiet. The Library may be closed during the following periods (this is subject to change: always check the whiteboard near the entrance):
Monday: Period 2
Tuesday: Remembrance Day Period 2, Period 3
Wednesday: Period 2, Closed after school for East Region Teacher-Librarian meeting
Friday: Professional Activity Day (no school)
*lab/winlab: study spaces/computers are occupied by a class. Please remember to sign out your computers with photo ID during lunch.
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 and work quietly.
