A new initiative is coming to Brooksbank! The staff, librarians and PAC have put their heads together for a new exciting literacy event for the kids. We would like Brooksbank to celebrate learning, reading and books with some classroom activities and a fundraising element to raise money for the school library.
There will be reading activities and fun throughout the week, including a read-a-thon across Canada, bookmark exchange, buddy reading and a whole-school-story writing events. On Thursday 13th, we will celebrate the week with a costume parade and assembly beginning at 11:30, parents are welcome.
