Audreys Book Fair

Our Audreys Book Fair was a success! We received a credit to purchase new books for the Learning Commons. I have been processing student book request forms to ensure the new books get into their hands as soon as possible!

Read-in Week, 2017, at Westbrook!

We were so fortunate to have so many guest readers for our students.

Tololwa Mollel read to our Grade 4 classes!
Graphic Novelist, Jeff Martin, read to the grade 5 classes!
And we were very fortunate to have numerous graduate students from the University of Alberta, Edmonton Firefighters, and our Associate Superintendent, Mike Suderman all read to our students.

What an amazing week to celebrate reading!
