Library Corner June 

May was a fabulous month in the Library!  So many great events happening.  We kicked off May with Alessia Dickson, teen author, speaking to Grades 7 & 8.  What an inspiring story!  We look forward to her sequels to The Crystal Chronicles in the coming months and years!  Students in grades 3 to 6 were entertained by Michael Wade, the author of the And Then It Happened series.  We learned that anyone can be an author and we learned how to make our writing funny to entertain readers.   


Battle of the Books 

What a great turn out we had for Battle of the Books.  There were over 30 participants who came to the Library every Thursday to read, test their knowledge of what they had read and be apart of a fabulous reading club!  Two teams were selected to represent Dr. Roberta Bondar Public School at Herbert G Carnegie Public School.  The teams dressed in characters from books.  Our school dressed up as Colossal Canada and the football team from Just My Rotten Luck.  Congratulations to DRBPS Team #2 who placed and congratulations to DRBPS Team #1 who placed second in the competition.  The exciting part of the competition was DRBPS Team #1 tied with Herbert G Carnegie at the end of the questions.  The two teams went to a lightening round, where they had to answer as many questions in 2 1/2 minutes.  Carnegie finished with 20 points and DRBPS finished with 16.  A very exciting ending to the competition.  We hope all the participants enjoyed being part of Battle of the Books!  Thank you to Ms. Del Priore, Mrs. Tobin, Ms. Weatherston and all our DRBPS families who came out to cheer!  We hope to see you next year!
