 ​​​​​Board Reading Programs

We are very excited that our school is participating in the Forest of Reading program, which is Canada's largest recreational reading program for children and youth! The main purpose of the Forest of Reading program is to foster the love of reading and create lifelong readers.

For each age group, there is a list of ten books by Canadian authors. Readers must read a minimum of five books to be eligible to vote for their favourite book. They may read their books with a buddy, a sibling, or an adult. In April, readers will vote for their favourite Canadian title and therefore participate in selecting the winner of the award for their age group! 
At MGPS we are taking part in the following Forest of Reading programs: Blue Spruce (Kindergarten to Grade 2), Silver Birch Express (Grades 3 and 4), Silver Birch Fiction and Non-Fiction (Grades 5 and 6), and Red Maple (Grades 7 and 8). All K-2 classes are involved, as well as over 130 students in grades 3-8! Any interested students who have not yet joined the reading programs may still do so. Come see Mrs. Kleiner in the library for more information. Happy reading everyone!
