St. Bernard Catholic Elementary School

Toronto, Ontario 308 / 690 Books Given

Principal Maria Aloisi Let's pick up where we left off!!

Our students ABSOLUTELY LOVE NEW BOOKS! In an age where screen time seems to be on the increase, our students still cannot get enough books, which is a great problem to have! As Dr. Seuss says, "The more you read, the more you know. The more you learn, the more places you'll go!" and we want our students to reach those heights and journey to greater successes, whether it be in their futures on in the stretches of their imaginations! Over the past two years, the St. Bernard Community and friends of St. Bernard have supported this amazing "book boost" for our almost 700 students. Your contribution will definitely be put to great use--our library books do not collect dust--and that is for certain. Our students LOVE their BOOKS!!! Please support and help our community nurture our reading community of the St. Bernard Bears. :)

We at St. Bernard cannot thank you enough for your contribution. We could not do it without the support and generosity from our surrounding communities!

On behalf of the St. Bernard community, THANK YOU!

Thanks to a very generous pledge of $1400 from the people at TD Bank, matched to the tune of $700 from Indigo, our school has now nearly tripled our $1000 goal! There is only one week left, so we'll be striving even higher, beyond $3000! Go Bears!
