Adopted by Coles Conestoga Mall

St Bernadette Catholic Elementary School

Kitchener, Ontario 469 / 275 Books Given

Principal Albert Simoes Our school is located in an area of the city that has a high low-income demographic. There is also a high transiency rate within our student population. And there are many families whose first language is not English, which is increasing each year. We desperately need to add some ESL resources to our library collections, but there is no additional money for this. Many of the books in the library are also aged, worn or tattered, but there are no additional funds to replace them with newer, more current books in better condition. We are thrilled to have been adopted by Conestoga Mall Coles to help us meet the library needs of every one of our students, in all grades, ages and reading levels. Thank you, Coles!

Favourite books Our grade 4 students think the best books in the library are:

Dork Diaries
Dog Man
Amulet
Big Nate
Diary of a Wimpy Kid
