Principal Tony Churchill Harrison Public School students love to read!!! We continue to strive to offer our students new and interesting books to keep them reading. By adding new books every year, we believe it will help our students stay interested in reading and nurture their creativity and imagination as they get older and progress in their education. With a smaller budget, we are limited in the number of books we can add every year. Our school could benefit immensely with the addition of even more books. Our kids have a passion for reading and we appreciate all and any support that can be offered.

Reading is such an important part of my life. I read almost daily! It's a great escape from the everyday. I love that I can pick up a book and be transported to a different time and place!
Robert Munsch’s Mortimer Be Quiet was my childhood favourite picture book. This story, after read by my parents, helped ease the constant nightly battles we’d have. With a “Courtney. Be Quiet!” a difficult situation was quickly defused.
I am supporting this school because the students at Harrison deserve the opportunity to continue to develop as readers and to have access to great books. Being a smaller school with a limited budget, it can be difficult to receive the resources. This would be a great way to add to the schools ...
Harrison is a great place to be! Children love seeing new books and many often take out the same book 2 or 3 times because they have fallen in love with the story line or characters. Harrison's library has fostered the love of reading in many students and will continue to do so through new ...
Thanks to all Harrison staff, we appreciate you!
I am supporting this school because promoting literacy and getting students excited about reading is important.
Harry Potter. It was a book I read to my own children. It was the first chapter book my son read on his own as well.
I think I would have to say my grandmother helped me fall in love with reading. Although, when I knew her, she was not a big reader. I don't picture her with a book in hand. However, she always had a fantastic memory and could recite poetry she learned as a child in school. Her journey in ...
I’m supporting Harrison Public School because it’s a small school that has an amazing staff who care deeply for their students. They instill a love of reading in all their students at a young age and this adoptaschool project will help to add new, exciting titles to their library.
Nancy Drew stories. There was so much mystery, I couldn't wait each day to get back to my book after school.
Being a teacher at the school, I see how excited the students get when they come back from library period with their new selections for home reading. It is as if they have received a new toy, something bright and shiny that they are eager to explore and tell others about. What a great gift ...
Reading is important to me because I've always l valued my independence. Being able to read on my own meant I was opening a million doors all at once because all of a sudden I could learn anything I wanted by starting to read about it!
My parents loved to read, and shared that passion with me. From the time I was a small child our home was filled with books, and we would often spend evenings reading together. My dad loved mysteries, and we would talk about the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew mysteries I enjoyed over dinner. He was ...
I’m supporting this school because the students love to read and they deserve to have new books! It is so great to see kids fall in love with a new book or author and buy giving them new books we will get to see the excitement on their faces.
Reading is important to me because it’s something you can do for entertainment for your entire life. It doesn’t have to cost any money and it can transport your mind and imagination to places you’ve never been before.
