Adopted by Indigo Erin Mills Town Centre

Thorn Lodge Public School

Mississauga, Ontario 431 / 300 Books Given

Principal Sharon Totafurno Thorn Lodge PS is a lovely school where students love to read, discover, learn, and much more! Our Library Learning Commons has become a place where they can do that! There are excellent books to choose from, technology activities, some STEM learning, art options, and more. Keeping our books new and relevant to students is always important and we are excited to be a part of Indigo's Adopt a School program to help us do this!

Our school is full of so much diversity! Students and staff at our school speak over 25 different languages. We are very proud of several of the dual language books we are able to offer to our students. Many of our students are learning English as a second language and some of them speak several languages. Reading is so important to our students in their language acquisition and their eagerness and enthusiasm is evident by how busy our library is on a daily basis as students check out books to take home for reading.

For some of our students buying books is a luxury and that is why building our school library is so important. Having access to excellent literature will help our students become better readers and continue to build their love of reading.

Thank you so much for your support!

Our Thorn Lodge Tiger Team appreciates it!
