Principal Carol DeFehr We are always looking for ways to update our collection and have relevant and current fiction and non-fiction titles to encourage our students love and commitment to reading.OUR SCHOOL IS GROWING! We will be the largest school in the city with 20 DIVISIONS! We also have 74 Kindergartens starting at our school which is a challenge and so exciting at the same time! We need more EARLY level books to offer our youngest readers. We are also trying to support our new curriculum. This is my second year as Principal at Juniper. My Teacher Librarian, Nicole Gorman, is absolutely committed to literacy and the teaching involved in her role. She even does 2 Book Fairs a year trying to raise funds. It is clear that Literacy is a foundational skill both teaching staff and parents truly deem as a priority.
I have been a part of the Chapters/Indigo Campaign for years and I am hoping our needs of being SO HUGE will make us the chosen school for this year's campaign. We need more books based on our huge population.
"The key to innovation is young people" -Alan Shaver (President TRU)
We need to provide reading materials that innovate them and inspire children. Our motto is #bebetterallthetime and #alwaystry and having more books would certainly help us.
Respectfully,
Mrs. Carol DeFehr
