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.

Back when I was in elementary school, School Librarians were full time in the library and accessible and available Monday to Friday. I remember my grade four teacher, Miss Luckheart, ensuring that we visited the library one to two times a week. Miss Luckheart always did a read aloud. She made ...
As a child I was an avid reader. I loved the feeling of being transported to different times and places simply by opening the pages of a book. My mom knew that if I wasn't in or around the house she could usually find me in the barn on the bale stack reading a new book I'd brought home from ...
As a child one has an impression of what life should be like. As a child we know we love our families despite any sad or upsetting obstacles. As a child reading often takes us to a fantasy life that helps us escape from our troubles or our worries. Little House on the Prairie was my favourite ...
Creative Thinkers. Critical Thinkers. That is my wish for the students at Juniper Ridge. The way to develop these types of thinkers is by promoting reading and research. As the principal of Juniper Ridge, I nominated our school because reading and literacy, both text print and in digital form ...
