Children’s author, Frank Serafini suggests, “There is no such thing as a child who hates to read; there are only children who have not found the right book.”
Christopher Lake Public School believes this to be true. Over the summer of 2017, staff and administrators have created a warm, appealing space, with comfortable seating and pillows. The décor is a blend of trendy, culture and nature –a combination that fits in so well with our community and demographics. We even have a tipi for quiet reading. It is very exciting to hear our children talk about our “awesome library”.
Still, there is one thing lacking –the book collection. Any time spent in the Christopher Lake Public School library, you will see the books that our children being home in their back packs, you can’t help but notice the age and condition of much of the library’s collection. In this day and age, where technology is readily in the palm of our hands, it is a challenge for a “book” to be the choice for kids. Consider the task of trying to instill the value and importance of reading in a world where engaging apps and games on iPads are being challenged by tattered, dog eared books that has been taped and repaired numerous times, and most being published thirty plus years ago? We are in dire need of updating our library’s books to keep our children motivated readers.

When I was in grade 6 I remember receiving the a series of books called the Hardy Boys. I was instantly intrigued by all of the adventures these brothers would go on. During a summer vacation I remember reading most of the books in the series; I couldn't put them down. The ability to read ...

Oh- this is a difficult to answer! There are so many wonderful children’s books. I’ll Love You Forever certainly tugs my heart strings as I remember my own Mother reading it to me as a child and I have since read umpteen dozens of time to my own children. My children get to pick bedtime books ...
My children helped me fall in love with reading again. As a child I have many great memories of my mom and I reading together. I loved to read. It made me laugh, cry and escape to new and exciting times and places. As I grew older I felt that reading became a chore as I was always reading text ...
Christopher Lake School has some of the most dedicated staff I know. Friday they all jumped in a van and headed to Saskatoon with their students wish lists. They spend over an hour hand picking their students favourite books for our library! Thank you to everyone that has made this happen!!!
My oldest child is in grade 1 at Christopher Lake Public School. I was so surprised and proud of how quickly and easily she began reading on her own. I love watching how excited and confident she is when she conquers new words or books. She loves to read and is now teaching her 4 year old ...
I think that reading is important and Christopher Lake Public School needs new books. The books in the library are old and are not interesting. The library needs more graphic novels and non-fiction books.
This is on behalf of the grade one bake sale that was held at our school. Thank you to everyone that bought our baking!!!
This is on behalf of the Lakeland Lions Club. They donated $500 to our Adopt a School campaign.
The Harry Potter series had the biggest impact on my life. I was never into reading until I experienced reading Harry Potter. Since I have read Harry Potter I have read loads of other novels and I love reading new books.
Reading is important to me because it helps you learn and expand what you know. I want my kids to be able to have books that they enjoy and that are interesting to them. Help Christopher Lake Public School get more books!
“Kuplink, kuplank, kuplunk went three small blueberries into Little Sal’s small tin pail, and she ate the rest.” Robert McClosky’s Blueberries for Sal was a favourite that my mother (herself a children’s librarian) read to me time and again, and I cherish the tattered 40-year-old copy inscribed ...
As the grade 3-4 teacher at Christopher Lake Public School, I am tasked with guiding children trough the transition from learning to read to reading to learn. There is a serious gap in our library materials which support this transition. Some students have interests more mature than Dr. Seuss ...

My kids go to CLPS and they love to read. It’s important for all children to have access to high quality books.
When I was 3, I memorize the book “I’ll teach my dog 100 words.” My parents recorded it on a cassette and I still listen to it as an adult and have a little smile.
Proud to support our passionate readers at Christopher Lake Public School

Reading is vital to experiencing the most life has to offer. Without the ability to read, a person is limited. I have watch my own children learn to read and I have helped many remedial readers build skills and confidence to read. In all incidents it is a gift to see the joy as reading opens ...
