Hewitt's Creek Public School

Barrie, Ontario 167 / 700 Books Given

Principal Nancy Jones Hewitt's Creek has been open for 10 years. The initial collection of materials was donated from a school building that was closing. This meant that most of the collection contained non-fiction and fiction materials that were not attractive to the students and outdated content that often did not match current curriculum expectations. It would be beneficial to have new materials that we could use for inquiry based learning in Science, Social Studies, History and Geography. It is also important that there is a variety of materials that could be accessed by students at various levels which include our English Language Learners. Graphic Novels and fiction materials for our Grades 5-6 students is also a priority as these students are eager to dive into books that are longer in length and are able read for longer periods of time.
