Hewitt's Creek Public SchoolBarrie, 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that most of the collection contained non-fiction and fiction materials that were not attractive to the students and outdated content that often did not match current curriculum expectations.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.
Grade K-1 Pete the Cat Picture Books
Grade 2 Flat Stanley Youth Fiction Books

I'm supporting the school because I have a child who is an avid reader who would be thrilled to see some new books be added to the current collection. I also have a child who is a reluctant reader who I'm hoping will find a book or two that really interests him and inspires a life long love of ...
Hewitt's Creek is a fantastic school and I'd love to help the school receive more books for the library.
Three books every school library should own are - “Rosie Revere Engineer”, to challenge gender norms and build a resilience mind-set; “Anne of Green Gables” - classic Canadian Literature about a feisty redhead truly ahead of her time; and anything by Judy Blume, because growing up is weird and ...
Every school library should be equipped with the following three books, 1. Heidi Heckelbeck Says "Cheese", 2. Judy Moody Declares Independence and 3. Don't Stress (How to Handle Life's Little Problems). These three books bring great joy, some perspective on everyday life and lots of laughs ...

Reading is so important because it helps you learn, expands your mind, helps you get lost in a fantasy world, and so so much more! Reading is for everyone and is so special how it can be done alone, as a pair or gather a group to all enjoy. You can have a book with pictures or without that let ...
Reading connects you to different perspectives, experience life in new ways, and discover far off parts of the universe that you never could have imagined. Reading brings knowledge and that knowledge is power. The power to be who ever, do what ever, and be where ever the imagination takes you. ...
Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery. I wasn't a big fan of reading before my family took a trip to Prince Edward Island and we visited Green Gables. I bought the book at the gift shop and immediately read it over the course of our holiday. My parents couldn't get me to put it down, ...
Hewitt's Creek is a great school. I have 3 children enrolled that greatly benefit from all of the reading resources available. Any new material will help all students to increase their love for reading. New books means more reading interest!!!!

The Learning Commons at Hewitt's Creek is such a wonderful place in our school for students, staff and community members to meet and learn together. The bright windows, many learning spaces and inviting furniture adds to the environment. It is so important to provide enriching materials for our ...
Reading helps expand vocabulary, see different perspectives, and learn new things.
Reading is so important to me because it allows me to take time to quiet all the noise while growing and learning something new. It’s dedicated time to unplug. It’s time I can cuddle up and take time out of my busy day to tune everything else out and just be in the moment. We all need that!
Reading is truly an escape from boredom and monotony. Books provide the opportunity to travel anywhere in the world, learn about any topic imaginable, become any character you wish. Reading is the basis for knowledge.
There have been 45 books donated so far! What a great community who supports the love of reading and books. The students at Hewitt's Creek are very lucky. We appreciate your donation. Ms. Thurlow Teacher-Librarian
Hewitt's Creek deserves these books. Mrs. Thurlow is dedicated to making the most of the school library.
