Principal Renee Pick and Sherri O'Sullivan (Teacher Librarian) First of all, thank you for the opportunity to apply for the Adopt A School Program.

“View Royal K-5 School continues to provide quality educational experiences to all children, within a caring community of learners.” This is our school mission statement, and we are applying for Indigo's Adopt a School Program to help us continue to accomplish this mission. Teachers and students come to our Library, daily, for resources to support their teaching and learning. They also come to the Library to look for books that appeal to and interest them. Teachers should feel confident that a recommended resource is in their own school Library and students should be able to find books that interest them ‘just because’. Having these types of books will not only make the students eager to come to the Library, but will also encourage the students to be interested in reading more books: a double bonus. I would love to update the Library with newer, more appealing and relevant books for our students and teachers.
It is near impossible to update our collection solely with government funding. Having programs like this one will really benefit our school community.
Once again, thank you for this opportunity!
