Adopted by Coles Station Mall

Parkland Public School

Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario 337 / 159 Books Given

Principal Maurice Dugas The books that are currently in the library are outdated, not only in age, but in terms of topic and interest.
The students find it difficult to find books that are part of a series (i.e., Harry Potter, 39 Clues, How to Train Your Dragon). The older students often venture out the public library to get books that they are interested in.
There are more boys at the school than girls in the primary division and there is a need to increase the non-fiction books that, typically, but not always, boys are more drawn towards. There is a significant percentage of students not reaching the provincial standard in reading at Parkland and hopefully, with a more diverse and interesting library collection, students will be more interested in reading and that will positively affect their reading success.
Hopefully, we will be selected to participate in the Adopt a School Program.

Favourite books The Top Five Books/Series/Authors are...
Harry Potter series
Robert Munsch books
Diary of a Wimpy Kid
Spy School series
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom
It was interesting to learn about the variety of interests at the school!
