Principal Stormie Duchnycz Books are the gateway to the adventures that we can make accessible for all students. They allow our students to experience the world and explore their own interests and personal learning. Our students continue to grow, change and expand. Our library must also be able to keep up with our students. At the Greenway library we are in need of finishing many different series of books. The majority of the chapter books in the series in our library are incomplete. Our non-fiction area is lacking in books that reflect interests of technology and innovation. The graphic novels in our library are well loved and used, but need to be expanded to include many new titles. The graphic novel section needs to be divided into 2 separate areas, one that deals with non-fiction or historical fiction and the other that is fiction based. Our picture book section is by far the most outdated area of the library. Although picture books do have a timeless quality, there are so many amazing new titles that are not represented. A large portion of our picture books are over 50 years old and some of them are showing their age. We are responsible for keeping students excited about all there is to experience in the world of literature. This responsibility comes at a cost that is sometimes greater than the public school budget. This is where you could help to bring our reader's adventures to life!

When I first started teaching, 19 years ago, I didn’t really know understand how to teach kids how to read. I knew that fostering a love of books was important; modeling, discussing and making connections to text were also critical, but I just didn’t really know the process to helping young ...
As a child, I lived on a farm in rural Manitoba. There were no computers back then, no video games, and we didn't have a TV until I was in Grade 12. I had asthma and was allergic to the animals and many other things found on the farm, so I wasn't able to help out with any of the farm ...
Enjoy! I always loved reading as a child, and find a small joy when I see another youngster so excited by all types of adventures in books!!

Reading leads to a lifetime of learning.
My early years in school were difficult and I generally spent more time in the hallway than I did in the classroom. I was managed at school more than I was encouraged and it wasn't until grade 4 when our school librarian took an interest in me that I really began to flourish. Mrs. Messiah ...
