St. Monica SchoolCalgary, Alberta 524 / 250 Books Given
Principal Jennifer Gakis
We are an inner city school with a very unique population.
We are upwards of 70% ELL, and we are constantly adapting for new comers and new families to Canada from all over the world. St. Monica is very small and personable, our students and staff have close and lasting relationships; however our budget is so small that often we have to make difficult choices when purchasing for our Library Learning Commons.
The most critical piece of information that I can pass on about our school is how much our students LOVE to read! Our library is full of many loved and used books that have been repaired and re-repaired! Our students are constantly asking if and when we will be getting new books and the excitement during our annual book fair is long lasting and contagious!
Please consider us for your wonderful program and know that if successful our school would benefit more than words could convey.
