MacGregor - Heart of the keystone province. Have a heart and help our little rural school. We need to update our school and class libraries in order to provide more recent books to our students. There are many students in our school who have little or no access to books outside of the school community.
We hold an annual scholastic book fair in order to help offset costs. Many teachers purchase books with their own money or look to garage sales and donations in order to keep up to date. We find that being in rural Manitoba, we do not have the access to new books that we would like. For that reason, we decided to include a field trip to the Chapters store at Polo Park last year. The students loved it! Some of them had never been to a big book store before and were amazed!
We have a school wide literacy plan that has been tremendously beneficial to our students. For Christmas gift exchange students bought books for each other. We have put a love of reading at the forefront of our school program. We need to be able to provide more current, interesting reading to our students in order to keep the love of reading strong.

I think it is important that you donate books because reading is good for you. Reading is something you do on a daily basis. If you cannot read, you cannot do many things. Schools need books for social studies, science, reading and a lot more. Reading helps you a lot. Think, if you did not ...

My Mom helped me fall in love with reading. As a child, every night for as long as I can remember my Mom read us 2 bedtime stories. My 3 siblings and I sat in the living room curled up around Mom eating a snack and listening to her sweet, soft, loving voice as she read wonderful books to us. ...
There is no greater gift than to provide the tools that will set a young person on a lifelong path...the love of books!!
We know how much Mr. Marriott loves going into the classroom to read to the students at MES! This is a great program and we are delighted to be a part of it! Go, MES, go!
There is nothing better than reading a great children’s book to a group of students. Reading books to MES students is one of my most favourite things to do as the principal of the school. It makes my day when kids ask me to read to them and are excited when I visit their classroom with new ...
Looking forward to getting our new books!
