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.

Love this. Nothing brings you closer than reading to your children at bedtime.
With our location being rural many families are unable to travel to a book store. It is important that our school library have a variety of books that will interest all children and develop a love of reading.
Reading is important to me because it gives me a chance to relax. I can take some time to myself and escape. I enjoy reading true stories as well so I get to learn about a wide variety of topics.
MacGregor is a small school and small community that doesn't have a lot of access to books. They are an hour away from the nearest book store. Therefore, they do not have many new releases to enjoy. The small rural schools miss out on a lot of opportunities so I would like to support them and ...
