We are incredibly grateful that Indigo Kelowna has chosen Pearson Road Elementary as this year’s Adopt a School recipient. I feel fortunate to work at such an amazing school and I want to do everything I can to make it even better for our students. One of my goals is to transform our library into a 21st century library learning commons where students come not only to read books, but where multiple classes work together to explore inquiry-based learning experiences, where students engage in critical thinking and have opportunities to be creative, and most importantly where students become lifelong learners. In order to make this happen, we want to make the space more inviting for students, so we asked them to imagine what their dream library would look like. Although they included items such as technology and comfortable seating on their list, most students just asked for more books. Unfortunately, we have a very dated collection of books in our library, and only a small budget to replace them. Please help support our school in purchasing new books so we can make the library a place of wonder!
