Will You Be Coming To School In June?

If either you or your sibling will be returning to classes for help with your online learning in June, please return your library books while you are there. A bin will be places outside the library to minimize contact. Please just leave the books in the bin. THANK YOU!!!

You do NOT have to come to school only to return library books. This is ONLY IF YOU ARE THERE ALREADY.

NEW LOOK


The LLC has undergone a MAJOR makeover ‼️ 

This fresh new space is waiting for your return… hopefully sooner rather than later. I wish I was able to show you around in person but for now the pictures will have to do. 

There is now a designated set of tables for when classes come in, comfy cafe style seating for study block, large tables for group work, and beautiful new shelving to display the fiction and graphic novels. 

I can’t wait to see all the amazing learning that will happen once we are back in the building 💜 

TumbleBooks Teens

 A great resource for ebooks and audiobooks. There is a great selection for all reading levels. Lots of Hi-lo titles, graphic novels, classics, poetry, teen fiction, and many Shakespeare titles!    I

t is part of the Tumblebooks platform, we don’t have a district subscription but it is free for now (not sure how long this will last but I best guess would be June 30th at least).

Stay Safe Spartans

Welcome back Spartans. I hope that you all were able to spend time with your families over the break and are staying home and safe. As we start this new adventure into online learning there is a couple of things that you need to know:

First— DO NOT WORRY! This is new for everyone and everything will be worked out in time. At some point this week you will be hearing from your teachers.

Second— Make sure you are able to get onto your Office 365 account and are familiar with Teams. If you type sd36.ca/o into your browser it will take you directly to the Office 365 page.

If you do not know your Surrey Schools login (this is the same one that you use to get onto the computers at school) then you will have to contact one of your teachers (emails are on the school website). They will be able to change it for you.

Third— if you are wanting to read, and I sure hope that you are, the library is here for you! There are plenty of ebooks that can be accessed through the catalog. There is a tab at the top of this page with all of the instructions. It is also on the Instagram account. @barnes.and.books Make sure you are following for school updates and announcements.

It is also possible to sign up for a Surrey Public Library card online, if you don’t already have one. They have a large collection of ebooks, audiobooks, and magazines.

Lastly— Please reach out if you need ANYTHING! You are not alone in this.

Stay inside and stay safe Spartans! 💛
