BRIAN P.S. BUZZ…


 WEEK OF JUNE 25th, 2018


MANY THANKS TO OUR VOLUNTEERS!!!!:

Last Wednesday, we hosted a “Volunteer Appreciation” Breakfast for our many volunteers this year. We are lucky to have the support of the Brian P.S. community. Without your help, field trips, scientist in the classroom workshops, pizza lunches, sports teams, etc. wouldn’t be possible. Thank you very much this year!!  


EXCITING NEWS…THE CREATION OF A LEARNING COMMONS AT BRIAN P.S.:

 

During the last School Council meeting on June 5th, Principal Kevin Freckelton and guest teacher-librarian Lisa Surgenor proposed a re-IMAGINING of the library into a 21 st century Learning Commons, complete with an expanded book collection, new shelving, seating, Maker Spaces, and technology. A draft design has been attached, along with costs of the project…we’re looking for sponsors for each item to make it happen! For more information, please check out the article: https://www.edutopia.org/blog/21st-century-libraries-learning-commons-beth-holland

 

If you are interested in donating one or more of the items on the list and/or you are interested in sponsoring aspects of the Learning Commons, please contact the Principal, Kevin Freckelton at kevin.freckelton@tdsb.on.ca
